Psalms 128:1 says that “Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in His ways. For you will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.”
As I travel and give speeches and presentations, it is not unusual to have someone say to me something like “Ray, all that religious and Bible stuff may work for you, but I really don’t believe any of it.” Well I can certainly respect their perspective. And I understand that not everyone believes as I do, but I do have a couple thoughts that I like to share with them in response. You know I have never met anyone who is truly living out their faith and following biblical standards who is miserable in their life.
Now this holds true in both the personal and professional level.
This does not mean that someone following God and the Bible won’t have challenges and tough times- we all do. But God does promise that if we will walk in His ways, and follow His standards, we will be blessed.
Well how about you?
Are you seeking and working to follow God and do the things that the Bible teaches? You see God promises that you will be blessed and prosperous if you do. Now this does not necessarily mean that you will gain a lot of money or financial wealth. You see God is not an ATM machine. But it does mean that if you conduct your business and personal life in biblical ways, you will have peace and contentment in your life- knowing you’re living as God wants you to.
Now I would like to encourage you to spend time reading the Bible- learn what it has to say about following God’s ways.
Now apply those biblical principles and standards, at home, at work, and in all areas of your life.
For when you do this- you will be applying The Truth@Work.
