Who Do You Work For?
“And may the Lord our God show us his approval
and make our efforts successful.
Yes, make our efforts successful!”
In all that you do remember that you work for God and not for others. We can alleviate the stress and burden of pleasing others by living to please God. With friends and family, there will always be times when our efforts do not meet their expectations. During these times, it is important not to allow ourselves to feel burdened or overwhelmed. The scripture (Psalm 90:17) above states that God will make your efforts successful. When you work to make your efforts pleasing to God, He will make sure they are recognized and he will make them successful. Even in times when you are unable to meet the expectations of others, you will receive approval from God by doing your best.
As we begin a new week, try to keep this principle in mind in all that you do. When you pull up to work, arrive with the mindset that you are working for God. Arrive on time, arrive with a pleasant attitude, do your best, ask God to bless your work, and have confidence in yourself and in your work. When you do things like this, God promises to show you his approval and to make your efforts successful.
Have a wonderful week!
