God has a niche with my name on it.
“When Joshua had grown old, the LORD said to him, "You are now very old, and there are still very large areas of land to be taken over.”
- Joshua 13:1 (New International Version)
One of my fondest memories from starting my freelance business was when I met my first client. It was so crazy because a few weeks before meeting her, I had written down in my journal exactly who I wanted to work with. I imagined what kind of business they’d be starting, what they’d be struggling with and what they would want me to do for them. I’ll never forget that amazing feeling of meeting her and literally everything she was saying was checking boxes off my list. I knew God had connected us and was showing me that there are actually people out there in need of what I offer. That taught me early on that even for my business, God has set aside specific property that’s just for me like he did for all the tribes of Israel. Each one of them had a specific plot of land designated for their tribe alone. Unlike the limited land they were dealing with, God has unlimited niches in the marketplace with our names on them, waiting for us to jump on them. In his lifetime, Joshua had already captured over 30 kings and their territories, but there was still expansive land to be taken over.
I dare you to ask God to reveal your niche (or niches!) to you. And don’t get mad if you see someone else working an area you had already wanted because God’s got plenty more where that came from reserved just for you. Go take it!
