Jesus can and will get us a job and even a career. What is impossible with us mere humans with no resources whatsoever IS possible with Jesus with every resource available to Him and therefore He makes available to us His beloved. I was 55 with no real job skills and no hope of getting any... and Jesus provided a series of miracles that only He could do. Supernatural.

When I stopped depending on my mere human abilities and began resting (there is a rest for the people of God) that is when God began working in my life. I did enough worrying and striving for a life time and it got me confusion., emptiness and shame.

When we work..... God rests. When we rest.... God works. Worry for nothing... but in everything by prayer and supplication make your requests known unto God.. leaning your whole human personality on Him... not only will He give you peace but He will direct your paths and lead you to where you need to go. He gives peace in the process as well. He supplies every need even peace as we wait.

Not because of our being good enough or for our earning it but because of Jesus who IS good enough and who is standing in for us.


6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition ([b]definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.

And God’s peace [shall be yours, that [c]tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall [d]garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
6 In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
