How Would God Run Your Business?
Isaiah 58 is commonly understood as the fasting chapter, “Is this not the fast that I have chosen?” In fact, Isaiah 58 is not about fasting but actually about how to run a business. Jesus gave us the Sermon on the Mount as a blueprint for His paradigm of living life –Christianity 101: the Right Way to Walk a Christian Life. Isaiah 58, to me, is the business equivalent –Business Christianity 101: How to Run a Business.
In this Chapter, God is talking to passionate believers who are seeking the Lord’s guidance and who “delight to know His ways.” But in verse 3 they say, “Our complaint, we say ‘Why have we fasted and You do not see? Why have we humbled ourselves and You do not notice?’” So, here is the question, and this is the whole point of Isaiah 58 — God, we’re on fire for You. We’re pushing. We’re asking. Why aren’t You blessing? Why aren’t You helping us?
