We Wait He Works

belief in God

There is nothing that God won’t do for you. He loves you enough that He died for you. He bled and suffered unimaginable torture for you out of His love for you. Have you ever thought that your plans for your life weren’t going the way you wanted them to? Are you ever frustrated by that fact? It can happen at any time and anywhere, but it is nothing too be too ashamed of. Everyone has ad times like that.

No One Can Stop God

No matter how run down you may feel in your path of life, God will get you to be where He wants you to be. It is all in His timing, though. No person can stop our God. Don’t be discouraged by what’s not fair. Don’t be as discouraged by what is wrong with the world. Rather, ask God for guidance as to how you can help be the change that is needed in the world.

Ask Him how you can be a change and a light towards him in these dark times. Don’t be too discouraged or angry when those changes for good and for his glory don’t happen overnight. Sometimes it is not supposed to happen like that.  God sees what’s happening. He knows exactly what will happen and when it is supposed to happen.  Keep being your best. That is all anyone can ever ask of you. If you know in your heart that you tried your best at anything and you are at peace within yourself based on the job you’ve done, you know you’ve done all you can and that you have done the right thing.

Honor God in All You Do

Keep honoring Him. Keep praising Him for all the great things He has given you and praise Him for the things He has done in your life. Keep doing your best. That is all He asks is that you try.  You’re not working unto people; you’re working unto God.

Whenever you are struggling to find meaning or fun in your work, remember that you aren’t just working for yourself or trying to make a living for your family. You aren’t just doing work just because it is required of you. You are working for God. If you change your mindset, you can go farther than if you grumble about the things that you are asked to do all of the time.

That Nudge to Complain

Sometimes, it can feel like the best thing in the world to complain about your job or any aspect of your life. Everyone has projects and tasks that they don’t want to do. The important thing is to be able to do them as if you’re doing it for Him anyhow. If you don’t let the little things get to you as much, you will have an easier time at work. You can do your job while not really worrying about everyone else.  If you do things in your life for Him and keep your focus on Him. He will bless you a lot more. You will elevate stress in your life a lot more as well.

It’s All in His Timing

When it’s your time to be promoted, you can rest assured that you will be promoted. When it is your time to get another job, he will allow you to get another one. His plans are better than you can possibly fathom. Don’t give up on your goals in life because God has never once given up on you. Just because people may tell you that you can’t or shouldn’t do something, doesn’t mean you have to listen to them. You can turn your attention towards God and ask Him for guidance as to what you should do.

No one Can Stop God and His Plan

People can’t stop you; bad breaks can’t stop you; injustice can’t stop you, bad health doesn’t even have to stop you in your life. The commanded blessing on your life will override any force that’s trying to hold you back. It doesn’t really matter what other people think of you or what they even say to you or even what they do to you. What matters is how you react to it.

You can either lash out in anger or be the grown up and walk away from it. As good as it may feel to lash out, it is never the correct option.  God can help you to be calm instead of hurting others. Remember nothing and no one can stop what God has planned for your life. You are the only one who can stop yourself, but even you can’t stop God’s plan for your life.
