Over the years, men have often asked me how they could “know” God’s will for their career. They thought if they had the answer, they would get a much clearer perspective on their jobs and their direction in life.
I tell them God’s will regarding their work isn’t some mystical revelation they have to hunt for. Rather, it’s spelled out clearly in the Bible: “Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men” (Colossians 3:23), and “Be obedient to those who are your masters… not… as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ” (Ephesians 6:5-6). When you see this as God’s will for your job, it will transform your attitude in the workplace-and have an incredibly positive impact on everyone around you!
God, it’s great to know that by seeking You and retaining this mind-set, I can be confident that I’m in Your will. I choose to work heartily and honor my “masters”-because I honor You, my ultimate Master. Amen.
