Encore - 1007- Increase Your Confidence in God Psalm 78:7• 5 min
Hey, it's Mike Henry with Follower of One, and today's devotional is a continuation a little bit of the previous episode. We're talking about Psalm 78. I want to read verses five through seven. We're talking about verse seven today. If you have questions, you can go back and catch the episode that I did on verses five and six. For he established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should teach them to their children, that the generation to come might know even the children yet to be born, that they may arise and tell them to their children, that they should put their confidence in God and not forget the works of God but keep his commandment. Verse seven says that they should put their confidence in God and not forget the works of God but keep his commandments. How do we put our confidence in God? We don't forget what he's done, both in what we've learned in the Bible and in our own lives. And we obey him, and we want to remind our children and remind them to remind their children. About these things of God, how he has done great things in our lives. And when we obey him, we get to see him work. We get to see what he's doing and the difference that he makes, and we get to experience the joy of following him. He's he gives us great joy when we obey him, and we see him accomplish cool things in our lives and in the lives of the people that we work with. I want to challenge us. To live with confidence in God, that confidence in God is what gives us the ability to be calm and to make a difference in the lives of the people that we work with confidence in God is what challenges us to pray for others. Appreciate them, know what we believe, serve others and speak for ourselves. That's our five daily activities with follower of one. We want to exercise those practices so that we can remain engaged with our faith on a daily basis, in the middle of our tasks. Even if things are crazy in your workplace today, you can be confident in God. You can remember what he has done and obey him. That confidence makes a difference in everything that you do at work. In the ways that you relate to your coworkers, and it also can make a difference in the lives of your children and your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren, and maybe even in the lives of the children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren of your coworkers and your peers. Imagine that for a moment, set a 150 or a 200-year goal for the reputation and for the difference that your life makes. You can do things today that can impact people for generations by simply being confident in God, remembering what he's done and keeping his commandments. And that's our tip for today. Our goal is to be confident in God, the way we do that is we don't forget the works of God and we keep his commandments. Let's find out how we can do that today. Let's challenge ourselves. Remember a Bible verse. Take a minute to get to work a little early and pray for the people that you're going to meet today, and then go out of your way to do something special for someone look for ways to serve others. Ask God to show you how you can make a difference in the lives of someone that you work with. You have an opportunity today to practice this confidence and make a difference for generations. Your life matters. The difference that you make in the lives of the people that you work with matters. And you do that through this confidence in God. Thanks for being a marketplace minister. Thank you for following Jesus and for making a difference in the lives of the people that you work with your actions matter, be confident in God. Don't forget what he's done in your life. And let's obey him today. Thanks very much.
