“You're trying to speak to the nations, when you need to learn to speak to one!”
I am very career driven and have always been. I’ve had many different jobs in the field of education. And many, many times I’ve thought “God, what am I doing here?” Don’t you know I’m supposed to be preaching to the nations?” And many, many times I’ve heard the Lord say “You're trying to speak to the nations, when you need to learn to speak to one!”
In order to learn that, I had to learn to change my perspective, by Recognizing my assignment at the moment. We go to work everyday and that is our assignment. As Christians, we need to be ready to share what God has done in our lives and point our colleagues to Christ.
Then we'll be “the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden” in our workplaces (Matthew 5:14 (ESV).
