“My Father’s Business: Taking Ministry to the Marketplace” Workshop – March 19

Surveys reveal that most Christians feel they are not being trained for their calling in the workplace through the local church. Further, many Christians are frustrated because they don’t see a fit for their gifts in traditional ministry settings.

And A Child Shall Lead Them…

7 Keys to Recover What You’ve Lost in Life by Patrice Tsague

“… So David inquired of the Lord, saying ‘Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?’ And He answered him, ‘Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.’ ~ 1 Samuel 30:8

by Patrice Tsague

Have the last two years been tough for you? Did you lose more than you expected? Are you wondering whether you should continue or not?

My advice to you is not only to continue, but press forward with greater intensity and you will not just thrive but you will recover all that you lost. Like you, David found himself in a situation where he lost more than he could handle and even his life was in danger. After facing rejection and humiliation by the Philistines, he returns to his home to find out that invaders have come in, burned it with fire and taken the women and the children captive, including his wives (I Samuel 29, 30:1-6). Instead of throwing a pity party, David strengthens himself in the Lord, seeks God’s wisdom and goes after the invaders. David is able to recover all that he lost without exception.

The devils’ job is to attempt to steal, kill and destroy us but Jesus came that we may have life and have it more abundantly. Where sin abounds grace abounds much more; the greater the defeat, the greater the restoration. Nothing the devil can do to you will hinder you from what God has planned for you.

How do you pursue and recover?

  1. Do not pursue out of anger or revenge
  2. Do not rely on your own strength
  3. Prepare yourself in the natural
  4. Start with the low hanging fruits
  5. Trust God for miracles
  6. Do not be intimidated nor afraid of failure
  7. Do not be afraid of success

As you pursue, know that it will take faith, for without faith it is impossible to please God. Once you recover, do not become selfish but be generous with the spoils and be a blessing to others, even those who may not have helped you along the way. Once David recovered all, some of his men felt they should not share the spoil with those who did not help, but David, a man after God’s own heart, rebuked them and said they will all share alike (I Samuel 30:21-25). Leadership is not how well you can protect and avenge yourself but rather how you are able to be an instrument of inspiration and blessing to others no matter what your circumstances, and regardless of what they have done to you.

Are you ready for complete restoration? Are you willing to share with others once restored? Pursue and you will surely recover all.

Leave Your Old Luggage Behind

… one thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before. I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14

We’re into the second week of the New Year. How are your goals coming along? Does this year look any different than last year so far? Regardless of whether you have seen a big change or not, don’t get discouraged. Just because the calendar changed to a new year doesn’t mean your life has changed yet. True transformation takes time.

One thing I’ve had to challenge myself to do is not fall back into last year’s habits that were unproductive and unprofitable. Just like old luggage, things that are comfortable and familiar are often hard to let go of. But just like a piece of luggage with a hole in it, if you try to carry new ideas, opportunities, and resources using your old way of doing things into this new year, you will eventually lose them. And then you’ll end up repeating the same unfulfilling year just with a different number at the end of the date.

Getting to your next level in business or life is not an overnight process. Radical results may not come immediately, but if you keep doing the right things, the right things will happen for you. A fresh commitment to consistency will crush complacency and catapult you to success.

Happy New You!

This year will only be truly happy if you allow God to have complete control of your life. Your #1 prayer this year should be “God lead me to do what you’re blessing” versus asking God to bless what you’re doing or want to do.

Can Anything Good Come Out of Nazareth? by Patrice Tsague


And Nathanael said to him, ‘Can anything good come out of Nazareth?’ Philip said to him, ‘Come and see.'” ~ John 1:46

by Patrice Tsague

 

Where are you from?  What family were you born in?  Are people surprised by your accomplishments due to your family background, place of birth, race or nationality?  Have you limited your scope due to these factors?  Have you ever asked the question, “Can anything good come out of….?”

Nathanael asks this question about Jesus when Phillip introduces Him as the prophet from Nazareth,  Philip’s response is, “Come and see.”

