Finding God at Work

Updated: 3 days ago

May 14, 2024

Read: Luke 5:1-11

Your work is a platform for engaging the supernatural. Many times, we find ourselves in jobs we do not like, and we act disgruntled. We do not show dedication to the work that helps to make ends meet. At some point, we get too comfortable with the mediocre - not learning, not growing.


However, God is always present in the place of work because He uses our businesses, our jobs to give an opportunity to express the blessings He has placed in us. The skills and knowledge that God has given us is to be utilized in our place of legitimate work regardless of how we feel towards the job. 


In Ephesians 6:7-8, we are asked to “serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free." The focus is to serve God through our work, recognizing that ultimately, our efforts are directed towards Him and not the physical. Your work ethic should reveal that you are a Christian. Your relationship with your colleagues should influence them positively and lead them to take their jobs and their connection with God seriously.  

God is always present in the place of work because He uses our businesses, our jobs to give an opportunity to express the blessings He has placed in us.

In Luke Chapter 5, Levi, a disciple of Jesus was called in the place of work. Luke 5:27 (NIV) reads: After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector by the name of Levi sitting at his tax booth. “Follow me,” Jesus said to him, and Levi got up, left everything and followed him.” We see here that Levi was at the tax booth—the equivalent of his office. Or in other words, at his job. Samuel was also called in the place of work. So were Moses, David, Elisha, Andrew, James, John - all called in the place of work.  


Are you diligent in your place of work to encounter God? Even if you don't have a job or are not working for an income right now, you can attract God by being diligent in whatever it is you are engaged in. Whether it be your studies, your home, or your service in church or the community. Diligence must be your watchword because those that do business in deep waters encounter God - Psalm 107: 23-24.  


Never look down on your work because your engagement with God is tied to the dedication you put into working. 


As we work, may we experience provision of abundance and the manifestation of the supernatural in Jesus’ name, Amen. 


Song of Worship  

  Lord, lift me up and let me stand - 1x 

By faith, on Heaven's tableland - 1x 

A higher plane than I have found - 1x 

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground. - 1x 


Prayer - Dear Lord, Thank you for your mercies, grace and kindness. Thank you for providing the skills and knowledge to do the work you have provided for me. Father Lord, I commit my work into your hands, and I pray that your plans in my life are established in Jesus’ name, Amen.
