They Aren’t

You’ve lost your job and no matter where you go you can’t seem to find one. You’ve put in, what seems like, 100 applications and nothing has come through. You and your family are staying with someone else and although you’re grateful for the roof, four walls, floor and amenities, there’s nothing like having your own. But what can you do? Then on top of everything, they keep making it known this isn’t your house and God, don’t you know it. Now, you’re at your wits end. Laying with your back turned from everyone, every night, so they don’t hear or see your tears. You’re beginning to believe your prayers are in vain.

They aren’t.

Bible tells us in Psalm 34:15, (Amplified Bible) “The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous [those with moral courage and spiritual integrity] And His ears are open to their cry.”

Sure, maybe you haven’t been doing everything right, but God hasn’t forgotten about you. Maybe there were times you went outside of God’s will, but God hasn’t forgotten about you. Here’s what you do. Repent, turn again, try again, and ask again. This time, ask with specifics, prepare like it’s on the way and worship like it’s already been received.

This isn’t only about jobs. Apply this to relationships, businesses, goals etc. Look baby, we ain’t time to be sitting around mopping and crying. Keep putting in job applications, keep applying, keep working, keep faithing this thang and keep believing. Now isn’t the time to lose hope because where God has placed life, He’s also put hope. You simply need to tap into it.

Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. – Hebrews 11:1
