I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. He is ever lending generously, and his children become a blessing.
I write this for those who are between jobs, looking for a job, or needing to find a different job. I understand the challenges when your company has shut down or your job has been eliminated. The networking…and waiting…the interviews…and waiting…can lead to discouragement and anxiety. But today’s passage is just for you.
David said, “I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread.” David was confident that he never witnessed God failing to provide for his children. I don’t know when the job will come but I know God keeps his promises. His timing will be perfect, and he will give you the opportunity that will meet the needs of your family as well as the blessing to share his resources with others.
So…keep networking. Keep interviewing. Keep chasing down the leads. And…know that God is right by your side. Depend on him. He will take care of you. And…you will be amazed at what he delivers.
- Tell God all that is on your heart and mind. Share the emotions—disappointments and fears.
- Depend on God to provide. As you chase the leads know that he is right there with you. It will be an amazing thing to watch him provide.
Father, I pray for those in the job search. Keep their minds and hearts focused on you. Keep their emotions in check by your Spirit. Remind them that they are not alone. You are right there with them. You will always provide exactly what is needed. Give them your peace. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
