Work and
unemployment
So that taking a monetary allowance, whilst not working, then becomes a problem. In order to deal with
this, God will often insist on the acceptance of temporary and often humbling employment as measure
of trust. To ignore this call will never bring a blessing. James 4:10 says, ‘Humble yourselves before the
Lord, and he will lift you up’
So it is also clear that if there is acceptance, in all humility, to what God provides in the way of
employment, then the answer to exacting problems, the resolution of responsibilities and the return
to normal daily family life will also be given. It will be given exactly at the right time, as it is needed
and in the right measure. There are many who have found themselves in such humbling experiences
who have accepted it, even ungraciously but have then, through trial and error, been led ultimately
into employment that was way beyond any expectation. This was done because at the outset they were
determined never to
accept the lies of the devil and were determined that God should rescue them. 2 Peter 3:9 says, ‘The
Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you...’
He does this unequivocally in the lives of those who, through gritted teeth, expected it to happen in the
fi rst place. Then they may wait patiently for the work position He has in mind for them.
