I hear this clearly. I can count on God. My strength comes straight from God. It is not of my doing. It is all about God. God is God. God is great. God is powerful and mighty.
Jesus is also clear that I will reap what I sow. I will be treated fairly. We all will. I will be repaid for what I do in life. Do I choose Jesus? I will benefit from that. Do I reject Jesus? I will not benefit from that. It is my choice.
God said this once and for all; how many times have I heard it repeated? “Strength comes straight from God.”
Love to you, Lord God! You pay a fair wage for a good day’s work! | Psalm 62:11-12
There is a principle of justice here. I should not expect anything from God if I reject Him. I’ve made my choice to live a life, now and in the hereafter, apart from Him. God will give to each person what they deserve, based on their deeds — and by extension, based on whether or not they repent and turn to God.

Leadership the Jesus: A Faith at work series — Looking how to focus your faith at work? | This series of leadership programs focuses on leadership skills that drive the purpose and passion for work as laid out by Jesus and based on sound scripture. We might see faith and work as estranged. It can be frustrating. But, in truth, faith and work should share a crucial aim: to see the unseen at work through the power of the Holy Spirit. Nothing new has been made without faith in God. Nothing unseen has been seen without work. When the force of what we do hits why we do it, we wither, or we flourish. Learn more here.
