Psalm 127:1,2 If it is not the Lord who builds a house, the builders are wasting their time. If it is not the Lord who watches over the city, the guards are wasting their time. It is a waste of time to get up early and stay up late, trying to make a living. The Lord provides for those he loves, even while they are sleeping.

We all know people with an unbalanced perspective on their working lives. We call them workaholics. Problem is, while we’re happy to use that label to describe others, we’re rarely prepared to apply it to ourselves.

Work is one of the most important things that we do in our lives. It brings dignity to who we are, it gives us the chance to use our God-given gifts and abilities, and of course, it puts food on the table. BUT … work, if we don’t set some boundaries around it, can end up robbing us of everything that we hold dear in life.

We live in a world these days of 24/7 connectivity. Have smartphone, will travel; and so through that wonderful marvel of modern technology, we’re effectively connected to everyone, everywhere, every day and every night.

Bosses these days are emailing their employees at 10:30 at night, on the weekends, and while they’re on holidays, expecting an immediate response.

Can I tell you, I receive enough email to keep me going eighteen hours a day, easy … no problems at all.

But at some point you have to draw the line. At some point you have to switch off work and onto people and family and relationships and rest. Besides, do you trust God to do the things that you can’t do, or not? Hmm?

Psalm 127:1,2 If it is not the Lord who builds a house, the builders are wasting their time. If it is not the Lord who watches over the city, the guards are wasting their time. It is a waste of time to get up early and stay up late, trying to make a living. The Lord provides for those he loves, even while they are sleeping.

Get a revelation: God is in control. Seriously.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
