Devotional: It’s just hard work…

For January 10, 2014

He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding. The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit. (Proverbs 12:11, 12)

There is no get rich quick scheme.
There is no magic pill you can take to become successful.
Work is not a four letter word.
God made the world with work as a blessing, not a curse. Just see Genesis where God gives work to Adam before the curse of sin.

Our God is a God who provides. One of the way He provides for us is by giving us the ability and opportunity to work.

So if you’re getting weary know this- Your job is a blessing, not a curse. Go out tomorrow and put yourself entirely into what you are doing no matter what it is. Work hard and worship God by doing it as unto Him.

Heavenly Father, Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity and the ability to work. Help me to remember that I don’t work for me…I work for You. I love you. Amen.
