Monday always comes doesn’t it?
Even after four days off over the Thanksgiving weekend, Monday came surprisingly fast.
What I like the best about the Mondays (and the whole work week for that matter) is that Jesus goes with me.
He’s already softened the hearts of those who might be difficult today.
He’s already loosed His presence and His peace into the organization I work for.
And He’s already sent angelic buffers to thwart any potential stresses that might arise.
How do I know all this?
Because I was up early this morning and asked Him to do all those things.
Too often we, as followers of Jesus Christ, settle for less than what He intends for us simply because we do not actively invite Him into our day.
Oh, Jesus is with us because His word says ‘He’s with us always, even to the end of the age’.
But there is a difference between being with us and being engaged in the minute details of our world.
If we want Jesus to truly affect our work life, we must invite Him into it and be willing to allow Him the freedom to operate as He pleases.
Sometimes this means keeping our mouth shut so He can work out a difficult situation or going the extra mile in service to our fellow employee.
In short, this means being willing to be an of example Christ’s teachings in every way.
So what work situation would you like Christ to get involved with today?
Tell Him all about it and then stand back and watch Him work.
It is one of the most exciting aspects of living every day with Jesus!
“That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.
Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob.
Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.” (Isaiah 41:20-22)
