“NOT MY JOB!”

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 NIV

Read: Acts 9: 1-19

We all have met or work with someone who is determined to do only the very minimum of what is required of them. Some even will voice “That’s not my job!”, when asked to take on a required task. Some will stand by and watch you take on the extra work and still not offer to help you.

Saul of Tarsus (later to be called Paul) was like that to the nth degree. Not only did he reject the works of Christians, he worked with the Romans against them. He personally witnessed the stoning of Stephen and approved Stephen’s death by the crowd.

It was not long until on the road to Damascus that he met the spirit of JESUS. Saul was blinded for three days from the brightness of JESUS’ light. In days, Saul learned of his job; to spread the good news of JESUS to the gentiles. Saul became Paul and found his ‘new job’. What Paul had fought violently against, he found was his job.

What is your job? Don’t consider your occupation. What is the job GOD has given you? Are you telling GOD; “That’s not my job!”?

Instead of telling GOD “Not my job!”, ask HIM what job HE wants you to do. Think back over the last few week and months when presented with opportunities to help an organization or an individual. Did you say “Not my job!” and left it for others to do? You will be given more opportunities to do the job GOD wants you to do. You don’t need skills or special talents you don’t possess. GOD knows you are capable of more than you know.

Trust HIM. GOD has a special job for you!

Today’s Prayer: “Lord, Thank you for entrusting me to do the work YOU would have me do. Give me wisdom to see and understand all you have for me to do and the strength to do my job for YOU. Amen.”
