"Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank."--Proverbs 22:29(NLT)
Are you a hard worker? Do you have a strong work ethic? Are you trust-worthy, reliable, and dependable? Are you endeavoring to perfect your craft? Do you demonstrate integrity? Does it seem that you work harder than those around you? Are you doing your job and the job of five others? Are you the one your boss, manager, or supervisor can call on in a pinch? Are you good at what you do, yet your skill and efforts seem to go unnoticed, taken for granted, or taken advantage of?
Well, here is a guarantee from God--keep doing what you are doing and in his time, you will be brought before kings. Just as Joseph in Genesis 37-41 moved from being a slave, to a prisoner, to being appointed as the lord and ruler over all of Egypt by Pharaoh! God sees all. He is monitoring our hearts, our attitudes, and our disposition. Even if you feel that you are being underappreciated--let God handle that. Keep doing your thing and watch the promise of God (Proverbs 22:29) be manifested in your life!
Father, I thank you have graced me to be skilled in my work. I thank you for the gifts and talents that you have deposited in me. I pray that as people see my work that they would glorify you (Matthew 5:16)! I thank you according for the promise of Proverbs 22:29. In Jesus' name, Amen.
When the promise is fulfilled, please call me or send me an e-mail; I would love to hear about it and rejoice with you!
