When God Changes Our Job Assignment

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When we are born again, when the Holy Spirit brings us into the family of God we begin the greatest adventure of all times. We may only be a child age-wise or we may be a full-grown adult with children of our own; nevertheless God has a plan and a purpose for our life that begins to unfold. Astonishingly, how much God is able to do in us and through us during our life on earth with the unfolding process depends totally on us. By that limitation I am not talking about abilities, talents, or skills or even opportunities that from our standpoint seem to be benefiting or limiting factors. With God there are no limitations except as a result of our own human will. God can gradually or instantly install skills or abilities. God can empower us to go to certain schools, which He uses to teach us, or God can place us into situations where doors of opportunity open to us and we get on the job training.

To prove this, the Bible declares that All things work together for the good of those who love God, for those who are the called according to His purpose. That scripture means many things, but one thing it means for certain is that God can take even a really rotten event and use it for our ultimate good. We may not immediately see how in the world this event or lesson learned could possibly help us, but when the dust clears, we can understand, gaining insight and knowledge “if”, and here is the big question, “IF” we will search for God with all our heart and ask of Him that we might know the truth and be set free. Seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened, ask and it shall be given… however we must be serious and diligent. A casual careless approach gets us nothing
