Change is here to stay. And not just change, but constant change. You can count on turbulence in your career. But how do you survive and thrive in the midst of an uncertain job market?
First things first: The God of the Bible is still God today. He has not abandoned you nor forsaken you (Deuteronomy 31:8). Do not let the circumstances you see in the job market tell you otherwise.
As you go through constant change, here are three ways you can prepare yourself for uncertainty in the job market.
1. Fortify your trust in God
When you feel the effects of constant change, it is important to cultivate your trust in God. You will have to weather a lot of change in the future so you will be wise to prepare your heart now.
There will be many situations that will challenge your faith. You will be tempted to abandon your faith. Your perceptions will tell you one thing, so you will want to know how to respond with your faith.
Read the Scriptures. Confess your fears. Be real with God. And He will take care of the rest.
By making God your security in the midst of insecurity, you will fortify your trust in God—to prepare for when you will need Him most.
2. Believe in yourself
God knew what He was doing when He made you. He does not make junk, so don’t talk to yourself as if He did.
God is a creative God. And you are made in His image (Genesis 1:27). So you have the ability to invent—and to re-invent. And you have the capacity for change.
Believe that you can change. You are able to do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13).
3. Don’t listen to the enemy of your soul
God is in control, but you must believe that. The enemy of your soul will tell you otherwise. So prepare your mind for action (1 Peter 1:13).
Remember: If God is for you, who can be against you (Romans 8:31)? The enemy of your soul will try to plant thoughts in your mind. So submit to God, resist the enemy, and he will flee from you (James 4:7).
You are everything God made you to be, so you could become everything He wants you to be. Trust what God says, believe in who you can become, and don’t listen to the lies of the enemy of your soul. Then you will be able to survive and thrive in constant change—even in an uncertain job market.
