Ecclesiastes 2:26 (NLT)
God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him.

King Solomon was reflecting on work, all the effort it takes to create wealth, and the fruit of his work. He realized that the pleasure of working, and everything it brings, comes from the hand of God. Otherwise, working, work itself, and the fruit of it are all worthless without or apart from God.

When we obey God's Word and His direction to our lives, we are in His will. This pleases Him. The Bible tells us God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please Him.

My desire is for you, as a working woman, to have a purpose in your work. Don't just work because you need the money. Don't treat your job just like work that produces a paycheck. Think of it as something purposeful; do it as unto the Lord and for others. You can find purpose in any job when you look at the big picture and know why God placed you there and work as unto Him.

Ask God to reveal to you why He placed you in the workplace you are. Ask Him to give you a purpose and to help you have an attitude of gratitude toward Him. Thank Him for your job and do it cheerfully. Ecclesiastes 3:13 (NLT) says "people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God."
