The other day, I noticed something that was quite funny to me.  A security guard was sitting in a chair under a shade tree sleeping.

Yes, sleeping on the job, right in broad daylight. It was obvious that he had been asleep for some time. His head was all the way back on the chair and his mouth was wide open.

Apparently, he was not worried about his job because the next week when I passed by, he was sitting in the same position asleep. All he had to do was clock in, pull up a chair, and go to sleep.

With God, sometimes all we have to do is just show up at a place. Take Saul for example; Samuel, a Judge and Prophet, told him that he would meet a band of prophets coming from the place of worship. They will be playing a harp, tambourine, flute, and lyre. Not only that, they would be prophesying. When he hears them, the Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon him and he too would start prophesying. While he was prophesying, Samuel told him that God would supernaturally change him into a different person (1 Samuel 10).

With God, we never have to worry about keeping our jobs as Kingdom employees. All we have to do is show up to work and let Him work in us.

This Week’s Scripture

Psalm 121:5

The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
