A Job From God


It Is Written, Psalm 127:1, unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it;  unless the Lord guards the city the watchman stays awake in vain.
As you have probably figured out from this Psalm, in order to be blessed in our labors, we need the guidance of the Lord.  You may be wondering how you get that guidance.  Let's take a brief look at a good way to do it.
Most Christians at one time or another, stressed over what God's will was and how to follow it.  While this is a good idea, it can cause a lot of grief for you.
We mistakenly think that we will figure it all out.  Sometimes we get an idea that we think is from God, and we jump into it.  We think we are following the "step out in faith" idea.  Maybe it was from God, but the timing was wrong, so we fail.  How do you really know what and when.
This is not a hopeless situation, as many people have found out.  Before you start any project, tell God you are ready and willing to follow His lead. Thank Him for using you.  Keep thanking Him every day and listen for His voice.  When the proper time comes, doors will open.  If you have peace in your heart, go through those doors trusting in Him.  If it is from God you will be successful doing His will.  If He wants you to stop at a certain point, the door will close, but you'll be where God wants you to be.
The important thing is to follow the will of God to wherever it leads you. Keep your self out of it is much as possible.  You may be tempted to stray from the course or to continue when you should stop, or to get started too early in the first place, but the best advice you can get is don't do it.  Put it all in the Lord's hands, and you will have peace in your heart, and success beyond your imagination.  Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
