Satan tricked Adam and Eve in the place of blessing God placed them and caused them to blow their blessing. You may not like your job but God has placed you there, in a place of blessing because you have bills to pay, your family needs insurance and you need that paycheck. More importantly - to serve HIS purposes.
Remember how when you didn't have a job, how miserable you were and you were asking friends and church members to pray that God bless you with a job?
Now sometime later, because of a bad supervisor or boss, people who don't like you, you are detesting God's blessing.
Don't let the devil, through people who don't like you, scheme against you and lie on you. Don't let Satan cause you to do what he caused Adam and Eve to do - doubt God, believe you know better and blow your blessing.
Turn on an uplifting sermon or some praise music, throw on some headphones and throw yourself into your work.
Somebody somewhere is praying for the same job you have. Gratitude is a wonderful thing.
Think of all the things you have that you couldn't have before because of that job. Your kids (if you have them) can pay for their lunch. You can pay the light bill, car note, mortgage or rent, water bill, the blessings from that one blessing are astounding.
Be grateful and work not unto people, but unto God.
The One who heard your prayers and opened that door will open an even bigger one when He sees how grateful we are for the little one.
