Trusting God to guide our careers

"Something I've asked myself time and again is whether I'm willing to recognize God as the biggest influence on my career."

In Today's Business world, it's tempting to look at a degree from a particular university, a supportive network of friends and contacts, or just plain luck as somehow playing a role in the development of our careers. But something I've asked myself time and again is whether I'm willing to recognize God as the biggest influence on my career. Sound a little risky? It depends, really, on how we perceive God.

The Bible portrays God as the all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving Father-Mother of the universe. His creation is made up of ideas that are never separate from Him, the one Mind. This would mean, then, that God is governing every step of His children. He always knows what's best for His idea; His plan for His creation is good. No other power—not an unreasonable boss, a dire financial predicament, nor a dead-end job—can stand in the way of the execution of His plan. If this is what we understand about God, then trusting our careers to His keeping is anything but risky.
