If you're feeling that tug on your heart to change your business, I urge you to keep reading. The story of Noah's obedience to God's call can serve as an inspiration and guide for your own journey.

So take a deep breath and dive into the rest of this article. You won't regret it.
I can only imagine the fear and loneliness that Noah must have experienced while holed up on the boat for those long months. The thought of being surrounded by water for miles, with no land in sight, must have been incredibly daunting. And to think of the overwhelming sights and smells on the ark, with floating bodies and the desperate cries of those left behind, it's hard to fathom the emotional toll it must have taken on Noah and his family.
Despite all this, the Bible does not describe Noah as having these emotions. Perhaps his faith was so unwavering that he never trembled in his trust in God's plan, or perhaps the magnitude of what God was doing was simply more powerful and enduring than any fear or loneliness he may have felt. Whatever the reason, it's clear that Noah's endurance and patience were truly remarkable.
If you find yourself in a situation where you're witnessing an overwhelming amount of ungodly behavior in your business or workplace, I implore you to take heed. God may be calling you to be an instrument of change. And if you're obedient to that calling, I have faith that God will protect and guide you through the storm, just as he did with Noah.
But let me be frank - if you do answer God's call, you need to be prepared for the hardships that may come your way. You'll likely see and experience tragedy, pain, and bitterness. It won't be an easy road, but with God's guidance and strength, you can weather the storm.
If you feel that God is nudging you to make dramatic changes in your business, I encourage you to read and reflect on the story of Noah in Genesis (Genesis 5 thru Genesis 7). Pray for guidance and then take bold steps in obedience to God's will. It is through our obedience and reliance on Him that effective change can happen in our workplaces.
And as you come out of the storm, imagine the impact you will have on those around you - the encouragement and relief you will bring, the testimony of God's love and provision. Your story can be a powerful witness for others, and your obedience can lead to amazing blessings for you and your team.
The #1 BIG IDEA of this article is that as a Christian business owner, you may be called to make dramatic changes in your workplace in order to be an instrument of change for God. Just as Noah endured the storm on the ark and remained faithful to God's plan, you too can weather the hardships and make a powerful impact by following His will. Now is the time to take action and reflect on the story of Noah, praying for guidance and taking bold steps to bring about effective change in your business. By being obedient to God's calling, you can be a powerful witness and bring blessings to you and your team. So don't hesitate - take action now and be the change that you are called to be.
