3-December     Choose Your Future

Luke 10:9-11    “Heal the sick, and tell them, ‘The Kingdom of God is near you now.’ But if a town refuses to welcome you, go out into its streets and say,  ‘We wipe even the dust of your town from our feet to show that we have abandoned you to your fate. And know this—the Kingdom of God is near!’” 

You might have been a great worker but you still lost your job. It hurts when you feel unappreciated or devalued, doesn’t it? Well, isn’t that what the disciples experienced? Imagine going from town to town to proclaim the best news ever — “the Kingdom of God is near” and it’s available to everyone. And many would not receive their message. You know the feeling, don’t you?

Most likely you’re having a hard time getting people to see your worth, understand your value, or receive what you have to offer. So take the advice offered here. Just wipe the job search dust from your feet and move on. You’re on a mission for God. He has something wonderful in mind for you. Keep your attention on that.

• I work for God and He has something great in mind for me.
• By faith I trust in the leading of the Holy Spirit and I release the past.
• I bless every place that I have worked and I look forward to being a blessing in my next job.
