The message I received at church yesterday was far too good not to share.
If you’re a new reader, take a moment and read my post, ‘Jobs & Jesus.’ If you’ve already read it, proceed.
I’m believing for, claiming and putting my faith out on a job. And not just any job. A job that aligns with the gifts that God has given me. A job that will push me, teach me, and help me grow. A job that will be the start of a career.
So hearing my pastor speak yesterday was one of those ‘right on time’ messages that I wanted to relay to you.
Ooh, I like the sound of that!
I knew you would. The following are 4 key points that I want to share.
God is not limited by time. Won’t that just knock you off your feet? Oftentimes, I forget that God is not restricted to my 24/7 time frame. Remember 2 Peter 3:8?
With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
God has put everything that we will need into motion long before we realize we have that need. He is the Master of time, operating in a realm far beyond what my brain can comprehend.
When God moves, He can move quickly. Turn in your bibles, if you will, to 2 Kings 7. When you have it, say ‘Amen.’
Seriously though, I read this Bible story for the first time yesterday and it blew my mind. If you don’t know this story of Elisha, the fleeing of the Syrian army and God’s overall awesome-ness, go take a peek. (Take a look at 2 Kings 6 for the backstory).
Unbelief will lock you out. In the story, there’s an officer who doesn’t believe what Elisha prophesied.
Anyone want to take a guess as to how his story ended?
As a child of God, God wants to give me His best. But, if I’m being double-minded, unstable, and doubtful in my way of thinking, that will all but guarantee that I don’t receive it (James 1:6-8).
When God blesses us, He does so that we may bless others. If I just confused you, stay with me. Yes, God blesses us so that we can personally enjoy His blessings. But He also does it, so that we can be a blessing to others. The four leprous men in 2 Kings 7 are a perfect example of that.
Needless to say, I have been speaking quick turnaround since church let out yesterday afternoon. I have shared it with my family, friends and now with all of you. I’ve written it in my journal and I’m pretty sure I spoke it in my sleep. And as the Lord lives, I received a text from an old classmate this morning about a potential job opportunity and heard from a position that I applied for that I am being considered.
A coincidence? No such thing, blog readers.
We are all believing for and putting our faith out on something. Maybe it’s an increase in your finances. Could be you’re praying for a positive change in your health. Or maybe you’re job hunting like me. Whatever it is, just remember.
