Who is your employer - Hustle in Faith

Knowing that Christ is our true employer and that He has a variety of ways of providing for us, should be a game changer for Christians. It removes the stress and frees our thought life from the psychological and emotional turmoil from the drama created by the workplace Christians should not view their physical employer as their only source of income in order to survive. You can gain unlimited employment when you sign up for Christ’s Employment Agency.

There are always tremendous amounts of opportunities for everyone employed at Christ’s Employment Agency. Look at how Christ has already used technology to open the doors for everyone. You don’t have to have a college degree anymore. Everyone has the same opportunity to achieve success.  Christ has allowed technology to even the playing field so that everyone can use their God-given talent and skills. Years ago no one would have thought this was possible. Now, everyone; even people without a college degree can earn a comfortable income while performing a job that they enjoy.

Considering these facts and more that I have not mentioned, should let us know that we are not to view our physical employer as a god. They don’t hold our life and liberty in their hands. We must always remember that those horrible bosses and coworkers are really demons that do not have control over your life. Therefore, we should not bow down and suck up to these people so we can keep our job.

If Christ allows, let me reiterate the word “allows” because it is important. If Christ allows our employer to lay us off and/or fire us, provided we stay in faith, this is just a sign that Christ is relocating us. If we remain in faith, Christ has another adventure for us to explore as to why He allows Satan’s worker to close the door to that job.

With this in mind, we should not over exaggerate the importance of our present job. Before we go further, let’s be clear. Since Christ is truly our Employer, surely we want to be fair-minded and do our best on this job. My point is that we should not over exaggerate the importance of our present job. Overexaggerating its importance will open the door for demonic forces (i.e. bosses, supervisors, and co-workers) to use our job as a weapon to threaten us.

If we view our present job from the proper perspective that it is just one of many resources that Christ is using to provide for us, we will not allow Satan and his demons to hold our thought life hostage with psychological and emotional suffering at the thought of losing our job. We would know that our lack of work does not affect our security, provision, and employment with Christ.

If we put things in perspective, Christ’s Employment Agency is not short on opportunities; and, Christ has many creative ways for us to make a living so we can enjoy the abundant life He came to give us (Joh 10:10). Satan and his demons hold our thought life hostage with the thought of taking away our job.

When our situation is put in the proper perspective, we would know that moving from one job to another can be the best adventure of our life. Such a move brings new knowledge, new opportunities to explore, and most importantly, a chance for us to start a new chapter in our life. To keep this positive state of mind, we need only to remember that our livelihood and success is not linked to our job.

Such negative thinking makes us obsessed in holding on to our job. All of which allows Satan to enter our thought life and build a fortress within our soul. Our fear of losing our job is based on our limited knowledge and understanding of how Christ and the spiritual world operate. If we daily read and meditate on God’s word, we would know that Satan’s workers cannot do anything against us unless Christ gives His permission.

In other words, Satan and his demons do not have the power to take away our job. Christ stripped them of their powers (Heb 2:14; Col 2:14-15; 1Joh 3:8; Joh 18:37). The only powers they have are what we give to them out of ignorance, fear, and stupidity.

It is our ignorance, fear, and stupidity that allow Satan’s workers to use our job as a weapon to threaten us. My point to this podcast is to set us free from these negative thoughts. If we view our situation from the proper perspective, that our present job is nothing special, Satan would not be able to perpetuate our thinking with negative thoughts of us losing our job.

Again, our present job is just another resource God is using to provide for us. If we keep this in mind, we will not approach our loss of work with hopelessness and despair.  Such thinking leads to other negative traits of Satan. Christians must keep in mind that our present job is not our only source of provision.

For sinners this is true. However, if you are a Christian, surely, we know that God has many, many ways of providing for us.  Think, God had a raven to provide for Elijah’s needs. Knowing that our needs will always be provided for is why Christ told us Matt 6:25-33 not to worry about food and shelter. Just like God provides for the birds He will also provide for us.

Our present job is just one resource God is using to take care of us. It is not the only resource at His disposal. If Christ allows our physical employer to lay us off and/or fire us, this simply means that Christ is relocating us to another position or He is ready for us to start a new chapter in our life.

Keeping in mind that Christ is our true Employer and that He has all sorts of resources just waiting for us to explore, should encourage us to focus on strengthening our faith. Everything depends on our faith; our trust in Christ. It is our trust in Christ that determines if Christ will open other doors for us.

During our loss of work, we need to stop Satan from loading our thought life down with his negative traits of worry, confusion, anger, and other negativities that lead us to being held hostage with his psychological and emotional suffering. If we remain in faith we would know that God has another adventure in store for us be explored.

We know this to be true because Christ is our Provider and His Agency is not limited. There is a tremendous amount of opportunities available in Christ’s Agency. The problem is our weak faith and fear. It is our weak faith and fear that limits Christ from opening other doors of opportunities for us to utilize our God-given talent and skills.

To remove this weak mindset we need only to keep our focus on the truth. Christ is really the one providing for our needs. Although we were/are being paid by a physical entity, Christ is our true Employer. Therefore, we just need to stay in faith so we can explore all the adventures God has planned for us.
