17 April 2018 – Doing it for the Glory of God

1 Corinthians 10:31 – So whether you eat, or drink, or whatever do, do it all to the glory of God.

Second day in my new company, and I am struggling. Not from the inability to do my job, but in the sense of questioning why am I here? it seems God has closed all the other doors except this, which has impacted me in a big way in the pay package, and with it, I struggle with the huge loss of income, the loss of sense of purpose, and while remember the Word of God in saying, that my attitude counts. A friend offered this job at his expense of inconvenience, and would I turn my back and betray his trust? I can’t do that. I am committed to make a difference, perhaps in the business, but also I see in this small team, I could best represent Christ. As Paul wrote imploring us, in 1 Corinthians 11:1 – Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. This is one of the hardest things I had to do, to die to self, to the worth I have placed myself in with the money, status etc, but be at a place God has led me here. There is no mistake in God’s sovereign hand in earth’s affairs, and certainly not in my life, and I can only trust. I pray everyday that I see His hand on me, that I may rest my faith in Him. I pray that I am contented with whatever I have, and my treasure is in Him, that I know Him and He loves me. May my struggle drives me closer to You God and that I can imitate Apostle Paul to work for my ministry and being now in the preaching team, may I trust Your Hand in my life, and that I may be found faithful in Your eyes O My God. May I be proved faithful before You.
