It was stated by Chin-Ning Chu, a Chinese American business consultant "Without the strength to endure the crisis, one will not see the opportunity within. It is within the process of endurance that opportunity reveals itself".
What I have learned in this world is this: A successful career should not be your goal in this life, God created us with much more. Our goal in life should be a successful deployment of our abilities and gifts. Now what is it that I mean deployment and employment. I have learned that a job means "Just Over Broke". Is this where you are? As a Kingdom Citizen in right standing, your employment--your job--the place where you earn a paycheck--gives you an opportunity to serve and to use the gift God has given you in the context of a corporate group. Now when someone employs you, what they are actually doing is using your time to help build their business or project. In return, they pay you a fraction of what you are worth, but not even what they think your time is worth. Because if they did, they would first ask you.
Now deployment is the giving of your natural gift to the world around you. When you get deployed as a Kingdom Citizen, you can be sure that the results of your labor will have eternal significance. Your work matters, and the fruit of your work remains. Read what the king stated: " Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." ~~John 15:4-5
Obey God's Word.
