POWER IN THE WORKPLACE!

“I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.”  (John 3:11, NIV)

The power of God often comes in unusual ways. He often sets up scenarios that seem to be negative at first, but then He orchestrates them for His glory.

  • Without Pharaoh’s pursuit of Israel at the Red Sea, there is no miraculous deliverance. (Exodus 14)
  • Without Lazarus’s death, there is no rising to life. (John 11)
  • Without Goliath, there is no underdog story. (1 Samuel 17)
  • Without Peter stepping out of the boat, there is no miracle on the water. (Matthew 14:22-34, NIV)
  • Without Judas’ betrayal, there is no resurrection. (Matthew 26:14-16, NIV)

When was the last time God did something in your life that can only be explained as coming from God? Was it yesterday? Was it just last week? A month ago? A year ago?

The converts in the early Church changed the world they lived in because of the things they saw and heard. It was the power of the Gospel that changed lives, not what they learned merely from teaching. This power drew people to Christ. Things happened that could not be explained – except as activity from God.

Although many of us live wholesome, moral lives, the people we associate with do not see our lifestyle as being any different from their own. Consequently, they are not drawn to us or to Christ. God’s power within us is not clear to them.

When we trust the Lord and make Him the center of our lives, we see the activity of God around us as never before. As our trust and faith increase, those around us begin to see it as well. As their faith begins to grow, they often draw closer to us trying to investigate the things that make us different. Thus, God’s power in us becomes clear to them.

God wants to show Himself in ways that you and I cannot imagine. Take a risk! Put your trust in Him this Friday and let Him demonstrate His power in your workplace.

  7. I was very self-conscious with my lanky frame
    and the thought of joi. Popular designs for back tattoos are tribal, dragons, wing,
    animals, cross and angel. 2- Ask your Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels to help you stop the attack
    and for protection, even if you do not know them or believe in them, asking them is enough, your faith is not required for them to do their
    work, although it helps.
