God Wants You To Bless Your World

God Wants You To

Bless Your World

 


“Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth”

(Ephesians 4:28).


         God wants you to bless your world! That’s the reason He wants you to work with your hands, not because you’ll go hungry if you don’t. Jesus said: “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” (Matthew 6:26). If the birds and beasts don’t work and yet never go hungry, because God takes care of them, how much more will He take care of you, His peculiar treasure! God can take care of you. He however wants you to work so you can contribute to the development of your world.


           As a child of God, you should never be idle. Even if you don’t have a job yet, find something you’re good at; something that’s good for God and good for people, and start doing it. Don’t let this month go by without you doing something. Find a need, and reach out to meet it. It doesn’t matter how menial you might think your present job or assignment is, do it with dignity and excellence. Don’t be ashamed of what you do, and never look down on yourself. Remember, you’re a child of God, and through you, the blessing comes on whatever you’re involved in.

                                                                                                                                                       The Bible tells us that through a slave named Joseph, the blessing came on Potiphar’s house (Genesis 39:5). No matter what you do, let it be done excellently and for the betterment of your world. Become committed to making the world around you a better place. Let those around you feel your impact; let them be happy that God brought you their way. Your job is your door to the world; your opportunity to express yourself and the perfections God has deposited within you.


         Psalms 139:14 says you’re “…fearfully and wonderfully made….” That means you’re one of a kind; a creation of complexity and wonder, not easily explained; that’s what you are. There’s so much within you that the world can benefit from. That’s why you have to make up your mind to be the best of you; for God wants to bless the world through you.

Prayer


Dear Father, I recognize my vocation and skills as avenues you’ve created for me to bless my world. Thank you for increased grace and ability to positively impact my world as I live gloriously for you, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
