Purpose - Up To Know Good on Thursday

Up To Know Good on Thursday

July 20, 2006

office building

I was surprised when my boss, Angie, told me that I was getting a promotion. I had been on leave from my job for a month due to personal issues, and at times I was still absent from work for hours at a time. Despite this, I was called into Angie’s office one afternoon and given a raise and a new position within the department. I wondered why this had happened, though I gladly accepted the offer.

Do Good - Look for God’s purpose in your small and large successes today. Ask Him to show you tangible ways to promote Him through your success.

I soon found out that Angie had seen something that she wanted to understand more - the peace I had in the midst of my stress. My promotion gave me several opportunities to talk with her and others in the department about the reality of God’s love during that dark time of my life.

“But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you My power and that My Name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” Exodus 9:16. Click here to read Exodus 9:13-19.

Jesus, help us to see Your purpose in our success. Help us to see where You are showing Your power and proclaiming Your Name through our circumstances.

Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.


I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
