Words Of Encouragement
Losing a job can be a stressful time in our lives.
So, what does one do immediately following the new status of “unemployed?” You can either waller in pity and allow satan to take hold of your heart by convincing you of the very worst, or you can give your anxiety to God and place your ultimate trust in Him.
If you are looking for a new job or career path, the same applies.
We should never begin a job search or career change without first asking God about it.
Living within His will for our lives prevents us from falling into sin or walking right into a storm.
Have you ever barreled into making a major change in your life without consulting God first?
He desires to help us by giving us wisdom and guidance, which light the path we should take.
When we lack wisdom, we rely on our extremely limited thinking to make choices.
What happens is we end up walking blindly down a dark path. We meander at turns, unsure which to take, and before we know it, our lives are a mess.
This principle applies to your job.
You accept a job with the uncertainty that it’s what God wants for you.
You find that you are unhappy with your work environment, your employer, and yourself. You are not your best, and something keeps nagging at you that there is something better out there for you.
God can either gain your attention through this nagging voice or something much more powerful such as getting fired or laid off.
Why not allow God to direct you to that perfect job where you will grow and blossom?
Imagine working somewhere He plants you and the joy you will experience.
You love the work you do, you have a wonderful boss, and your coworkers are absolutely awesome to work with!
So, think before you act in your job search or your career change.
Place your trust in Him to find that ideal job for you.
He is waiting; all you have to do is ask!
Prayer For Employment
Please forgive me for not placing my trust and reliance on you for my employment. I have failed by trying to control things.
My trust has been in myself and others when it should have been in you, only Lord.
I give myself, and my employment search to you, Father, and ask that you find me the job you desire me to have.
I give up control and place it in your hands.
I trust that you will plant me in a place that I can not only grow in my career but where I can also serve you.
May the work of my hands and my mind glorify you and no one else.
Please help me to be patient in my search, and I pray for your provision during this time. Bathe my heart in peace.
Thank you, Lord.
I pray these things in Jesus’ name – amen.
Prayer For A Job
I am saying a prayer for employment.
You know my every need, and you know just how deeply I want this.
I pray that you would provide me with the opportunity for a great job: a fulfilling job that supports me and family and allows me to prosper.
I believe what your word says in Philippians 4:19
“But my God shall supply all my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”
Help me to be patient as I wait for that opportunity to come along, and meet my financial needs in the meantime.
I trust you, Father.
It is in your Son’s name that I pray,
