“Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.” (1 Chronicles 29:12)
Do you have any wealth. By any global standard if you live in the West you are wealthy. Do you receive any honour, do some look up to you? Have you been exalted, given authority over others, a leadership role? All this has come from God, He has chosen you and gifted you with these things. With these gifts and blessings comes responsibility. Will we choose to use what we have for Him?
You can always do what God is asking you to do at work. You may think that it will impact your influence, wealth, or promotion prospects. But God says it is He who exalts. So do it God’s way and let Him work out the consequences. You will be glad you did.
Quick Prayer. “Lord you are the bringer of wealth and honour, it is you who exalts.” Amen
