As kingdom business owners, we are called to use our gifts, talents, and resources to bring glory to God and to make a positive impact in the world. However, it can be easy to get caught up in the day-to-day demands of running a business and to feel limited in our ability to expand our reach and influence. In this blog, we will explore how to enlarge our territory, take on more responsibility, and create more opportunities to do God’s work through our kingdom business.
- Pray for guidance and wisdom. The first step in enlarging your territory is to seek God’s guidance and wisdom. Pray for clarity on what He is calling you to do, and ask Him to show you the way forward. In James 1:5, the Bible says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
- Focus on your strengths and passions. To be effective in expanding your territory, it’s important to focus on your strengths and passions. What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing? By focusing on what you are naturally talented at and passionate about, you can create a business that is both fulfilling and successful.
- Build strong relationships. Relationships are key to success in business and in life. Make an effort to build strong relationships with your customers, employees, and other business owners. Network, attend events, and seek out opportunities to connect with others in your community.
- Seek mentorship and guidance. Find a mentor or coach who can provide guidance and support as you navigate the challenges of expanding your business. Seek out someone who has experience in your field and who can offer advice and encouragement.
- Be willing to take risks. To enlarge your territory, you may need to step outside of your comfort zone and take risks. Don’t be afraid to try new things and to pursue new opportunities. Remember that God is with you and will provide the courage and strength you need to succeed. In Philippians 4:13, the Bible says, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”
- Give back and serve others. As your business grows and expands, it’s important to give back and serve others. This can include volunteering your time and resources to support organizations and causes that align with your values and mission. By serving others, you can deepen your relationship with God and bring glory to His name.
Enlarging your territory and expanding your kingdom business is not just about growing your business and increasing your influence. It’s about doing more of God’s work and making a positive impact in the world. By seeking God’s guidance and wisdom, focusing on your strengths and passions, building strong relationships, seeking mentorship and guidance, taking risks, and serving others, you can create a business that brings glory to God and makes a positive impact in the world.
