• The Fitting Job For You Devotional

    Genesis 2:15

    Even if we find ourselves in jobs that would not be our first choice, we can find joy in our work as we seek to serve God in them. In all that we do, we are not serving merely ourselves or our employers; rather, we are also serving the Lord. In fact, we are serving Him first and foremost. No matter what we do, we should do it as unto God, for we will receive from Him a great reward (Col. 3:22-25). View Resource

  • God’s Will and Your Vocation Devotional

    Romans 12:1–8

    It is a good for us to engage in critical self-assessment throughout our lives. Even if we have been in a particular job for a long time, the demands of the job and our interests can change to the point where we may no longer be a good fit for it. At that point, it may be time to consider another vocation. Self-assessment also helps us do our current work better. The more we know our gifts and desires, the better we can work with our coworkers to produce the best product or service possible. View Resource

  • God’s Will, Hidden and Revealed Devotional

    Deuteronomy 29:29

    Though we should be appropriately concerned about making the right decisions and the potential consequences of all of our choices, it is pointless for us to worry excessively about where we will be in the future. We cannot know God’s hidden will that has decreed the future, so fretting about it is a waste of time. We simply need to consider what we know is pleasing to the Lord. If we please Him today, we have done all that He requires of us. View Resource

  • The External Call Devotional

    Acts 6:1–7

    Sometimes the external call to a particular vocation comes before a man or woman receives an internal call. If several individuals are noticing particular gifts in you or are suggesting that you pursue a certain line of work, it is worth taking their advice seriously and considering whether they might be right even if you have not yet felt an internal call. There is wisdom in a multitude of wise counselors (Prov. 15:22). View Resource

  • The Internal Call Devotional

    1 Corinthians 9:16b

    Paul said, “Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” (1 Cor. 9:16b). He had an unquenchable desire to preach the gospel, as God had called Him to the vocation of pastor, church planter, and Apostle, granting him the desire for such work. We may not have such a desire to preach. Ours might be “Woe to me if I do not teach kindergarten!” or “Woe to me if I do not open a restaurant!” Whatever the case may be, a strong desire for a particular work often indicates that work is for us.

  • Looking for God’s Will Devotional

    1 Thessalonians 4:3–8

    If we are fretting about God’s will for us in a particular situation and one of the options available is ungodly, we may fret no longer. We are never allowed to disobey our Creator’s revealed standards, and if one of our options would require us to do that, we must immediately choose otherwise. The Lord’s will for us is our sanctification, so we must study Scripture diligently in order to know His will and to understand what the holiness He demands looks like. View Resource
