Colossians 3:17 "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."
Just where you stand in the conflict,
There is your place.
Just where you think you are useless,
Hide not your face.
God placed you there for a purpose,
Whate'er it be;
Think He has chosen you for it;
Gird on your armor! Be faithful
At toil or rest!
Whate'er it be, never doubting
God's way is best.
Out in the fight or on picket*,
Stand firm and true;
This is the work which your Master
Gives you to do.

(* Picket – A guard posted in front of an army to give notice of the approach of the enemy.)
Colossians 3: 23-24 "And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ."
Philippians 4:11-13 "Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
That place where you are – right now?
God put you there on purpose.
Look for Him. Stand for Him. Work for Him. Witness of Him…
Right where you are...for where YOU are, your God is also…as His Spirit dwells IN you.
You will find great joy and peace as you find Him in the middle of your everyday life; and you will begin to see His presence and sense His purpose all around you.
Do not believe the lie of the enemy that you are unimportant today!
Your position is vital to the victorious campaign of the Faithful God.
Do all that you do today…for Him.
