Kingdom wealth operates on a unique but foundational premise best referred to as God’s economy. And like all dimensions of God’s Kingdom as explained by Jesus, it starts like a grain of mustard seed: small, innocuous, but potent and unstoppable in its growth.
“God’s economy” defies the principles and assumed power structures commonly accepted by this world as the foundations of wealth. The odds-defying potential of “God’s economy” is illustrated by the results of God’s guidance to Isaac during a time of extreme economic distress:
“There was famine in the land and the LORD appeared to Isaac and said: ‘Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you and perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father.’ So Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundred-fold, and the LORD blessed him. So he began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous.” (Genesis 26:1-3, 12, 13)
“The power to get wealth, that He might establish His covenant.” Against all odds and prevailing wisdom, Isaac sowed during a famine, because God told him to. And he prospered. Operating in covenant with Almighty God is foundational to the operation of God’s economy. In God’s economy, not only is God involved and at the center of the action; but the expectation for the outcome exceeds what might ever be hoped for or accomplished in the natural.
THE MICRO AND THE MACRO-LEVELS OF GOD’S ECONOMY
In God's economy, micro-enterprises represent an important foundation to God’s economic system, because they are linked to building up not only God’s people who operate the small business ventures but to the community of which they are apart. Micro-businesses are like the grain of mustard seed with their potential. Today, entrepreneurial Kingdom ventures are appearing in distressed areas, not unlike that faced by Isaac and bypassing the economic down-cycles of those regions. Like the astounding result of Isaac reaping a hundred-fold during a time of famine, they are serving as a witness to the goodness and blessings that God has for his people. Kingdom micro-enterprise development is already impacting entire communities around the world for the Lord.
While there is a pronounced growth of entrepreneurial, small business-development Kingdom activity emerging in areas of poverty and distress around the globe, God’s economy is by no means limited to the micro-level. Mid-sized and larger successful Kingdom businesses bring even greater impact. Simultaneously, Kingdom business coalitions are sponsoring and working together to establish community-based initiatives for God's purposes. Likewise, believer-directed business start-up incubator programs are creating businesses that will flourish while competitors struggle and lose ground.
In God’s economy, there will also be believers who establish special venture funds, as well as operations that acquire failing businesses and turn them around. Businesses are already being set up specifically with Kingdom agendas in mind. Businesses incorporating business-ministry alliances. And regardless of the size of the initiative, at the forefront of these activities will be Kingdom entrepreneurs.
