D
id it feel like blind panic when you were told you were not wanted?
If it did then any eradication of this horror must lie in the infallible promises of God. However these
promises are dependent on taking a humble stance at the foot of the cross, no matter what the
circumstances may be. When a Christian loses a job it is a test of the ‘metal’ of that person God knows
it is too easy for us to slide into vengeful thoughts, self-righteous behaviour or worse still, self-pity. He
may not ask for a walk from Jarrow to London in order that a new job may be found BUT should He do so
and it is then carried out in obedience, the job becomes guaranteed with an abundant blessing. What He
has promised, as in Deuteronomy 31:6, is ‘Never will I leave you: never will I forsake you.’
When work or redundancy becomes a problem the last thing our enemy wants to see is a victory. He
would rather see that Christian sink into a pit of despair or take to drink and become isolated from their
spouse or family. However the Bible also makes another interesting statement that has troubled many a
Christian but the truth within this scripture, if realised, brings hope to any employment problem.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 says,‘If a man will not work, he shall not eat.’ So a man should work and should
receive payment, in order to eat. That is clear.
