Faith At Work Devotionals

Our Source of Knowledge

January 30, 2012

In verse three of his second letter, Peter reminds us of the simple fact that we have a divine calling and everything we need for a life of godliness has either already been given to us or will be made available when we need it. In other words, God has given us everything we need to live a holy and complete life. And how are we to do this?

How to Fight Evangelism Fatigue

January 26, 2012

Maintaining a high-energy evangelistic lifestyle isn't easy, is it? Sometimes our passion for personal outreach begins to flicker. Call it unspiritual. Call it sin. But let's be honest enough to call it what it undeniably is: very, very real. So what can we do about it? Here are some steps I take when these doldrums hit.

Lift Eyes, Look Up, Behold

January 24, 2012



“And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, … Read the rest

Trusting God

January 20, 2012

We can either love God and love others, or we can pursue things of which we have no control over. If we trust God with His given provisions for our lives, we can then love others and experience the peace … Read the rest

Check Your List

January 18, 2012

Love is our goal, right? Peter gives us a very clear map to being able to show such unselfish love as described in this passage. For me, showing love isn't always that easy or convenient. But when we go down Peter's list and do what he suggests, it is possible.

The Family of God

January 16, 2012

Being members of the family of God as well as the family of man has critical implications for those around us. God is working out his plan in and through us. He is in this thing with us. He's working with our free choices to bring forth his plans.

Teach Us To Pray

January 12, 2012

Many times in our churches we hear the call to prayer for this or that person or problem. We learn about the importance of prayer in our lives and in our development in Christ. We learn more about conversing with God on retreats, through one another, in books on the subject, but mainly through the practice of prayer. We have likely heard the good counsel that we should be praying not only for, but with our spouses, family members, friends and co-workers.

Start with Yourself!

November 15, 2010

I remember the day my youngest daughter suggested "family therapy." My immediate reaction was that my daughter was simply trying to deflect her issues on me instead of going through the hard work that she needed to do. How wrong I was! As we went through therapy together, I learned what Jesus so wisely taught: that you must first get healthy yourself in order to be any help to another.

Making It Possible

November 12, 2010

God tells us if we go about faith in small ways, our returns will be small. But if we go about faith in big ways the harvest will be huge - not only in our lives, but in the lives of others. But whatever you choose to invest whether it's your time, your heart, your resources, whatever, God calls you and me to do so with a cheerful heart. You choose to do it, because you want to, not because you have to!

I Pray For You

November 10, 2010

When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it.

Advantages of Adversity

November 9, 2010

Many of us in the business and professional world are accustomed to relying on a variety of resources: banks; key staff members; well-conceived goals; strategic plans; experience and expertise; personal finances. We pride ourselves at "pulling ourselves up by our own bootstraps." Yet at times we must concede even our best efforts - and all of the resources we can muster - are not enough to overcome the obstacles we confront. At times like these, I have often remembered Jesus' admonition: "Apart from Me, you can do nothing" (John 15:5).

Plus and Minus

October 28, 2010

The other day I was reviewing the past year. I wrote down a list of things that had occurred this year in my personal and business life. My mindset had been a bit of "what a tough year" and these are tough times at lots of levels. There have been difficulties!
