The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?Ps 27:1
Don't miss out on the powerful impact you can make on the world by leaning into your relationship with the Lord. Keep reading the article to learn the practical steps you can take to prioritize living in alignment with His teachings and principles and allow His light to shine through you in everything you do.
As Autumn takes over and the days grow shorter, both morning and evening are consumed by darkness. Each day, when I wake up, I do my best to get ready quietly, in the dark, so as not to disturb my sleeping wife. Sometimes, I stumble out of the house with my shirt on inside out, backwards, or my hair a mess. It's not because I want to leave the house that way, but simply because I can't see clearly in the darkness.
In Psalm 27:1, the Lord is compared to the Psalmist's light. Just as the light of day illuminates the world and reveals its true details, the Lord's presence in our lives allows us to see the truth. He shines light on our sins and directs us towards eternal life. When we have a relationship with our Savior and understand right from wrong, nothing and no one can threaten us. The Lord is more powerful than anything in this world, and this understanding puts everything else into perspective.
With this understanding, we no longer need the approval of others. The power of our enemies, unfounded criticism, and office politics loses its effect on us. Our focus shifts from seeking validation from others to seeking approval from the Lord. This knowledge brings a sense of freedom and liberty, and our excitement about salvation becomes infectious.
So, what changes can we make in our daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly routine at work to lean into this understanding? We can start by seeking the Lord's guidance in our decisions and actions, relying on His wisdom instead of relying on human approval. We can prioritize living in alignment with His teachings and principles, allowing His light to shine through us in everything we do.
The impact of this understanding on those around us can be profound. Our colleagues and coworkers will witness a transformation in our attitude, confidence, and perspective. They will see a person who is secure in their beliefs and values, and who is unaffected by office dynamics and external pressures. This can create a ripple effect, inspiring others to also seek a closer relationship with the Lord and find the same liberation we have experienced.
Imagine how different your next meeting, negotiation, employee review, or interview would be if you approached it with God's worldview and the confidence that He is by your side. You would have a sense of peace and assurance that can only come from knowing that the ultimate authority is in control. Your actions and decisions would be driven by a higher purpose, and this would undoubtedly have a positive impact on the outcomes.
I pray that God makes the next steps clear for you and your work endeavors. May your team, customers, employees, and business be blessed as you lean into this understanding and allow the Lord's light to guide every aspect of your professional life.

When we embrace this understanding, we experience a sense of freedom and liberty that puts everything else into perspective. Seeking the Lord's guidance in our decisions and actions, and relying on His wisdom instead of seeking human approval, can lead to profound transformations in our attitude, confidence, and perspective.
