Seeing God’s Glory

Not sure where this came from, but I pass it on to you. Notice … God’s glory can be found in the workplace!

“Then Moses said, ‘Now show me YOUR glory.’  And the Lord said, ‘I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence….’ ”  (Exodus 33:18-19 NIV)

Moses was talking to GOD and said, “GOD, show me YOUR glory.” GOD responded by saying, in effect, “Okay, Moses. I’ll show it to you, but you can’t see MY face. The way you’ll know that I’ve been here is that you will see MY goodness.” Whenever something good happens, large or small, GOD is saying, “That’s a sign of MY presence.” If you’re seeing goodness in your life, you’re seeing GOD. You’re seeing a sign of HIS presence. I’m convinced that we see GOD at work all day long, but many times we don’t recognize it.   Today, be on the lookout for GOD’s goodness. Thank HIM and praise HIM for the little things as well as the big things. As you acknowledge HIS goodness, you’ll see HIM more clearly and know HIS love in ways you never have before. (Author Unknown)

Our Support System

Do you at times feel alone in your work culture? God designed the body of Christ to provide us with a support system. This is a living connection with other Christian brothers and sisters, one that is necessary for our growth and support (1 Corinthians 12:18-25). We experience this connection at our local church meetings, but this should continue even after we leave church. This connection is more than a meeting … it is living identity we can share with all who profess Christ. Over the years we have seen how people find strength and encouragement in their workplace because they have intentionally connected with one or a few Christians for prayer and mutual support. Interestingly, we have also noted that together they have more of a visible influence and witness to the people around them. Do you know other Christians in your work culture?  If you haven’t already, begin to experience God’s way of providing support, wisdom and strength at the workplace. (PMC)  Consider: “But practicing the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Christ, who is the head. From Him the whole body grows, fitted and held together through every supporting ligament. As each one does its part, the body builds itself up in love.” (Ephesians 4:15-16 NET)

Tapping Into God’s Provision

In the business world, resources are assets that we draw upon in order to function effectively. God has provided resources that are absolutely necessary for us to function effectively in the workplace. First is the provision of the Holy Spirit, who enables us to live life in a way that is impossible with our own natural resources. Next is the Word of God that gives us truth to guide our minds and will and gives us a proper perspective in the way we look at ourselves and our world. Then there is prayer, our point of access to God, 24/7, where we declare our dependence on Him by taking our requests to Him throughout the day. Lastly, there is the resource of a connected body of people that allow us to find support, focus, and encouragement, as we identify with other Christians in our workplace. How are you utilizing God’s resources in your workplace? PMC   Consider: “My God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

.In our FCAP “On the Job…God’s Way” Seminar, we talk about how to accomplish this important principle… and much more.  Also available are our monthly IN THE JETSTREAM and the opportunity to participate in our monthly Phone Prayer Conference on the second Tuesday of each month.  Information for all these is found on this home page of our web site.

First FCAP Seminar in Spanish

First FCAP Seminar in Spanish

After many years of praying for outreach throughout Latin America, FCAP has experienced our first “On the Job…God’s Way” Seminar in the Spanish language.  At the invitation of the pastor of his church in Colombia, South America, Diego (our contact in Latin America) facilitated the seminar with 85 in attendance.  We give thanks to the Lord for bringing this to pass.  We thank Diego, his church, and all who served as God’s vessels in this exciting outreach.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Need for Compassion

The people we work around need something more from us, as Christians, than just our opinion of them. We tend to look at people who oppose us, or who act very differently than us, and form an attitude toward them by the way we think of them. God instructs us not to dwell on their behavior, as wrong as it may be, but to seize the opportunity to pray for them … and when an occasion is presented, show them the kindness God has shown us. (PMC)   Consider: “When He (Jesus) saw the crowds, He had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest’ (Matthew 9:36-38).

Walking with God

Being out of fellowship with God in the workplace doesn’t necessarily mean you are stealing from the company or treating people wrongly.  It could also mean that you just don’t walk with God there because you don’t think He is interested in the details of what is happening in your workplace. If you feel this way about God there, then you probably won’t be praying to Him about what is going on around you. And if you don’t approach God at all, then you won’t experience fellowship with God there. Interestingly, God describes our relationship with Him as a walk. Walking is the most basic thing we do as humans on a regular basis. God asks us to walk with Him. How is your walk with God in the workplace? (PMC)  Consider: “Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, so walk in Him.” (Colossians 2:6)
