Working with God’s Perspective,
Most of us start a new job with enthusiasm and anticipation for what the future will hold. But inevitably you will eventually experience unrealistic demands and challenges with supervisors that can cause work to feel more like a jail sentence than a place to cultivate your passions and pursue your purpose.
The good news is God promises to guide us along the best pathway for our life. He will advise us and watch over us. (Psalm 32:8). He will give you a perspective that allows you to work with a smile.
As we meditate on God’s word and connect with Him throughout the day, He will provide us with insight to help crown our efforts with success (Joshua 1:8). We have a fresh perspective to embrace the challenge and the outcome with renewed willingness to tackle the twists and turns.
God has prepared ahead of time for us to do good works (Ephesians 2:10). He gives us hope that as we will be able to enjoy the journey.
When we see work from God’s perspective it changes everything. Whether we are keeping up with the checklist, providing customer service, answering calls, following up on emails or looking after loved ones, our primary purpose is to do all for the honor and glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).
Honoring God in all we do causes even our work to become an expression of love and service to others, no matter what kind of work you do. That’s something to get excited about!
As we begin the new year, decide to work with God’s perspective and enjoy the benefits that come with serving God.
“...Don’t just do what you have to do to get by, but work heartily, as Christ’s servants doing what God wants you to do. And work with a smile on your face, always keeping in mind that no matter who happens to be giving the orders, you’re really serving God...” Ephesians 6:5-8 MSG
