When we are mindful of what a holy and wondrous privilege it is to do what He's entrusted us to do, it will change the way we work, lead, live, create, think.
WHATEVER you've been entrusted by God to do, I hope you’ll see it as an honorable and noble thing… something beautiful, wonderful, and purposeful for your good and others, and for His glory.
Ask God to show you why He’s put certain gifts/talents/skills in your hands and how He wants you to use them in this season. There’s more eternal purpose and Kingdom impact in your hands than you might realize. Steward it well, stay humble, stay in step with Him, and you’ll be amazed at how He uses you.
If this resonates with you, here's a prayer to put in your own words:
God, thank you for the privilege of getting to do what You have entrusted me to do. Help me to never take it for granted, or ever try to do this apart from Your Spirit helping and leading me. Help me to remember You have called, qualified, and anointed me to do this work. Help me to stay humble, obedient, thankful, and grounded in You.
Help me to work diligently, efficiently, wisely, productively, and lovingly... mindful of the task, the responsibility, the people, the purpose, the mission, and the reason I'm doing what I’m doing. Help me to lay down things that distract me from being focused and disciplined. Help me to not shrink back in fear or intimidation, but to move onward and forward in faith.
Cause me to remember I am here to serve others, not to serve myself or my own interests. Create in me a pure heart toward others, that I would believe the best in people first, not last. Give me a guileless heart that is innocent before You and man.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight. Let all I do in word, deed, action, thought, use of my time, resources… let it be honoring to You.
Help me to always remember it’s a privilege to do what You have entrusted me to do.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Much love, my friends.
