2 Chronicles 26-5 He sought God during the days of Zechariah, who instructed him in the fear of God. As long as he sought the Lord, God gave him success.
So I have been extremely bored lately. No job has been offered, not even an interview. I have still been letting fear hold me back from working with my Mary Kay business. I have been doing volunteer work but it still isn’t enough for me.
I am really confused about whether I should go back to school and for what, social work or counseling? Do I need school at all? What kind of job do I really want to do?
I keep telling God “come on I am ready for the next step, tell me what to do”. I asked Him to speak to me through His Word and tell me what to do, the verse above is what hit me.
As long as he sought the Lord, God gave him success.
He wants me to make choices and go for it? Whatever I choose He will give me success? Great, now to make decisions, that is the hard part now. At least He took the pressure off of wondering if I will make the right choices and succeed. He says as long as I seek Him I will.
When I think of what I want to do with my life, the only thing that changes my thoughts is fear. So if you eliminate the fear and what if’s it is easier to make choices.
I want to work with children who are neglected, who have been abused, I want to show them people love them even if I am not able to mention God specifically I know He will still use me and open doors for the children he would bring into my life.
I happened to come across an ad for a youth worker, no degree needed, preferred but not needed. In the add it says you can’t be afraid of mouthy teenagers who use foul language. Okay, well I am not scared of their mouths, but I am scared of other things they might be capable of. God says though He will give me success and He also says not to fear. So I applied for the job. I will pursue it and see where it leads.
As far as my business, I am going to start out just handing out flyers and gift certificates. Believe it or not that is still scary to me because of the possible rejection, but that again is just fear.
Just seek God when you need Him, He might not give you every answer because He wants you to be able to make decisions for yourself, but He will give you something to hold on to and strengthen you, just like He did for me.
As long as I seek the Lord, God will give me success. Whether it be financial, emotional, Spiritual, or moving mountains of fear, He will give me success.