Prior to the birth of Christ, Nazareth was not an important part of the national and religious life of Israel. It had a bad reputation in morals and religious life. Even the Galilean language had a crudeness to it. Due to these factors, Nathanael is surprised that the Messiah would come from Nazareth or be identified by it. God has an interesting sense of humor. He chooses to bring greatness out of a place or person who seems unlikely; the less likely the human possibilities, the more likely the divine possibility.

The Lord laid upon our hearts to relocate the Nehemiah Project headquarters to Portland, Oregon in 2010. As we contemplated the move, we asked, “Why Portland?” Even after we moved, many who live in Portland asked us the same question. They are asking, in other words, “If you could move anywhere else in the country, why would you choose a place so liberal, so un-churched, one of the least ethnically diverse in the country, and one of the most hit economically. Can anything good come out of Portland?”

The good news is good things can come out of anyplace where God is present and there is a righteous remnant who are committed to His will. I ask all who are curious about “Why Portland?” to take a visit and see a city where, despite its challenges, God is moving in a dynamic way in the marketplace. From weekly small groups, to networking events, to philanthropy, to social transformation, to equipping His people, God is at work in Portland. Prophetically, Portland will serve as one of the model cities of what God can do when people come together across denominational, political and ethnic lines to bring community transformation for His glory.

I come from a well-to-do family in Cameroon, Africa; however, because I was born in Africa, viewed as rebellious and very playful by my family, relocated to America at a young age, did not speak English at all, did not go to seminary or have an MBA, many thought, “Can anything good come out of that boy?”  My response is, “Wait and see.”

What has held you back? Whom have you allowed to define your destiny?  No matter your origin, race, education,  or circumstances, if you commit your works to the Lord and trust Him with your life and business, He will do more through you than you can hope or imagine.  If it does not happen on this side of glory, wait until you get to heaven.  You will be amazed.

So the next time you are asked, “Can anything good come out of…?”  Just respond, “Wait and see.” As you prepare to celebrate this Christmas season, remember where our Savior came from, remember what He did, and remember His words, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father”  (John 14:12).

The Pursuit of Happiness by Patrice Tsague


Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled.”
~ Matthew 5:6

by Patrice Tsague

 

The American Declaration of Independence includes this famous line, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” One may argue that the term the pursuit of happiness is an empty slogan and the fuel behind our materialistic society. Since many entrepreneurs are in pursuit of happiness they believe that anything that will make them happy is their right to have.  Although this view of happiness is unscriptural, the writers of the Declaration of Independence were not totally off base when they used those terms. The Bible does teach about happiness, but within the context of it being something that is a divine favor from God as a result of our obedience to His Word and His will.

The word “happiness” comes from the word “blessed”. In His Sermon on the Mount, in what is commonly known as the Beatitudes, Jesus says, “blessed [or happy] are the poor in spirit, blessed [or happy] are those who mourn blessed [or happy] are the meek, and blessed [or happy] are those who thirst and hunger after righteousness“. We can therefore conclude that God does want us to be happy, but this happiness is the bi-product of a spiritual pursuit and not the end unto itself.  Happiness is not guaranteed; rather, it is a reward to those who do the will of the Father.

How do Biblical Entrepreneurs pursue this happiness? This happiness is attained by acquiring the following spiritual attributes taken from Matthew 5:3-11:

  1. Poor in spirit: Recognition of our spiritual poverty before God. We realize that we are incomplete; only He can enrich our lives and without Him we are miserable.
  2. Mourn:  to have feeling of grief. We must not be too proud but rather grieve before God for the unrighteousness around us so He may bring us comfort.
  3. Meek: Power under control. We must not use our advantage or talents to advance our own agenda but rather to protect and defend others.
  4. Hunger and thirst after righteousness: we must continuously demonstrate a strong desire for God and His Word.
  5. Mercy: A sense of compassion which leads to action. We must demonstrate compassion towards others, especially those who are suffering.
  6. Pure in heart: A singleness of focus before God and allowing his word to transform us on the inside.
  7. Peacemakers: We must be people who attempt to bring harmony and reconciliation to those who are estranged from God and others.
  8. Persecuted for righteousness sake: Allowing ourselves to suffer in the hands of those who do not know nor understand our Savior and His plan for our lives for the purpose of advancing the will of our Savior.

Do you still want to be happy? If so, covet after these things and happiness will be yours.
