Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus

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

Have you ever struggled with career choices?  I sure have.  Consider these wise words, from Isaiah 48:17 . . . “This is what the Lord says – your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: ‘I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.’”

 

This scripture is speaking of obedience.  God is the teacher, and we are the students.  He knows what is best for us; He shares that with us, and we need to follow His instruction.

 

Obedience alone tells us that this is the right thing to do.  But God also offers a promise in our obedience.  Isaiah 48:18 cuts right to the chase . . . “if only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”

 

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from God -- there is no greater marketplace trainer anywhere in the universe!

Reflection:

 

  1. Are there areas of your work life where you are not being obedient to God’s teaching?  How can you make improvements here?

 

  1. What disciplines are you following to stay connected to scripture as a resource for your career choices?

 

Prayer: 

 

Dear Lord, we often forget to celebrate the fruits of discipline in our lives.  Yet we know that in staying true to Your commands in life, we move our careers forward in the right direction.  Lord, help us find the strength of will to do work Your way.

 

At work on Your purposes - Amen

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.

 

At work on Your purposes - Amen
