Keeping Your Business Faith In Hard Covid-19 Times

Bishop Pride Sibiya
Keeping Business Faith In Difficult Times Like This Covid-19 Season





“Sometimes in our lives we all have pain, we all have sorrow, but if we are wise, we know that there’s always tomorrow” (Michael Bolton).



Daily, hospitals are filled with people who are seeking for help and many times, urgent help. It is very difficult to define what pain is yet we all know what it is. Let me put it this way, we all know what pain is until we are asked what it is. This is because, though we may not have the intellectual capacity to precisely expatiate the concept, we are all degreed in some form of knowledge of pain experientially. We are all fighting pain and ultimate death. What if it is a season that we have to sit by the hospital bedside of ailing business prospects in the era of Covid-19?

Dear busines friends, the Holy book is very clear that in life there is a time and season for everything. This includes the things we presume good, and also evil (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8). As we move to the shifting of seasons, we are reminded of this truth that, in life there are seasons. For man this season we are in has been overally deemed negative. But is it possible to keep faith even in a seemingly, negative time-space?



Resounding in my inner ears are the words of the greatest businessman I have known since 1984, the man Jesus Christ: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God” (Matthew 5:8). These words are interesting. Many people direct them to a time where people see God in Heaven as a reward of living the way He likes. That is true, but Jesus did not directly say so. My distinct way of looking at it is not to add what Jesus said. Good friends, blessed are the poor in heart for they shall see God…here or in Heaven…both here on earth and in Heaven. It is important to note that, in such times where business and business people are going through trying times, many people see nothing but the impending danger of closure. People are seeing nothing beyond the scourge of Covid-19, yet the Scripture says that the pure in heart shall see God. Ladies and gentleman, it is possible to see God in these trying times.



The businesspeople in Psalms 107 are risk-takers, even in the business field. While they face storms in their business, they remember faith in God, and it is only that which will deliver them. It is in these storms that they see the hand of God: “They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. (vv23-29).



As I conclude, dear friends, even in the storms of life and business keep your faith in God. Always remember that, even in a storm, Jesus can walk on the waters, you will not drown. This is the time to keep focused on Jesus because if we focus on the storm of Covid-19 we will drown like Peter. Change your attitude towards this season, this is time adapt and readapt, align and realign, think and meditate, fast and pray, innovate and create, rebrand and re-fire. Surely, this sickness shall not end in death(John 11:4).
