God of the Mundane

by | Feb 6, 2014 | Devotionals

Lord, I can’t believe how fast flies by sometimes. The sad part is that so much time is spent on things that won’t really matter in the long run. Nearly everything I do for the pursuit of money or a clean house or even to eat seems so futile. Yet, your Word says that “whether I eat or drink or whatever I do, I should do it all for the glory of God” (1 Cor. 10:31). That tells me that I don’t have to be spinning my wheels, and that even in mundane things, I can live to glorify You. Yet it seems so difficult sometimes. I know its all about my mindset—that I need to set my mind on things above, but it seems like things above whisper while things below scream for attention. You truly do speak in the still, small voice, and it requires getting quiet to hear it. Help me hear You now. Quiet my scattered mind, and speak.

Those who wait on Me will find new strength, so take the time to wait. I stand ready to empower you, and to help you make the most of your time. Walk with Me as you perform the mundane tasks life requires. You will find joy and peace in my presence in spite of what you are doing. If it is cleaning, then use it as time to pray for others or to praise and worship me. If it is working, then let me show you how to love the ones in front of you. Use it to let me teach you how to live in reverence to Me, rather than worrying about what people think. All of these activities can be used for my kingdom as you seek Me first. Begin the day with Me, and then walk with Me. Do not begin with Me, and then charge out the door. I care about every detail, and I stand ready to strengthen and empower you. Let’s go.
