Finding your joy in the Lord's path
October 27, 2010
The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand.
If you had all the money you needed, would you still work? I saw a recent study that said 65% of Americans would continue with their current job even if they had enough money to live comfortably for the rest of their lives.
You know, there are some people who love their job more than anything in the world. But I also know other men and women who would honestly jump at the chance to quit their current job if they were given enough money to live comfortably. The truth is that God wants you to have balance. You shouldn't set your job up as an idol, nor should you be bitter about it!
The point of this Scripture is that God has you where you are for a reason if you are delighting in him. But if you attempt to find your full joy in the things of the world, you are going to be disappointed. As you delight yourself in the Lord and allow him to guide your steps in all you do, God will bless you with contentment in all aspects of life… including your job!
Don't define yourself by what you do for a living. Instead, delight yourself in the Lord and trust in him for your provision and contentment.
TRUST IN GOD FOR YOUR WELL-BEING AND SEEK FULFILLMENT IN HIM!
MY GIFT TO YOU!
