Mundane Work Still Offering to God - July 10, 2013

Post  James on Mon Jul 08, 2013 2:03 am

Psalms 90:17
17 And may the Lord our God show us his approval and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful!

John 10:10
10 The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

Romans 12:1
1 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.

God establishes the work of our hands by giving us gifts that will make a difference in the lives of others. That's what success is - being what God meant for you to be. Jesus said, "My purpose is to give [you] a rich and satisfying life." (John 10:10 NLT)

You may be thinking, Well, Rick, what about work that needs to be done but doesn't express my gifts; it just has to be done?

Any homemaker knows exactly what I'm talking about. I would say to you that every job, even the one you are suited for, has mundane parts. Every job has some parts to it that you won't like, but you can still worship God through those parts of the job.

And I would suggest you adopt this attitude: "Maybe this job that I'm in right now is a phase of my life and I'm not going to be here the rest of my life. But this is where I am for now; therefore, I will worship God right now."

The apostle Paul says, "Take your everyday, ordinary life - your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life - and place it before God as an offering." (Romans 12:1 MSG)

God gave all of us talents and gifts that he wanted us to use!
Whatever that talent may be, remember that just because you're good at it doesn't mean it'll be easy! PLus if there are no bumps along the way, you won't learn anything! As long as you glorify God and have faith in his plans for you, nothing can prevent you from doing anything.

We're expected to take up our cross, as we become a disciple of Christ. That means to be born again, to revolve this all around Him. Although talent is given by God, hard work also plays an important factor. That being said, we have to draw the line between our talents and passions. We need to have that initial relationship in order for us to accept His guidance. Sometimes what we're good at isn't what He wants, same with what we love doing. Only with a relationship, could we receive his thumbs up.
