Greetings, Dear Writerpreneur,
I pray that you are well.
Welcome to another Empowering Post, where I share my teachings on why building a thriving writing ministry is possible for you and other Christian Authors.
In today’s article, I want to encourage you to build your writing career upon a sure foundation. You can accomplish this by using various scriptures to empower your brand and business.
From this post, I want you to learn more about the power of the blessing--or God's word of empowerment--because it will impact what you do with your authorship.
I’m so confident of that because of what I have read in His Word.
I can’t imagine what it would be like to try and run my online company without the help of the Holy Spirit and God’s Word. The Bible is rich with wisdom concerning matters related to business and finances; and the principles presented are so accurate and sure that even those who do not believe in the Lord practice these truths.
So, let's get into today's discussion. What better place to start than Genesis 1:26-28.
Your Business Can Prosper
God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them
reflecting our nature
So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea,
the birds in the air, the cattle,
And, yes, Earth itself,
and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.”
God created human beings;
he created them godlike,
Reflecting God’s nature.
He created them male and female.
God blessed them:
“Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge!
Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air,
for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.” (MSG)
When you read this passage, you learn that God willingly relinquished authority and power to man to control and manage the Earth. This meant that it was man’s responsibility to cultivate and nourish it, not God’s. In essence, He had already done the work; now it was up to man to maintain it.
The principle that I wish to highlight with this passage is that God will give you an idea, something that He desires to see you perform. This idea is likened unto the entire creation that He entrusted to Adam and Eve.
While it is He that gives you this powerful vision, it is up to you to maintain it, cultivate it, and nourish it.
God declares, even from the beginning, that we are blessed; that we have the power to reproduce and multiply; that we have the ability to prosper in what we put our hands to do.
This is enough revelation that ought to inspire you to do what God commanded man to do in the beginning: Take charge!
All it takes is one idea, one word from the Lord to ignite the drive and passion that is needed to carry out your writing business. No matter how small or large the organization, if God is with you, He will empower you for success.
I remember when I first began looking into doing my online company. Initially, I wanted something that would help me earn some money, any money just to get me through my former situation. But once I began to realize that this idea was something that God gave me, that’s when I started to draw upon His wisdom to help me in cultivating this vision.
Once I had an understanding of what my God-given idea was, then it was up to me to cultivate and tend to it. If I did my part, then I would begin to experience the manifestation of God's blessing on my business.
You can take this same word and apply it to your own writing ministry.
God Grants This Unmerited Power
"If you start thinking to yourselves, “I did all this. And all by myself. I’m rich. It’s all mine!”—well, think again. Remember that God, your God, gave you the strength to produce all this wealth so as to confirm the covenant that he promised to your ancestors—as it is today." (Deuteronomy 8:17-18, MSG)
This is by far one of the most important and sobering passages that I reference regarding business.
As your company begins to grow, and it surely will, you may find it tempting to think that it was somehow your abilities and your strength that caused its success.
No person has been able to generate success without the help and assistance of others. This is especially true for Believers who own and operate their own company.
It is God who gives us the power to get wealth.
This power can demonstrate itself in many ways. For example, knowledge is one of the most powerful tools that we have. When we are educated in a matter, we understand how to perform tasks that others cannot accomplish.
This power can also be demonstrated through the Wisdom of God, which we readily find in the Bible. Consider Solomon in his youth: As a young man, he did not ask the Lord for wealth and riches; but he did inquire of God to grant him wisdom to rule His people (see 2 Chronicles 1:11).
In this instance, Solomon made the right choice. He had basically asked the Lord to guide his ways and direction as it pertained to the business of ruling the kingdom. In like manner, we ought—as a necessity—to inquire of the Lord, that He would give us wisdom concerning the matters related to our individual companies.
This is how we possess the power and ability to gain wealth; and in God’s Kingdom, there is no limit to what this wealth can look like. All we need to do is ask, and we shall receive.
My dependence upon the Lord regarding my online company is so great, especially because I entered into this industry without having any real knowledge of what will and will not work.
I do not go a day without petitioning the Lord concerning ideas on how to expand the company; and He never ceases to amaze me. In like manner, it is imperative that you keep the Holy Spirit in mind as you move through the process of starting your online writing company.
Commit Your Ways--Your Business--to God
"Put God in charge of your work,
then what you’ve planned will take place." (Proverbs 16:3)
So simple, yet so profound.
This passage works all the time!
As you continue to bring your business before the Lord, allow the Holy Spirit to take charge of your plans and purposes. I know for some people, giving away your control is a tough thing to do. But who wouldn’t want to listen to what the Holy Spirit has to say, especially because He knows all things.
I have determined that with LiyahAmore Publishing, we work in direct congruence with the Spirit of the Lord. At times, He will give me suggestions and ideas that I think are strange; yet, when I implement them, they prosper and succeed.
You see, even though I can’t see or understand how something will work out, my faith alone in the Lord brings all things together for my good.
So, remember to put the Lord in charge of your work. The promise is that whatever you’ve planned to do, it will prosper and take place. That’s awesome!

Step 2: Get Trained
The majority of new and aspiring Christian Authors assume that because God gave them the vision to write a book, then it's up to God to put everything together. They fail to realize that the success of their ministry is based on their training.
There are five pillars that Christian Authors generally lack:
