Defining Purpose: ASK for God’s guidance

Relationship Comes First

A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .

 

You know, sometimes we can be so frustrated with our work, everything from surviving relentless demands to finding the perfect position, that we can forget to put work into context.

 

My friend, God didn’t create us to live for work.  He created us to live with Him, in a close and candid relationship.

 

If you’ve lost motivation in a job, or perhaps even lost your job entirely, that doesn’t mean you’ve lost your identity or your calling.

 

Remember the wise counsel of Romans 11:29 . . . “For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable.”

 

Your identity comes from relationship with Christ, and your calling at work is progressively revealed through that relationship.  Jobs come and go.  Careers rise and fall.  But our God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

 

Reflection:

 

  1. Are you placing your relationship with God at the top of your “project list”?

 

  1. Are you struggling to have a strong sense of identity because something’s gone wrong for you at work?  Deep in your heart, do you have a peace that the only identity that ultimately matters for you is your identity in Christ?

 

Prayer: 

 

Dear Lord, in the midst of striving to “move ahead” at work, we sometimes forget that You’ve already moved us ahead to the best place of all – to an eternal relationship with You.  Please help us find peace through spiritual identity in Christ, regardless of how things are going at work.
