And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Phillippians 4:19
So my current duties are as follows: to seek God and listen, update the resume, post to job sites and fill out applications. God knows the way I take since he established it. So I will increase my time in the word and the path will become clearer.
Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. Psalm 119:105
But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, That shines brighter and brighter until the full day. Proverbs 4:18
The agency called me about another job, with the same type of duties, they wanted me to start immediately. It was about 11:00 am and they were pressing me to start that afternoon. I felt instantly uneasy. I questioned them about the duties and they remained vague. Only that it was working in a call center for a media company. When I hesitated the womans voice became hard. She stated since the other job ended I should be gung ho about this. I asked if I could decide later and let her know. She said they didn't have time for that the company needed someone today. I reiterated that I would like more adminstrative types of jobs. Something they said they would find for me. I went on to say I didn't want to give the impression I am not willing to work, but would like to do something that fits my skills. Shortly after we ended the call. I wondered about it for a while until I knew in my heart if I had taken the job it would have been an act of fear, not faith. Some might think that was a mistake, just take something until you find something else is the common thinking.
The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, But everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty. Proverbs 21:5
Every man's way is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts. Proverbs 21:2
In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:6
I am walking on this path armed with more wisdom than I previously had. Not skills but how to work humbly before God. I wasn't used to doing so poorly on a job. Experiencing that stripped away hidden pride and arrogance and I am the better for it.
God wants us to walk in excellence not self exaltation. Knowing at all times that our help comes from him. Learning not to believe the hype about yourself. Be careful when folks say...you deserve it or with your skills you can get any job. Give God the credit. I know everything I have is a direct result of God's favor and hand in my life.
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. James 1:17
But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment. I Timothy 6:6
