Look Up!

“The Lord will keep you from all harm – He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.(Psalm 121:7-8, NIV)

Daily pressures, deadlines, boredom, difficult people, and an impossible boss – sometimes we are faced with all of these problems at once. Unfortunately, it only takes one of these things to ruin a perfectly good day or to completely discourage us at work.

Oftentimes, when we face painful events, hurtful people, setbacks or anything negative, we are tempted to process those in a way that will discourage us or lead us into despair. Always, but especially in these situations, it is critical that we keep our focus on the truth. The truth is that there is someone (Jesus Christ) who defines us, not our circumstances. It’s not the things that are going on around us, but it’s who we are in Christ that is the defining reality of our lives! We simply need to remind ourselves that there is a Kingdom among us, and that Kingdom is what gives meaning to our lives. Our place in this Kingdom, the one in which God rules, is the ultimate and permanent reality. Our place in this Kingdom is what defines us!

When things get tough at work and you feel discouraged, look up. You are living in, and working for, God’s Kingdom! There is absolutely no reason to look down.

Enjoy your Wednesday, “Working for Christ”!
