Today wonderful Father, I am thankful that my hands find work to do; at my job, home and other places you have by your grace given me the privilege to.
I am thankful for I am confident that the work of my hands will bear much fruit and the rewards will come back to me, also bringing glory to your name.
I am thankful because I know that there is profit in labour as you tell me in Proverbs 14:23 which reads "In all labor there is profit, but idle talk leads only to poverty." Therefore I know when I am busy working, my work and labour with bear profit and because I am not idle I will not dwell in poverty.
I am thankful that I am able to fulfil my purpose and walk in your will whilst I undertake the various types of work I have been privileged to find myself doing, which brings me immense joy.
I am thankful because your spirit of excellence teaches me daily, how to excel in the work my hands finds to do, bringing the reality of Proverbs 22:29 into my life, and I am thankful that as I excel in my work, by your grace, the results will being me before great men and woman in high places. It reads "Do you see a man diligent and skillful in his business? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men".
So today, dear Papa, I place my basket full of thanksgiving wrapped up in praise for the various types of work you have blessed me with; from my day job, to writing, coaching, volunteering and much more. I am thankful that every day you teach me how to apply the spirit of excellence in all I do, bringing honor to your name.
I am thankful because when I work diligently as working onto you, the results will bring me up to high places in Jesus name.
Papa, I pray my thanksgiving is beautiful and sweet smelling in thy sight. Be glorified in my thanksgiving and honored in my praises today, in Jesus name. Amen.
