Day #37 – 02/06/18

Idol #37 – Idol of “Our Careers”

Idol #37 – Lord we repent for putting our careers over our families and most of all, over you. If you have asked us to give up our careers to follow you and we do NOT, then it is an IDOL to us. Lord forgive us for disobedience. Sometimes we will put our career above our family and work too much and neglect our families. It has harmed many families when people work themselves to death and never enjoy the families that God has given them. God wants the families to be whole.

Some people put their whole identities in the career. They like being known as lawyer, doctor, professor etc. however, if they were to lose that career, then they have no identity. Let our identity be in Christ. Not our career.

Sometimes we pour ourselves into our careers to avoid family responsibilities or other obligations in our lives. Sometimes we work for more money and it’s a continual death trap. I want more material things so I’ll work to death and neglect the very things that means the most to have “nice things” versus giving up the extra money to spend TIME with our families. God knows the matter of the hearts and Lord we ask that you examine our motives.

On their deathbeds people are not asking for MORE CAREER OR MONEY. They’re asking for God and family. Help us Lord to get our priorities in order.

Heal the Body of Christ so that they will OBEY YOU above all things! To OBEY is better than SACRIFICE!
