Practice Jesus’ Presence In Your Career

May 31, 2011

Practicing God’s presence is not just for your home life, church and family, practicing God’s presence should be extended to your career.  As we have stated the ability to make good decisions, and good influence over people can only happen when God is making the decisions through you.

Think about it for a second.  How often do you make the wrong decision, how often do you offend the people around you when you lean on your own understanding?  When you spend time in the presence of the Lord you gain His understanding, His knowledge and His wisdom.  Your wrong decisions turn out always to be right, your relationships with people are greatly improved.  People look at it as things that you touch turning to gold or having unexplained blessings.  I call it being in the presence of the Lord.

When you practice His presence you move up the ladder.  You become more successful, you close more deals, you gain better connections and your respected more.  This happens because when you are in charge you are flawed, but the more the presence of the Lord is in your life, the decisions and relationships become perfect because He is guiding your way.

It doesn’t matter if you are at the top or the bottom.  God is on your side to bless and make you a success.  This only applies to morally upright professions.  It is impossible for God to be in a situation or bless it if the profession is outside His will.

Can people be successful in business without God?  Yes, it is called worldly success and that success is very limited and fleeting.  Success with God and His presence is not only financial success but it is respect, peace, joy and it is everlasting.  When God is in your career not only are you a success in the world’s eyes but you do things directed by Him that gives you things money can’t buy; respect, wisdom, peace and joy to name a few.

Depend on God in your career to direct and prosper you.  His way is never wrong or short-sighted!

For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.   —   Psalm 5:12

Whatever vocation you are in, you can experience the presence of Jesus and His unmerited favor, and He will make you a success!
