July 10, 2016 OUR THOUGHTS AND WAYS
Many of us have seen how people in our company make things hard on themselves. We have seen where they try too hard to get approval from the boss. We see where they may twist the truth to attempt to get ahead. We may see them think they can get promoted or get a raise by doing what their management wants; however, they have it all wrong. To move ahead, we need God. Our thoughts and ways are nothing compared to His. He can help us get ahead in our work for Him and His rewards will be greater than any company can give.
Isaiah 55:8 "'My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,' says the LORD. 'And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.'" (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us not to do wrong in Your eyes in order to please management at work. Help us to remember it doesn't pay to do wrong to try to get ahead. Remind us daily we are to be working for You and allowing You to guide us as only You can. Help us this week to focus on pleasing You and obeying only You while we are at work at while we are at home. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
God wants us to succeed but we can't truly succeed without Him.
If we want to get ahead at work, we need to put God first in our lives.
God is all we need at work, at home and everywhere in between.
We are to live and work in a way that pleases God.
We are to love and serve God with all our heart and soul.
Deuteronomy 10:12b "He requires only that you fear the LORD your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul." (NLT)
Focus: Our work is not just doing what our employers ask of us. Our work is to serve the Lord with all our heart and soul.
