It’s Not About You!

“All people will fear, they will proclaim the works of God and ponder what He has done.”  (Psalm 64:9, NIV)

Work. It’s what we do. It’s who we are. It’s what identifies us. If we’re out of work, our lives are a mess. If we don’t have the right kind of work, we’re frustrated. If we have too much work, other aspects of our lives suffer. We can’t live with it and we can’t live without it. Work and life go hand-in-hand.

God’s character is associated with work, too. He created heaven and earth. He continues to shape our lives every single day. He is in control of all things. Our lives, including our work, are under His authority and are part of His perfect plan. He is the One directing our circumstances. When you look at the various events in your life, you should be able to point to the things God has done and proclaim them to others. The emphasis of this verse is not about pondering the heavens and the earth as God’s creation. It’s about reflecting deeply on God’s presence in our lives. It’s about our life story written from God’s perspective. Ask yourself, “Can you see your work from God’s perspective? Can you proclaim the works of God in your life? Do you ponder the things He has done for you to make you a better person?”

Work really doesn’t define who we are after all, does it? Even our work is about Him! Proclaim His works to those who will listen! Enjoy your Friday, “Working for Christ”!
