Colossians 3:23-24 (KJV) And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
After working with a government establishment for twenty years, Grace continued to struggle financially. She was very committed to prayers, evangelism, and other Church activities but she was lackadaisical with her job, and this was the general attitude of her coworkers too. They would often say ‘‘it’s government work, I cannot kill myself for it’’.
Grace had gotten all her due promotions when they were due but things were very tight for her financially. Her frustration led her to seek counsel from her Pastor who by the word of knowledge told her that her attitude to her job had been a hindrance to her financial freedom. Grace turned over a new leaf and began to do her work as to the Lord; putting her best to her job. After she changed her attitude to her job, her financial struggles ended. She received wisdom to better manage her resources, and new financial doors opened to her.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 (KJV) says ‘‘Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might…’’ and in Philippians 2:14-15 (KJV), we are to ‘‘[d]o all things without murmurings and disputings: that [we] may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom [we] shine as lights in the world’’.
If you are a child of God, you must do all your works as to the Lord. This is how you will be distinguished from the perverse and crooked coworkers among whom you are to shine as light. Your workplace is a platform for evangelism.
Go into today knowing that God is the one who rewards you when your work is done as unto Him.
Prayer Confession: I will do my work as to the Lord and shine as God’s light in my workplace in Jesus’ name. Amen.
