Your Walk And Your Work-A Christian’s View
A Christian’s faith influences all aspects of our daily life, including our career or professional life. The work-life we have chosen and how we go about it must go alongside our walk with God. The
World works on instant gratification and a sense of entitlement. Many Christians tend to forget to
look to God and The Word of God as our guiding light.
The Bible gives numerous examples of direction and goal setting that help us live faithful lives. Living a God-planned life requires much thought. The wild ecstasy that many associate with spirituality does not produce faithful living. Instead, a commitment to God that results from
understanding His Word creates the foundation and motivation for a God-honouring life. We must scrutinise our presumptions about God and about ourselves. Without them, the whole idea of God’s will for our lives is ridiculous. Numerous Scripture passages assure us of God’s concern for every facet of our lives, from the momentous to the trivial. For instance, He numbers our hairs (Matt. 10:30) and records our tears (Ps. 56:8) as well as our movements, thoughts, and life patterns (Ps. 139:2-6). This sparks joy in our hearts that God knows us on a personal level, and He has a plan for our lives. Living a
God-intended life is thrilling because He has a meaningful plan for our lives and communicates
with us so that we can know His plan. To better understand and follow God’s direction, let’s ask ourselves a few questions: Am I saved? It would be meaningless to ask God for leadership while still rebelling against His will concerning salvation.
A saved person knows that his relationship with God is correct and may confidently claim God’s promises for guidance. “Who then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose” (Ps. 25: 12) Am I obedient to God’s word? The attitude toward God and His Word is paramount, and our priorities reveal these attitudes. Indeed, the Bible does not contain a specific answer to each of the questions we may face, but we are mistaken if we use that truth as an excuse to neglect the Scripture. Am I Delighting in the Lord? Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart (Ps. 37:4). We are instructed to find our happiness in God. He will then assume the responsibility of granting all we need for life and godliness.
Have I Committed Myself to Do God’s Will? Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He will do it (Ps. 37:5). In committing to the Lord, we trust His ability and interest to accomplish what is best for our lives. What Do I Understand? Having trusted in the Lord and committed ourselves to His will, we must acknowledge His will and mold our minds and behaviour to understand His plan. Following this
will give us a clear picture of what God has in store for us and help us choose a vocation worthy of our calling. In whatever vocation we choose, always remember that we are ambassadors for Christ wherever we are. Constantly reflecting on our walk and work will make us worthy to stand before the throne of grace on the day of judgment.
