“The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.” Proverbs 10:22, NKJV.
I had been working at this new company for 8 months, just working in the department that I had been hired to work in. I was fine with working there, but God told me that it was my time to leave and that He had some other people He wanted me to reach there, and He wanted to bless me.
One job I applied for, I had an interview and I never heard anything back from the hiring manager. I had to fight to not be discouraged. I then found two positions that I had interest in, but God said no, just apply for a specific one. So I did.
Two days later, a high-level woman who rarely comes to my department to get her packages, tells someone on this particular day that she’ll come pick it up. She then talks with my manager, who calls me over to meet her. God blessed my words and I spoke very well, causing her to be very impressed with me. I recognized I had favor with her also. At the very moment, I knew it was God helping me and His hand is in all of this. The interesting thing about it was because of her high-level position, she didn’t know that she was actually listed as the hiring manager for the one job the Lord told me to apply for!
I was then called for a phone interview, and then a three-panel interview. I could tell God’s grace was presentation and that this was for me. I then received a call with a job offer. God gave me a new position to reach others, and at the same time, making the highest salary I’ve ever had.
I can testify that He is good. Don’t give up on anything He has told you He will do for you. I didn’t get the first job because I wasn’t supposed to, and it would have paid a lot less than my new one. Whether financially or another area in your life, God wants to give you His best, so obey each step of direction that He provides. I did, and if He did it for me, know my brother He will do it for you.
Prayer: I give You praise Father for how You bless us! I’m encouraged this morning, and what You do for others, You will do for me. Help me to follow Your directions to lead me to my blessing. What You have for me, it is for me. I thank You for it now! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
