God’s strategy of providing opportunities for His people in their workplace can be much different from how the world promotes opportunity. The world wants to put on a big show of status and power. It portrays people who seem to have the upper hand and are the movers and shakers of grand events and happenings. In contrast, God makes opportunities, at times, by placing His people in situations where they feel weak and vulnerable, and where it looks as though they are victims of circumstances. And it may even seem as those who oppose them look to have the upper hand. But it is here when God shows up, where He strengthens His people in the inner person, and where they show their faith and confidence in His greater resources. Remember, God’s way of showing up through you in the workplace may mean He is making a path for you where there doesn’t seem to be one. (PMC) Consider: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. Thus says the Lord who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, I will make a new way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:2,6,19).
