Faith at Work – There is a Larger Reality

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, 
or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? 
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket,
or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance? (Isa 40:12)

God is intimately present in all of his creation; at all times including your workplace with his inexhaustible power and love, yet God is not limited by time and space. His wisdom is there for your asking. He knows every truth about His creation, even the ones that haven’t been discovered yet. God’s authority is ruling over everything that happens at your organization. God is ruling in accordance with his loving, unchanging, unsearchable wisdom which is deeper and richer than we will ever grasp. While there is constant change happening around you, there is no change in God’s being, his moral principles, his attributes, his purposes, his motives or his promises or his love for you.

Your work and all the associated deadlines, pressures, powers, stressors and systems exist do not change the fact that God created the heavens and the earth. This world is established, firm and secure because the Lord robed in majesty and armed with strength is in complete control and is exalted above all his creation. Every task you do at work takes place amongst the dust of the earth that the Creator has weighed in a basket. Your workplace exists between the boundaries of the waters that God held in the hollow of his hand, and the mountains and hills that God weighed on the scales. (Isa 40:12). The tools you use for your work were shaped from raw materials that God created. The principles that govern your work are principles that were established by God when he created the universe.

People’s expectations of you, their love and acceptance, their manipulations, their complements and complaints, their truths, half-truths and outright lies do not change the fact that God gave each of them breath and the skills and talents they have. God in his unsearchable wisdom knows what he is doing when he places people in authority and establishes their boundaries. God created the thrones, powers, and systems of this world, and holds the wealth of this world in his hands.The Lord robed in majesty and armed with strength is in control of every aspect of your workplace.  The power of God’s love will always triumph over the love of power.

God isn’t a department, machine or computer, but a reigning, reciprocating, righteous, living, loving Lord and Father who you can have a relationship with in your workplace.
