I started a new business, which I had been planning for a while, to kick-start the New Year. Being a staunch Christian, I placed God at the center of my business.
Hence, I requested my pastor to come during my business launch to bless my newfound venture. As He gave a short sermon, I picked some verses about business success, most from the book of Psalms.
Months have passed, and I see the Bible verses manifesting in my business. For this reason, I would like to hear similar business success stories from other people.
Hence, I am sharing this article’s best Psalms to read for business success.
