Somebody sent me a note this morning…
‘Dear Malia, I am a born again Christian. I have a good job. I am usually good in my office, hard working, patient and faithful. My boss is a good person. I know that I walk in the favor of God. recently I made a mistake in the papers… I am worried about the reaction of my boss… I need encouragement… Thank you…’
This is my answer to her:
‘Dear… thank God that you are a child of God. This is the most important thing to describe yourself. Things, people and jobs come and go but salvation is eternal. The. Bible promises that if you are a child of God, obedient and faithful to God, then peculiar blessings shall follow you (Deut 28:1-14). For example, God promised to bless the works of your hands! This blessing is from heaven! It is not from your boss! Just try your best in that office. The rest leave it to God. When you make mistakes, remember that you are not perfect, that you are human. Also, pray that God will turn your mistake into a testimony! God can do that! God wants to do that! So you see, there is no need to live your life in fear or have regrets. All things work together for good for the children of God! Never forget that!
