An Employment Agency In Heaven?
What do you do when you are out of a job?
You apply for unemployment compensation.
You read the want ads.
You pound the pavements.
You follow up tips from friends.
You cut back on the frills.
You don’t eat as much meat.
You get your shoes half-soled—again.
You try not to let the kids know you’re worried.
Maybe you pray. Why not?
The paycheck seems far removed from God—until it’s gone. But the Bible says God was there all the time. Note this from the Book of Acts: “But [God] has always given proof of himself by the good things he does … he gives you food and fills your hearts with happiness” (14:17, TEV).
God cares. He is pleased when his children ask for jobs. “Lord, help me to trust you when I’m out of work. Send me the job I need. Thank you.”1
