每週靈修探索 5/22

永不獨行

約翰福音 14:15-18

耶穌曾對門徒說,要求天父差派保惠師,永遠與他們同在(約 14:16)。 今天,當我們各自在職場上打拼,耶穌仍然對我們說這話。

請細心想一想。聖靈竟然是你的終極同路人。他隨時隨地願意聆聽,願意幫助你。公司有閒言閒語?暗箭橫飛?下周一會有新一輪裁員?公司能否奪得新合約?合併會順利進行嗎?我已經緊張得要死,還能起來推介新項目嗎?晚上老闆家裡的宴會,肯定充滿辦公室政治和陷阱,我能應付嗎?

現在就轉向你的終極同路人。他真的與你同行。他能聽見。他也願為你發聲。一位客戶服務代表接到電話,被對方不停謾罵。雖經過解釋及善後的承諾,客戶仍不肯罷休,服務代表只好在心中默默禱告。就這樣,謾罵突然停止。「整個氣氛完全改變了。是聖靈的工作。」

你真的無須再獨自背負工作上的重擔。趁著下個約會還沒開始,先跟你的「同路人」好好溝通。

本週功課:
在早上,午飯和下午三個時段,用2-3分鐘稍作安靜,感謝聖靈成為你的「職場同路人」。

禱告:
天父,求你讓我聽見賜智慧和啟示的聖靈,使我在職場的生命能彰顯你的能力和榮耀。奉耶穌的名,阿門。

Weekly Devotion 5/22

Never stand alone

John 14:15-18

“I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you,” (John 14:16, the Message). That’s what Jesus told the disciples as He prepared to leave. It’s what Jesus continues to tell each of us today as we work through our daily chores.

Let it sink in for a moment. The Holy Spirit is your ultimate Partner at work. He’s always ready to listen and help. Is there gossip in the back office? Do I feel the fiery darts flying around? Will Monday bring the next round of lay-offs? Are we getting the big contract? Is the merger proceeding? How am I going to do the presentation when I’m a nervous wreck? How will I get through this meeting with an angry client? How will I survive tonight’s party in my boss’s home with all the politics and landmines?

Turn to your Ultimate Partner @ Work. He walks with you. He hears you. He will speak for you. The story is told of a customer service agent with an angry client on the line. Despite an explanation and a promise of remedial action, the verbal abuse continued, while the rep silently prayed to be delivered. Almost unexpectedly, the ranting stopped. “The whole atmosphere changed,” she recalls. “It was the Holy Spirit.”

There’s no need to bear your daily burdens alone. In fact, make sure you speak with your Partner first as you walk into your next meeting.

This week:
According to your work schedule, take 2-3 minutes during your morning, lunch and afternoon break, calm down and thank the Holy Spirit for being your Partner at work.

Prayer:
Father, I ask to hear from the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that my life at work can be a clear demonstration of Your power and glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
