“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10
The purpose of service is so God can reach others through our hands. In II Cor. 9:12-13, the Bible says that the service we provide not only meets needs but expresses thanks to God and leads others to praise God. The fact remains that when we serve others or provide solutions to alleviate distressing conditions, we are actually serving God, and He will reward us bountifully (Colossians 3:23-24)
I am aware that some of you have been looking for jobs without success. Yes, this is the time to redirect your spirit to work best for you. How? Pledge to uplift humanity or serve the glory of God when you get a job. Also, endeavour to keep to your promise! Your promise to God in this respect opens the way to success in your aspiration, career or job hunt.
Further to the above, the scripture says, “Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.” (Proverbs 11:25) Therefore, as you serve the need of others, so God will fix your needs.
The word of God today wants us to bless others through the work of our hands. If you have worked for a long time without making any progress, ask yourself, “In what way have I helped others in the course of my work? Or better still, ask yourself, “How much help or gift have I given to others from the gains of my employment”?
Furthermore, I want you to realise that our move to the top is accelerated when we serve God and humanity together in our chosen careers. We tend to retain wealth and make it last from one generation to the other when we glorify God in the foundation of the work of our hands (2 Corinthians 9:7-9)
Choosing the best career, therefore, is not by selecting an easy job, so to say, but rather, we ought to make our job “Christ-centered, which enable us to serve the glory of God through serving others.” If this is your aspiration, God will guide you. Seek him supremely in these ways, and let your heart be your guide.
AMEN. Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I commit my vocation into your hands today, and I declare that all that I do henceforth shall be of the most excellent service to humanity, all to the glory of God. Lord, sanctify all my endeavours and aspirations and let them yield good fruits onto me and onto my generations, AMEN.
