All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

My brother and sisters

 

Am in need of serious encouragement right now,i feel this storm is just not letting up.

I have been job-hunting for about a year now,im currently in a job where i have been demoted and taken advantage of.

I have prayed,fasted and sought God's guidance but he seems so far from me.

I went for an interview two weeks ago which seemed very promising but they have just called me now saying i didnt get the job.

 I know God is faithful but i feel i have done everything in my power to increase my faith,i have read the right scriptures,have prayed,fasted but God is not looking my way.

I have repented and forgave others who did me wrong,no clue what im doing wrong.

I dont know what to do now,dont know whether to stop looking and just let God sort it out but isnt that "Faith without works"?

I hope the Lord will lead me to the right answer,im clearly at the end of my rope.

 

Your help is appreciated.

Hi Ruel

 

Thanks for your perspective,i definitely have not been looking at it that way.

Ill keep that in mind,God always has a plan,i trust in Him completely.

He will lead me where He needs me to be.

Your Sister in Christ,

Hi Sharon!

 

With my exposure in financial literacy, I came now to the conclusion that job is a short term solution to a long term problem. I believe that God provides. But we also have to understand that the global economic landscape is changing. I do not mean to discourage you. I just want you to have a realistic view of the world. There is nothing wrong to pray and look for a job. But if I were you, as I am looking for job, I will also prepare myself for the global economic transition. Job security works in the Industrial World. But as financial experts say, we are now in the Information Age (some would say, Digital Age), and your best preparation is to invest time learning financial literacy. In the Information Age where we are in, some even call JOB as the Journey Of the Broke. The greatest freedom of course is our freedom in Christ, that is, freedom from sin. But would it be good also if such freedom will manifest in the total aspect of our lives as children of God?
