Do You Experience God While You Work?

If you experience God on the job, you'll enjoy it so much more. (Photo by David Siglin on Unsplash)

"I know God when I'm fixing things." —Paul, a Canadian auto mechanic

What if you could really experience God in your work? We mean, while you do your work. In speaking with pastor and author John Van Sloten the other day, he said when we feel delight in doing our job in the moment, that IS God. When we are creating, doing work that brings us joy with our unique giftedness, we are experiencing God.

How about you? When's the last time you enjoyed your daily work? What if you prayed today and asked God to attune you to Him in your work? To pray that you would experience Him and His delight as you enjoy your work, in doing it with excellence, as unto Him?

Isn't this what we were created for? The Westminster Catechism says it best: "Man's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever."
