What Happened To Your Job Security?

You may work for a large company that is now downsizing. What if your job could be eliminated? Does that frighten you?

That fear is understandable, but it might be good to get a different perspective by examining your source of trust. You may have been trusting in a large, seemingly-secure company to be your source of stability.

Now you have an opportunity to learn to trust God in new ways. God has promised that if you seek first his kingdom, everything you need to live—home, clothes, food—will be given to you. You can replace your fear with faith by confronting those fears with God’s Word. It helps to memorize Matthew 6:33, Joshua 1:9, and other relevant verses. Try quoting them each time fear starts to invade your mind.

You can rest in the full assurance that God has good plans for your life and he will never leave you or forsake you. That’s much better than any earthly employer can offer you.

Are there other ways you can deal with the fear of losing your job? I’d value your viewpoint.
