Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. He was teaching in their synagogues, and everyone praised him. (Luke 4:14-15)
Many experience problems in the workplace. Perhaps a coworker is disrespectful or climbing the corporate ladder at your expense. Instead of quitting, ask the Holy Spirit to go to work with you. With the power of the Spirit with a humble attitude, everything changes.
But change takes time. During the first year of Jesus’ ministry, Jesus performs miracles (changing water into wine) and tells of God’s grace (Samaritan woman at the well). All of the Gospels, except Matthew’s, skip the first year of his ministry. It wasn’t until the second year that people’s hearts changed. The Spirit enabled his messages to be heartfelt as news about him spread and everyone praised him.
Dearest God, send your Holy Spirit into our workplaces and into our homes so we can have your power. Then, use us, Lord, to glorify you.
