Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the LORD, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the LORD Christ you are serving.
In assuming this perspective, it is extremely difficult to wallow in misery. If you are wallowing, it is only because you have chosen to do so. No matter our situations: no matter how financially strapped you are, or how dysfunctional your family is, or how much you loathe your job, or a thousand other problems we could wallow in, GOD is whom we should be working for!
When GOD is at the center of what you are doing, rest assured God is doing wonderous things within you and for you. When you strive to please God in every decision, in every daily action, you will find Him, and in Him all of the love, joy and fulfillment your soul will ever need. It will no longer matter if you are low on cash, because you will be spiritually rich! You will be infinitely blessed beyond measure to know your Heavenly reward is waiting: eternal life with God in Heaven! It will no longer matter that your family is falling apart, for you are a part of God's family, which is all the family you will ever need. It will no longer matter that your job stinks, because working for God, there is only open opportunity.
There are endless opportunities for God to work in your life, for both His good will and for your own benefit. Open your heart to Him today. Begin serving LORD Jesus today, and let Him take you to places you could never imagine.
