Your Position Is a Result Of Your Actions

Your Position Is a Result of Your Actions
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 2, by Os Hillman

"Even a child is known by his actions, by whether his conduct is pure and right" (Prov 20:11).

In the marketplace companies and products are known by their position in the industry they represent. Lexus and Mercedes hold the top position among luxury automobiles. They are known for their high quality. Nike is a sports merchandise company known for its products serving those who play sports and they own the number one position in their industry. Coca-Cola is a soft drink company that currently has the number one position in the world among soft drinks. Companies spend millions trying to gain the number one position.

You also are called to achieve a certain position in what and how you do it. Your position is often a result of your actions taken over several years. Usually when your name is mentioned, your position is revealed. It is the most distinguishing attribute of your life and work and people associate you with your perceived position.

In the workplace you are known more by what you do and what you achieve. Your reputation is often built either around productivity or the lack of it. Years of productivity in an industry can allow you to own the number one position in your industry.

Do your actions line up with the position God desires for your life? Are you modeling the fruits of the Holy Spirit in all aspects of your life? Paul prayed that "you would live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God?"( Col 1:10-11). Paul desired that we all have a position of a person who bares fruit from our knowledge of God.

May each of us strive to have an excellent position for the benefit of the Kingdom.

Today's Prayer

Dear God, People can be so mean to one another through their thoughtless words. It has happened to me...and at times I may have caused pain on others through words I've uttered. Please help me to think before I speak. I pray that I will always think of others and their needs, their hurts, their circumstances, even their personalities in the way I speak and respond. I pray that every brother and sister in Christ would speak words of encouragement, exhortation, and the truth in love. If there is a need for confrontation, may it be through following biblical principles that the name of Jesus be lifted up and that you will be glorified through it all. May I never be rude or uncaring and may I never say words that leave that impression. Thank you for helping me and for blessing me. In the name of Jesus I come to you. Amen.

Great idea for todays post. I think people need to remember who they are and go back to ethical and moral convictions while still working in this world today.

Too many people conform to their work environment and make snap decisions that go against their character.

Please email me at as I have a favor to ask you.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
