I am a Christian, however, sometimes when at work, I want to say and do things Un-Christ Like. I don’t always stop and have that WWJD moment. And unfortunately, not all of us can work in a perfect work environment where you have no stress. If you are in that perfect environment, please … raise your hand.
I do find that my days are much calmer when I start off meditating on the Word. But in my reality, I just do not get up early enough for that. So I find myself often skipping out on that moment to speak with God. There isn’t much room for self-reflection either.
When work stresses hit, I do find the best thing to do is take a moment, even if you have to go to the restroom to do so. Just be by yourself and concentrate on the promises and blessings God has in store for you.
Now I’m not going to go into a sermon here, no.. Not at all! But I do want to give you some great verse’s to meditate on. Just saying them three to four times in your head is not going to work either.
The Bible says to
Speak those Things
… so speak them into existence. God SAID let there be light. So it’s time we say what we need and want into existence.
Read through these Bible versus and see what really triggers that ummmpp in you. I’ll start it off with my favorite verse actually.
Psalm 75:7 But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another.
This is one I think we all need. Are you looking for a promotion because you 100% deserve it? Don’t try to act tough, don’t get upset at another co-worker who seems to be kissing everyone’s butt to get that role, and don’t stoop to any sneaky levels to make another person look bad.
Stop looking towards your supervisor to give you that promotion. God is your promoter. So do your best and know that He’ll give you that promotion.
Below are 14 Bible verses you need to get to know.
