I just had a really funny thought.
What if praying about the future looked like a job interview.
“You see, Lord, I have a 4.0 GPA, I was ambassador president my senior year, and I have two years of blogging experience.”
(The Lord is sitting at his desk and begins reviewing the immaculate resume you just handed him.)
“Audra, I do believe that your qualifications will be just right for the job.”
(He goes to his computer and after a few mouse clicks begins printing off some information for your new job.)
Here’s the cool thing:
I do not believe that this scenario is far from the truth. The Father knows each and every one of his children very intimately.
Oh! Don’t forget that He is omnipotent and omnipresent as well.
When you are living in the center of God’s will, He is already moving on your behalf.
Who better to help you get a job?
I realize that there are a lot of people who are unemployed right now. In fact, this sounds all well and good IF you’re the one who has so many opportunities available and not the one sitting at home wondering how the bills will be paid. The last statement expresses how the majority of the world views faith—this includes Christians too.
I cannot speak for anyone but myself; however, I have heard many a testimony about how the Lord has opened up employment opportunities for his children. I want to trust that I am a part of God’s economy—not the world’s—and that means that all of my needs will be met.
To be honest, I have no idea what I will be doing this fall. All I know is that I am listening to my Father and walking in the direction he is leading me.
I hope that you are doing the same.
