Defining Purpose: SUBMIT to God’s direction

The Spirit Speaks

A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .


It’s the Holy Spirit that often knocks on our hearts and heads, helping us to understand God’s will for our lives, inside and outside of work.


What an underutilized resource is the Holy Spirit!  We Christians are often more influenced by the call of our culture than the call of our God.


First Corinthians 2:12 reminds us that . . . “We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.”


Once we embrace that gift, we can forge forward with it.  At work, we can press on with an anointed calling straight from our ultimate Boss. 


Things may look far different from our plans or expectations; but if it’s from God, it will be one of the contributions for which we were created.




  1. Have you spent time considering the significance, and the role, of the Holy Spirit in your life?


  1. How are you spending time with yourself, to better connect with the Spirit alive and at work in you?




Dear Lord, in the Holy Spirit, You have granted us a gift that we often overlook.  Help us to appreciate Your work in us, through Your Spirit, and in pursuit of Your kingdom.
