I was out of college, married for a few years, and a daddy to a little boy. The best jobs I could find where we lived had nothing to do with my degree. I worked construction, janitorial, and sales, but really wanted a job in publishing.
I checked the classifieds in the magazine “Christianity Today.” It happened that a Christian trade magazine in Illinois needed an editor. I had never heard of the magazine, but the job description intrigued me. I prayed, sent my resume, and they called me for an interview.
The magazine was well known in its market. I had no experience and little hope of getting the job. Still, the interview process went well. They sent me home with an assignment to write a feature for the magazine. A couple of weeks after mailing the completed article, they called me again. I was hired and began fulfilling God’s call on my life.
God will enable you to fulfill His purpose for your life.
As God's promises, “He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them” (Psalm 145:19, NLT).
How has God provided for you? How did He equip you just in the nick of time? Share your experiences and thoughts in the comments!
NOTE: For the past and for the next several weeks, Tuesday’s post will be a brief two-minute devotional. Think, “Tuesday Two-Minute Devotional” or “Two-Minute Tuesdays” or something along those lines. ;-)
