If you are currently in part-time work, could this be your opportunity to ask God if He has placed you in this situation in order to release you into your higher calling? If this is so, He will provide for you in the same way He did for Paul – Acts 18:2-3.

There are many different ways you can work on a part-time basis. If you feel that God is indeed calling you out of full-time work in order for you to enter more fully into His particular calling for your life, then why not check out this article?

  2. 2. Faith in God’s provision You have to go a long way nowadays to find a subject that will test our faith in God’s provision for our lives more than our employment situation. I started off this blog by asking: what is your current job situation? Well, according to government figures (May 2012), many workers in the UK, to be precise 1.77 million, probably feel like Sandra Bullock on that doomed bus. This is the number of underemployed people in the UK, who are working part- time but would rather be working full-time and earning more. I have no doubt that God is using our employment as a way of deepening our levels of faith and trust in Him, and I can truly say that 3 years on from losing my job, the Lord has definitely provided for us financially. Scripture never denies that life will sometime resemble a boiled sweet, but it also promises that those who trust the Lord will not be disappointed. Psalm 37:3 - Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. If part-time work is not paying your bills, then I would really encourage you to push-in and persevere in your prayers for a better paid job. God will not disappoint. Could this also be an open door? However, before we rush off to pray for a full-time job, could God be calling you to part-time work in order to release you into His purposes for your life? All of us are called by God to be many things such as being an excellent spouse, parent, Sunday school leader etc. Our career can be a calling, but on the other hand, the job that pays the bills can also facilitate our main calling. For example, the Apostle Paul was a tent maker and Luke was a doctor but, for both men, their higher calling was to spread the gospel message. If you are currently in part-time work, could this be your opportunity to ask God if He was placed you in this situation in order to release you into your higher calling? If this is so, He will provide for you in the same way He did for Paul – Acts 18:2-3. Different kinds of part-time work There are many different ways you can work on a part-time basis.
