Prayer and Corresponding Action

She came home to be caregiver to her dying mother. Her four children came with her. She quit her job with as a para professional and relocated. For almost two years she was unemployed but the Lord provided. Then her mother died and when the insurance money ran out she only had God to sustain her and her children.

She had a B.S. in Business degree as well as an Associates but she could find no job. The school board in her area wasn’t hiring. Only temp agencies were used by employers. For two years she searched, went on interviews praying and fasting for her breakthrough. This last time the interviewer promised she was hired. But the devil would not let her blessing through.

But she knew what to do; she decided to trouble her trouble. She read this text and decided spiritual warfare was appropriate. Daniel 10:11-13: “The man said to me, “Daniel, you are highly respected. Pay attention to my words. Stand up, because I’ve been sent to you.” When he said this to me, I stood up, trembling. He told me, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. God has heard everything that you said ever since the first day you decided to humble yourself in front of your God so that you could learn to understand things. I have come in response to your prayer. The commander of the Persian kingdom opposed me for 21 days. But then Michael, one of the chief commanders, came to help me because I was left alone with the kings of Persia.”

Her plan was simple. Be persistent; this job would meet her family needs. The temp agency held up her job based on a background check they claimed had not been processed (this proved to be dishonest). She called each morning and afternoon. She did research to find the company performing the background check. She called her interviewer. She was persistent and God used an angel on the inside who first told her about the job to help. It took 30 days but her breakthrough came and she went to work. Persistence is the key to your breakthrough! Faith works when you work your faith. Hallelujah!
