“Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.” Proverbs 22:29 NIV
A lot of people have desire to serve before kings and eventually become the king in their industry. The word “industry” here is applicable to everything we love to do or that we are involved with on a daily basis; career, vocation, school, calling, business, sports… How often do we make plans or set goals to get better in our industry? Naomi Osaka a 20-year-old defeated Serena Williams in the US Open just this weekend because she’s skilled in her industry. Naomi did not let her age become a factor. She trained and worked diligently to get to where she’s at today. You and I can stand before kings and eventually become kings in whatever we are involved with if we see it, believe it and make calculated moves to get better skilled. You are perhaps one online training away from your promotion; go for it and don’t let fear stop you. Disregard all the excuses and the reasons why you think you can’t do it and do it. There is a crown waiting for you!
“Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.” Psalm 126:6 NIV
Father give me the courage and boldness to take the necessary steps to get better skilled today. I know that the journey is not easy, it will require somethings to die, it will take some financial risk, time and me giving up some things but I know that there is great joy ahead. Holy Spirit I need you today because your word says, “I can do all things through Christ that gives me STRENGTH” Amen!
