When I gave a public call for spiritual professionals to lead a marketplace transformation (published as the cover story of Charisma Digital, December 2019) I had no idea that within 90 days, the globe would be turned upside down by COVID19, and we would be transformed ourselves.
Here we are in a most interesting posture: brought to our knees in humility and repentance, while in our hearts, we look up to God for new assignments.
Everything has changed, and this is the perfect moment to welcome the Holy Spirit to move mightily within the marketplace, bringing a practical working wisdom that changes everything.
It's a holy moment. And it's a new day.
Shifting past COVID19 takes doing business with God at the helm of our lives and all our plans.
I believe that some of the greatest ideas will emerge during this crisis when men and women get still and reconsider the desires and gifts God has placed in them for such a time as this. Some will discover totally new callings and businesses.
The world is looking for solutions, and the answers will flow when men and women embrace their giftings and callings:
—If you are called to train, train your mentees to discover what's possible in this new day.
—If you are called to preach, preach the gospel of transformation on every platform available to you.
—If you are an entrepreneur, do business with God in a new way to meet the needs of your market now.
—If you are a writer, write the messages God has penned on your heart so others may come to life...
Spiritually, God is revealing His plans through His sons and daughters (you are more ready than you know) in this hour. The process of finding new opportunities and a new normal when the change is so vast requires nothing less than a personal transformation by the Holy Spirit.
"Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God's will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes" (Rom. 12:2, TPT).
3 Steps You Must Take to Shift Into the New Marketplace Transformation
- Update your assignment (business or job) in light of the current times and needs.
- Rework your plan: Find new outlets for your products and ideas.
- Take action: Join a community and shift together.
This is to be our finest hour as we respond to the Holy Spirit and shift our plans, transforming the marketplace!
