Welcome to another episode of our daily bible study; titled; why you should not overwork yourself. Do you know that being a workaholic does not guarantee more success? Keep reading.
Before we delve into today’s discussion, let us have a brief review of the previous episode. In the previous episode of our daily bible study, titled, how to get a divine assistance to achieve your life goals. We learned that, to get a divine assistance to achieve any goal in life, we have to note the following;
1; understand that, it is God that gives one the power to achieve anything.
2; understand that, we have to go out and work to make a living.
3; understand that, when we receive blessings from God, we should use them to serve and honor him.
From the previous episode, we learned that, when God told the Israelites He was going to send them manna, He said; I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions.
This passage made it clear that God is the one that will send the manna, but the children of Israel will be the ones to go out and collect them, and the children of Israel will be tested with the manna, to know if they will honor God with it. These correlates with the itemized points above.
Knowing these and acting accordingly, one is assured divine assistance. God is always ready to assist us. We only need to work in line with His rules and ordinances.
If you have not watched that episode, it is in the playlist, you can watch it after watching today’s episode.
In today’s episode, we will discuss the topic that says; why you should not overwork yourself.
Most of us think that the way to make more money is by doing more work. We fail to understand that it is what God determines you will have that you will have. No matter how much effort you commit to your job, as long as you are putting effort, what you will get is what you are destined to get.
The of book exodus chapter 16 verse 17 and 18 says, the Israelites did as they were told; some gathered much, and some little. And when they measured it by the omer, the one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little. Everyone had gathered just as they needed.
If we take this message to heart, we will stop overworking ourselves, for the sake of earning more. All that we need to do, is to put all necessary effort that we can, do not put effort believing that, it is the amount of effort you put in that will yield you more success. After all is said and done, it is what God has destined for us that we will get, so, stop overworking yourself.
Stop trying to work more than any other person so as to earn more, instead, work very hard, so as to put in all the necessary effort required.
Always understand that what is due to you will always get to you if you work hard. what you really need is what God will provide for you.
When you see some people having more than enough, God actually made them very rich for a purpose and mission, that mission and purpose is not for you to accomplish, hence, do not envy them. Work hard, put in all the necessary effort and God will provide you all you need to thrive in life.
May God provide our needs, that we may not lack anything we need, any time any day. Amen.
