A job fair: an event in which employers, recruiters, and schools give information to potential employees.
It’s not the will of God for you to just be an average Christian. It’s the will of God for you to have victory in your life. His will is for you to cast out devils and for you to win souls. God’s will is for you to be an overcomer and conquer every battle the enemy throws at you. It’s the will of God for your life to be a light and to make a difference in this dark world.
Now, when a man or a woman leaves this world for Heaven, their anointing, their mantle, doesn’t go with them. It falls to the ground because there are no sick needing healing and no lost souls to be witnessed to in Heaven.
I want to talk to you about a few job openings.
There was a man named Enoch, and Enoch walked with God. Genesis 5:24. I think his hunger for God started when he was a little boy. While everyone wanted to be like Mom or Dad, or Grandpa, Enoch wanted to be like Adam. When he heard that Adam walked with God, that’s what he wanted to do. I believe his daddy told him what modern religion tells us.
“Well, it’s not like that anymore. They don’t speak in tongues or shout or worship. God doesn’t talk to people anymore. That was just one time.”
But I think little Enoch said, “Daddy, you told me that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. If He walked with Adam, why wouldn’t He walk with me?”
“God just doesn’t do it anymore.”
Is it that God won’t do it, or just that no one is hungry for Him? Some people have sat down and gotten comfortable, but we need God to shake our comfortability and give us a new hunger for Him. There are deeper depths and higher heights that we haven’t reached yet. There’s more to God than what we have.
So, Enoch started searching for God. He had a good life, not really needing anything. I believe one day the I Am got off His throne and came down, hiding while Enoch was praying.
“God, where are you?” He said. “God, I’ve been looking for you!”
I believe God stepped out, “Enoch, what’s going on, boy? They say you’ve been doing this for months. You’ve been looking for me. Is your wife sick? Is your family in trouble? What do you want?”
“Well, God.” Enoch says. “I don’t really want anything, but you.”
Something moved in God that He hadn’t felt in 7 generations. For 7 generations, people prayed when they needed something and never really wanted to walk with God. It’s not enough to pray when the baby is sick or when money is hard to come by. Someone needs to pray when the sun is shining, and everything is good. Someone needs to cry out to Heaven, “God, I want a desire for you! I just want God!” The Lord is looking for somebody that just wants to sit at His feet.
Enoch is gone. The job is open. God is looking for someone who will pick up the application and walk with Him.
Genesis 6:8. Judgment is coming. You don’t have to love my Jesus, go to church, or read your Bible, BUT things are fixing to change. One day, there won’t be any altar calls, no preachers, and no one to cry for people to come to the ark.
We need some Noah’s that will say, “satan, you are not going to take my children, as long as I can weep and pray before God.”
When you first start living for God, things are a little easier. When you first start building the ark, the trees are only about a hundred yards away. The next year they are about two hundred. But maybe five years later, they are a mile away. If you aren’t careful, you won’t get out of the church, but you will stop building your ark because it gets too hard. What happened to our burden for our loved ones? We need to go back to the situations we’ve given up on and pray again. If we will just pray and keep on praying, God WILL answer. Pray again! He will make a way!
There’s a job opening right now for a Noah that will stand up and say, “I don’t care if the world laughs at me. I’m going to build an ark. My family will not be lost. There won’t be perversion and filth in my home. I will fight for my family.” Hebrews 11:7.
God is looking for a friend.
James 2:23. People fast and pray for a greater anointing or gifts, but how many seek God just to be His friend?
If you are going to be a friend of God, you can’t get mad when He says, “Not now.” You have to learn to love Him and trust Him when He crosses his arms and tells you to wait. A servant will stay faithful as long as God does what he wants. However, it takes a real friend to be true to God when nothing is happening.
If we are made in the likeness and the image of God, then where did our desire for friends come from? It came out of the heart of God. God is unshakeable, but He has emotions and feelings. You can look in the Bible and find places where He will laugh or places where He wept. God has desires. He wants to be wanted.
I would encourage you to pray that God draws you. There are times when we ignore God’s draw and then later, we wonder why He doesn’t do it as often. If He draws you and you yield, He’ll start drawing you more.
God is the type of friend that when He walks in the room, something will change. If we will just be His friend, when He shows up, every enemy of darkness will flee. There’s an application. God is searching for a friend.
There’s a job opening for a Joseph.
What happened to your dreams? Some people used to dream about having so much faith that they would lay hands on the sick and they would recover. Some dreamed about being so anointed and helping people. Some dreamed that they would get so close to God and He would use them.
The haters, Joseph’s brothers, tried to stop his dream. Potiphar’s wife tried to stop his dream. Years in prison tried to stop his dream. But Joseph made up in his mind that his dream came from God and he was going to keep on dreaming. God is our present help in times of trouble. No matter the situation or what it looks like, God will make a way.
Joseph was part of the lineage of Jesus. The devil wasn’t necessarily after Joseph just to kill Joseph. The devil was after the seed that was going to come after Joseph. If you are being attacked, the devil is doing so because of the seed ahead of you.
There are many other job applications available.
Moses’ job is available. If we’ll become like Moses, we’ll see miracle after miracle. There’s an opening for a Joshua.
There are some applications for a young lad who will lead a man or woman back to God. Samson used to be so anointed, but something took his eyes off of God. The enemy plucked out his eyes and took his strength by cutting his hair. The little lad in the story led Samson to the pillars to fulfill the last big job God had for him. I’m sure you know someone who used to sing, preach, or pray, but satan has taken their eyes and they can’t see any way back to God.
This is one of the applications that I personally want to pick up. I want to be a little lad in someone’s life, leading someone back to the Lord. I want to win a soul.
Jeremiah, Isaiah, Daniel, they can all lay back down and rest. They’ve fought their fight and ran their race. This is our opportunity to win the lost and help people back to God.
I want to encourage you to listen to this sermon below and pray. Pray that you get a greater hunger for God. Pick up one of these applications and chase after the Almighty!
