It'll all make sense soon.
"This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength."
- 1 Corinthians 1:25 (New Living Translation)
A few months ago I invested in a really awesome marketing masterclass taught by a well-known influencer. We were able to ask questions at the end so I shared about how I'm working on building the Big Idea Food community just to learn if they knew anything about communities and had any advice in the area. Long story short, although this person acknowledged that communities were cool, based on what they'd researched and heard from other entrepreneurs about them, they concluded that they just weren't delivering a high enough ROI to make them worth the hassle. Now, I could've let that discourage me from believing in what God had already shown me but:
I refuse to let someone else's "wisdom" override what God told me to do.
People will be well meaning and provide all kinds of advice and tell you what they think you should do all day long but at the end of the day, what did God say? What has He already put in your spirit to do? They don't know what God has been talking to you about, but you & God do. I don't care how successful they are, if what they're suggesting doesn't align, thank them kindly and keep it moving.
This week's scripture tells us that no matter how foolish a plan might seem, if God gave it to you? You can trust that it's ultimately going to be wiser than anything someone in the world could have come up with. That's because God knows not only what's best for your business, but also what's best for your mental health, the unexpected change in your life that He knows is coming, and everything else that pertains to your future. And He's committed to making sure that the blessings coming to you through building your business have no sorrow attached to them (Proverbs 10:22).
That's why, no matter what, we always have to trust that God's plan is the best plan.
A good friend of mine told me today that sometimes we have to sacrifice looking "wise" in order to obey what God told us to do. I want you to be encouraged that even if your faith got you out here looking crazy, it'll all make sense soon. And anybody who doubted you will be scratching their heads like "why didn't I think of that?"

1 Corinthians 1:26-27 & Isaiah 29:14 → God likes to flex on the world just to remind them that He's the whole God and we're not lol
1 Corinthians 3:18-20 → Only God's wisdom is true wisdom. Remember that next time you question His directions.
