Daily Bible Verse on being a good employee

Daily Devotion and Bible Verse – Zechariah 4:6

Teen Devotion and Bible verse

So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty. – Zechariah 4:6

God never designed us to do things independently of Him. He designed us to know Him and out of that relationship, accomplish great things with His strength working in and through us.

That’s what today’s Bible verse is saying. Zerubbabel was challenged not to fight a normal battle but to fight trusting God. He believed God that He would work on their behalf in a powerful, supernatural way.

God wants the same for us. Instead of us just jumping out and accomplishing things in our own strength, God wants us to get Him involved in your situation. He has a better way to accomplish what you need. And when God is on your side, it’s better than what you could accomplish alone.

[Tweet “With God on your side, you can accomplish more than you could on your own – @studentdevos”]

This doesn’t mean that we sit and do nothing, simply waiting on God to move us to try something. Rather, what it means is that when we do step out, we are listening to Him and His direction. That means that when He speaks to us or gives us an idea, we follow it no matter how weird it might seem in the natural.

It’s when we do this that we see God move mightily on our behalf. So regardless of the battle, you face today, be encouraged, you’re not fighting it alone. If you’re willing God will fight for you!

Daily Bible Verse and Devotional – Proverbs 10:26

Daily Bible Verse and Devotional on not being lazy employee

Lazy people irritate their employers, like vinegar to the teeth or smoke in the eyes. – Proverbs 10:26 (NLT)

Do you want to stand out and get promoted at your job? Then do what this verse says, be diligent and a hard worker. When others are standing around talking, find some work to do. When you come across a new problem, instead of complaining about it, come up with a solution and run it by your boss. Offer to help in areas that are beyond your immediate duties.

Let’s face it, most of us are naturally lazy and would rather just do the least that is expected. However, this verse says that being lazy just irritates your boss and makes life harder for them.

Be a blessing by going over and beyond in your work. Don’t just do it for a day, a week or a month. It takes several months to really make it a new habit and for others to notice. Choose to apply this simple truth to your life and see results.
