Uzziah sought God during the days of Zechariah, who taught him to fear God. And as long as the king sought guidance from the LORD, God gave him success. – 2 Chronicles 26:5 (NLT)
When you’re looking at a future career, it can be easy to just look at what looks the most exciting. Maybe you want to make lots of money, so you pursue a career that will bring you wealth. Or perhaps you go after a job that will get you into a fun or funky marketing company because you like the atmosphere. Lots of thought usually goes into your career decision.
One thing many teenagers forget to do, however, is to seek guidance from God. God wants you to have an awesome life, full of adventure following after Him. He has good things in store for you. This doesn’t mean that life is always going to be easy, but by following God’s plan, will help you feel more fulfilled.
So today, if you’re considering a career, seek the advice of others, look for things that seem fun and exciting, but ultimately, be open to God’s leading. God will show you what college to go to or what career to pursue that is right for you.
Be open to hear from Him and don’t be afraid to act on what you hear. He might ask you to do or go somewhere that might seem different than what you expected. Trust His leading. He’s not going to tell you to do something that will hurt you in the long run. Trust God and get His guidance when making decisions.
