Job Security
Week of February 1, 2009

            When God calls us into new assignments, insecurity and fear often try to rise up in an attempt to prevent us from stepping into our mission, let alone completing the assignment.  The Bible has no shortage of characters who struggled with fear. 

            Consider Joshua, David, Gideon, Elisha and Abraham, who desperately needed God’s help to carry out divinely-appointed missions that were bigger than they.

            Job assignments are no different.

            After six weeks of praying, seeking and receiving prayer from others, God blessed me with a new job.  I was hired on the spot at a level above what I expected and at a company that is literally bursting at their physical seams with exponential growth.  Yes, even amid the currently U.S. economic crisis, God sees the job openings and can direct us to them if we ask.  Thank you, Jesus!

            At first, I found myself overwhelmed with new material.  But I knew God had assigned me there.  After all, He had given me several confirmations.  So I had to stand upon His truth and trust Him to know that He had prepared me for such a time as this and that He would continue to equip me as I journeyed.

             I soon realized that the company God had brought me to was indeed a Kingdom company, in that the owners are Christian, they operate their business according to Kingdom principles and they invite employees to openly pray and share Jesus.

            By the end of my first week, I had made a new friend, who shares my love for Jesus.  And she agreed to come in early with me and intercede for our training class, our instructors and the company.  I found the presence of God in our classroom to be uniquely powerful in a way I had never experienced.

            God also impressed upon my heart to stand before my class of men and women and invite them to submit specific prayer requests.  And so I did.

            At that moment, the atmosphere in the room shifted.  People’s hearts were touched.  A few women sighed and smiled.  And within minutes, little notes with handwritten prayer requests were passed forward.

            No matter what our circumstances, we can trust God with job security if we ask and seek.  He has wonderful blessings and promotions in store for us.  And we will always need Him when we step into them, not only for ourselves but for others who await His love and blessing.

            What do you need today?

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love.
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.
