The Spirit's leading....at work.

When you are working, do you listen for the Holy Spirit's prompting?

Now, don't overreact to that statement. I'm not talking about words of knowledge and so on (but it might be). I am talking about the still small voice of God.

It might appear as that strange hunch that you should go and check that server, or revisit that code.

Now, admittedly I am effectively in a "full time ministry role", but a lot of what I do is technical, or web updates, or plain old admin stuff. Yet I find that God directs my day with small whispers (and sometimes loud bangs!). And sometimes I am distracted.

So now you might be saying, "But why would God be interested in my work?". Well, why wouldn't He? God gave us creation and told us to fill the earth and subdue it. (Gen 1:28). So we had work before the fall, but it became hard toil due to sin, (Gen 3:17-19). But we are not to be idle (2 Thess 3) but to work as if for the Lord (Col 3:23-24). So if we are serving Jesus, even as we work, will He not be interested in what we do, not just that we honour Him, but also in equipping us to do that work?
