How Does God Feel About FEAR?

If fear was necessary to life, God certainly would have given it to us.  But He didn’t! The Bible is very clear about it. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:7, NLT)  That’s new news to many of us.  Fear is a evil spirit and it doesn’t come from God. Understand this, if God is not the author of fear then it’s an enemy spirit and we need to deal with it accordingly. Let’s start by identifying “fear” and all the related “enemy agents.” From concern,…

MY VERY NEXT THING by Stan Rarden

 HOPE AND CHANGE in God’s kingdom it’s different! At times during my working career, in the very back of my mind the thought would pop up, “What would I do if this job went away?” I would respond casually, almost indifferently, “I’ll never be out of work for too long. I’m good at many things, and I know so many people that I could probably go from one gig to another without too much trouble.” This proved to be less true than I’d hoped. Out of work, and after a few months of searching for new work and getting nowhere,…

Interview with Former Job Seeker

I wanted to share this feedback from a job seeker who went through his season out of the workplace God’s way.  Thought you might like to hear his impressions first hand. Barb INTERVIEW WITH A FORMER JOB SEEKER Was there any evidence that God was preparing you for an employment transition before it happened?  Yes, approximately nine months before my employment transition, I had the desire to better understand my core principles (which are faith based), develop a plan to make positive changes in my life (heath, relationships, work/life balance), and plan for my future.  Through a friend, I was…

Proof You Are God’s Employee!

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your bodyand in your spirit, which are God’s. 2 Corinthians 6:19-20 Okay, okay, so you’ve seen this scripture but it really doesn’t have any practical meaning for you.  You know that Jesus paid the price that covers ALL your sins—past, present, and future—and you believe you are headed to Heaven one day.  But, beyond that, this verse really doesn’t…

Battle for the Workplace

There’s a spiritual battle being fought over the workplace. The armies of the Lord and true followers of Christ are warring against the forces of the Enemy and the economy of the world. What’s being fought for is the hearts of workers including, unfortunately, the hearts of many believers who don’t even realize they’ve been captured and imprisoned in this battle. That statement may strike you as odd and you may be wondering how hearts could be won or lost in the workplace. In many cases the hearts of those in the workplace may seem to be nowhere in sight….

How’s your Job Search Going?

“How’s your job search going?” How many times have you been  asked that question? Too many times to count, I’ll bet. And it’s a tough question to answer too. After all, how can any job seeker really know how the process is going? What are the mile markers that would indicate progress and how far it is to that destination of a new job? By and large, the majority of people looking for work have no benchmarks to measure themselves against and no true sense of their job search performance. And that’s definitely not good…for job seekers or their families. When…
