Imagine a world where you see God EVERYWHERE you go! When you go to the store, you see God. At the barber shop or hair salon, God is there. Even at the doctor’s office you see God! My God, this would be an AWESOME world; and today I’ve come to tell you that it is POSSIBLE! Matthew 5:16 (New King James Version) instructs us saying, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” If we all stand up and use our gifts, whatever they may be, to let God’s LIGHT and LOVE shine through us then we will indeed see God EVERYWHERE!
You see every gift is not singing, dancing, playing a musical instrument, or excelling at sports. Some people know how to greet others really well. Some people can style hair like nobody’s business. Others can decorate homes, cook, sew clothes, write, clean, and teach really well and with such style! So I encourage you today, whatever your gift or daily job may be, do what you do with a touch of God in it!
If you work at Walmart, greet people with a warm friendly smile and show them the gentleness and kindness of the Lord. We never know what people may be going through and a friendly cashier at Walmart can make a BIG difference on a day when someone has already gone through so much. Then if you cut or style hair, make your clients look and FEEL good. Even use that time as an opportunity to minister the Word of God to someone if you can, instead of engaging them in the usual gossiping conversations.
Literally whatever you do, do it in such a way that when people look at you they will know you are a Child of God! If we ALL do this, we will see God EVERYWHERE. At the stores, at the restaurants, at the business offices, at your child’s daycare; literally EVERYWHERE we would see God!
This would be nice huh?!….Think About It!
