Is Your Job a Mismatch for Your Gifts?
God does not expect you to glorify Him with gifts you don't have. But He does expect you to glorify Him with gifts you do have.
To fulfill God's will for your life, you need work that expresses what God made you to be. If you're in a job that is not using the talents, gifts, abilities, and interests that God gave you, you may want to pray about whether or not you're in a mismatched job.
This is a serious problem, and it's a spiritual issue. It is far more important than you may think it is -- because God has given you your gifts, talents, and abilities, and one day He's going to say, "What did you do with them?" And do you want to say, "Well, I spent my life at a job that didn't use them."
Get into whatever God made you to be. The first step you need to take is some self-appraisal. You need to ask yourself, "What did God make me to be? During this appraisal, you may even discover that you are in the very job God wants you to be, and you can develop a new attitude about your work.
Pray about this - Are you in a job that doesn't match who God made you to be, or are you exactly where God wants you to be?
