Three Verses for Your Career

The Bible is the bestselling book of all time. Billions have been printed or downloaded, and read. It is a God-inspired classic and every word of it is true.

The Bible contains over 31,000 verses, and if I had to choose only three for you to apply to your career they would be the following:

Genesis 2:15, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.”

God created us, the work we do, and the world in which we perform it.

3 Bible Verses for Your CareerHe ordained us to “work” and to take an active role in the use and development of His created order. We are designed to be fulfilled when we are working, i.e. active, productive, and creative. The Garden of Eden was never a place of idleness.

God still owns it all and we “take care of it” on His behalf. We guard, watch over, and manage the things God sends our way. We serve God with our daily labors while remaining obedient to Him.

Your everyday work is a high calling from God. Even Jesus Christ, God Incarnate, picked-up tools and made things. He worked as an example for you to follow.

Romans 8:28, 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.”

Trials are inevitable. They are part of living and working in our fallen world. But, you will never face your trials alone. God promises to work “good” out of “all things” and this includes every trial you will ever experience.

You may not foresee how any good can possibly come from a particular job situation, but God guarantees He can bring good from it – somehow, somewhere, sometime.

This guarantee from God only applies to “those who love him” and that is you, the Christian. Your love for God is the fruit of your salvation in Jesus Christ.

You have been “called according to his purpose,” and He is sovereign over every aspect of your career, the good and the bad. God’s plans productive and perfect. He is always for you and never against you.

1 Corinthians 10:31, “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

How do you know if you are successful in life if you don’t know the purpose of your life?

Success in the workplace is meaningful and important. But, what about success across the full spectrum of life including family, friends, and community – your well-being, values, and relationship with God? Is someone still successful if they are excelling at work yet failing God and others? What’s the standard?

The good news is God defines what is or is not a successful way to live your life, and this is what He is telling us in this verse: “whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

God calls you to glorify Him in “whatever” you do. No matter what is going in your life – in the good times and the bad, in times of joy or trial, in wealth or in need – “do it all for the glory of God.”

The truly successful person knows God, obeys God, and glorifies Him in every realm of life.

Work hard, put in the hours, and achieve success in your career, but in the process don’t turn your back on God, others, or the rest of His creation.

Finally, Psalm 119:105 declares “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”

Bringing God to work is the best career decision you will ever make
