I recently quit my job!
Colossians 1:17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
“Every miracle in the Bible first started as a problem.”
When God says “the time is ripe see, I have placed an open door before you (Rev 3:8),” it takes Faith wrapped in boldness to take the next step. Many are the times I believe we pray to God to change situations in our lives however when He starts making the moves we let fear cripple our belief and go back into our misery. This is because when God starts His work in us, He throws us in not so comfortable situations. He destabilizes our life as we know it, He asks as to take a leap of faith into a place of unknown or untold. I have learnt to welcome the changes in various areas of my life; while at it, it has awaken my soul with thirst for more of God. For I know His word is absolute, faith will triumph because heavenly promises are always kept.
So yes I left my job as God led me, I had worked for 3 years (Sept 2014 to Aug 2017). Where I started as an intern then moved to entry level. Truth be told according to “my plan” it was to be a short term contract. Get in, do internship as am looking for something concrete. However, God had other plans, He placed me there “temporarily” 3 years LOL! (He has a sense of Humor). In order to teach me a lot about myself and where my Faith stood (I was tested). I believe it was the best environment for my separation period. It reminds me of the story of Jacob (Genesis 32:22-32) in that solitude Jacob wrestled with God (typical human nature to fight God in everything). God was after Jacob’s heart, He wanted to lift His servant up and given Jacob’s history a fighter on the run. He wrestled with him and he yielded. God revealed Himself. Once again Jacob is compelled to give his identity but this time it is before God who is all knowing. He acknowledges truthfully and thereafter comes blessings and ownership of his life.
27 The man asked him, “What is your name?”
“Jacob,” he answered.
28 Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel,[a]because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”
Three years is a long time, I learnt that God did not want superficial faith which was bail me out of this situation kind of God. He is and will always be after my heart, not just worship but complete surrender and ownership of who I am in Him. Once again I found myself before His presence completely out of strength, on my knees crying out to him “speak you servant is listening”. I had to surrender my anxiety, be quiet and stop striving and indeed I have seen His power manifest over my life (Psalm 46:10). He fought for me in the workplace when I was unwanted… He used unexpected person to keep me in the position until He was ready to lift me to the next place of royalty. He is a God who loves His Princesses, and true to it My Father is a King.
Beginning of this year He revealed to me of the great works He was beginning to do in my life. I was going to have a grand move as it was my last year in the work place. I remember I prayed for a move as I felt limited in terms of growth. At the same time I prayed that He may open away financially for me to pursue further studies. I believe He is Faithful and His Ears are inclined to His Children cry. Put your Faith in Him and surely He will answer of even much greater things. Time has come, He has opened away when everything seemed impossible and He gave me His word surely! It has comes to pass. As I take the next step of faith I know He is already there. He has set it up for me, for there is beauty and reward in trusting in our true God. He is a God of all Seasons and all times. My prayer is that He helps me to see the blessing that am walking on. “May I never step out of my obedience walk with Him in order to get something out of His will. Because for sure I will have to stay out of God to keep it.” Its all in His Hands for His Grace covers me. That is all I know and All I need. He says He made me out nothing so I will trust Him to take care of me…Glory belongs to Him who never left my side.
Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
