Young man being let go from his job by supervisor.

Unemployed, Believed God for a Miracle

On the morning of July 24, 2023, when I arrived at work, my supervisor requested to meet with me in his office. He then informed me that it was my last day of employment. Up to this moment, I had been with the company for two years. My supervisor then stated that due the current economic conditions of the new company that had purchased our division many months earlier, that my position was being eliminated. After he told me that, I felt at ease and not upset that I had just lost my job.

In my position I was in charge of the Health, Safety, and Security for a very large manufacturing company job site. My supervisor then gave me the required documentation and I left and went home. Once I got home, I started applying to open job positions that I found from browsing a number of career search websites on the internet. As the months went by up until the end of March 2024, I was still unemployed after applying for over 100 positions. Of these over 100 job applications, I had received one in-person interview and around 4 phone interviews.

As a note on my personal cell, I had created a folder titled, Current Petitions to God. Many years ago, I had started writing my prayer requests to God as if they had already taken place. I followed the scripture in the book of Habakkuk which spoke of write the vision and make it plain so that those who saw it would run with it. In January of 2024, God gave my wife and I multiple signs for me to stop applying for a job and to just trust him. By the time March came around; I wrote the following to the folder on my phone:

God, I thank you for blessing me with a job/location that is a company/location where you need me to be as a blessing and, where the compensation/benefits are Amos 9:13-15 blessings. In the Message bible this particular scripture in Amos reads,

“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now. God’s Decree. Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessing like wine pouring off the mountains and hills!”

By this time, I was still unemployed and still believing God for a miracle. On March 18, I received an email from a recruiter stating that she found my resume on the internet, and she felt that my experience/credentials matched a position that her company was advertising. The miracle is, that out of the over 100 job applications that I had already submitted for around 6 months, I hadn’t applied to this position.
