Many of the people with whom I have counseled over the last four years have come into our group basically seeking the same job he or she last held. This desire is understandable. In most cases, we feel we were doing well in that role and should be able to contribute very quickly to our new employer's efforts doing what we have already done. Another "benefit" of pursuing the same type of job is that we don't have to do a lot of work to make ourselves "presentable" for that type of position. This type of thinking is false!
Looking at our next assignment from a Biblical perspective allows us to see that God is a god who desires growth in us. If He has finished with us in our old position, why would he send us back into the same position? What else is there to learn? Why would we not expect Him to place us in a job where we will be stretched and have an opportunity to grow and master even more responsibilities?
As we spend time with our Father, over our job search, let's ask Him to show us how He plans to grow us, so we can be seeking the right types of positions.
