Workplace Evangelism Pt 4

Psalm 5:12
For Thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt Thou compass him about as with a shield.

Now let's talk about the favor of God. As you begin to represent Christ on the job you are going to start recognizing God's favor manifesting more and more. Some people liken favor to influence. I'll take it!!! You will start noticing people taking notice of you. Supervisors, managers, team leaders etc...and it's not for you to get puffed in, it's for you to be able to share Jesus and His kingdom. One thing I can tell you is management has a great respect for people with integrity, people who work hard, and people who look out for others. You will begin to get opportunities not just to witness, but to advance in your career as well. Just be smart enough to know that it's not about YOU so much as it is about God putting you in places for His kingdom and yours.

Remember Joseph?Acts 7:10 and delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favor and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, who made him governor over Egypt and all his house. "Favor for the Future" that's what Joseph was walking in and whether we realize it we are too! I remember I was at work one day and the plant manager came to me and asked me if I was trained on something, I wasn't so I told him no. Right after that my Sup asked me if I wanted to be trained in that same area and I said YES! So I received the training, and the next time I saw the plant manager I told him I was trained. He got a big smile on his face and he started using me in that area as well as the other areas that my Sup had allowed me to be trained in. By the end of the year I had been able to touch people all over the plant with the good news of Jesus Christ from the assembly line workers on up to the CEO over the plant itself. I had doors opened to me because God knew He could trust me with His favor!Why? Because I knew the purpose of it was to advance His kingdom!!!

Finally I want to warn you about the "Hater Brigade." I know, we want to think that if we're doing everything right, if we're living hard for God and running this race with everything in us, everybody will just love them some US. WRONG!!! The more you press into the ways and will of God, here they come! Jesus already told us that we will be hated by men for His sake, so don't take it personally. Luke 21:17 It's really not you that they are hating it's the GOD IN YOU that's who they really despise. Remember this, 1 Peter 2:21
For even unto this were ye called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps, Bottom line we ARE going to suffer in this life and the sooner we make up in our minds that it's part of the Christian menu, the easier it will be to deal with. Whatever you do, don't let them stop you. Let them mock, ridicule, and act crazy. You hold steady, show Jesus,and keep winning the world while you walk in the FOG..Favor Of God.

Just a kind reminder, please feel free to submit your prayer requests for today.

An the lord said unto the servant,
Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel
them to come in, that my house may be filled.

Luke 14:23
