I am wanting prayer help for guidance. __ You know what? How about we all pray for guidance for one another in this thread! Our Father bless you all, give you discernment, and direct your paths and all your ways, that you all be fruitful in righteous abundance, and abounding in the Love of our Lord. Father help, heal, strengthen, teach, instruct, correct, and Comfort you all in all that you need. In Yahoshua's name, selah / amen.

Honestly, my brother and I had planned for years to move to Israel, only to find you cannot live there unless you are "Jewish" by faith -- meaning giving up on believing our Messiah already came once. So, we, by various revelations, redirected to Jordan, which was and is supposed to be part of Israel. We moved up to Alaska, as it would appear our Father wanted us to, and have been blessed since, though it was hard at times. However, right before the lockdown, and after the announcement, of COVID-19, we felt something to be wrong in the spirit. There's no way we could have known the lockdown would happen, and we didn't, but we felt / perceived something was coming / wrong, even though we had no concern of this "Covid virus". Then, all flights got cancelled. The fear came, then. We had quit our jobs with forewarning, prepared, packed up, and were mostly ready to go, when my brother told me the flights were cancelled. I immediately, felt / feared ? the need to go back to work for money.

We prayed. We rescheduled. We waited at home in quarantine, deciding to trust in our Father to get us through. Cancelled again. This continued with us selecting the closest affordable flights available each time. Our moving savings was getting low, and we had no income, so we applied for Unemployment Insurance, and waited, struggling with our faith, and the stronger trying to bolster the other in believing we would make it to Jordan if it be YAH'S will, and, nevertheless, our ABBA would provide. After six cancellations, we prayed. I was struggling terribly spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and so I didn't affirm with my brother, but he got to refund the tickets. Before we even got the money for them, we received a lump of cash for Covid relief and/or U.I.. . . . After waiting a bit, we tried to get new tickets, and were denied by the airlines due to boarders closures.

We wait, wondering what our Father wants us to be doing. We despair, wondering if we are listening or being led astray. We know our ABBA will provide for us and direct our ways; but, we doubt our own competency to listen clearly, and wonder, are the only Yokefolk who seem to struggle this much with knowing our Father's will for our lives? What is everyone else in the Body of Messiah getting about moving, waiting, working, the U.S. and its increasing perversions (or staying here, or what our God will do), living in the wilderness, fleeing to Edom, or other things mentioned in the Bible? What are we missing or stuck on, or are we misled, at all? Yes, at times, I can personally say I have great and wonderful peace, and joy!; but other times, I am, at times, spirituality assailed and tormented day and night, and fraught with doubts for the future, survival, and nagged with suicidal and homicidal ideations. Other times, I have incredible peace. Our Father will provide, whatever may come; but, what are we supposed to be doing, now, or eventually, in the great plan of our Perfect and Almighty God?

God wants me to quit my current job. Its becoming more corrupted every day there. So in a year I plan on a early retirement even though my retirement income wont be alot. I trust the Lord to get me through it. My wife wants me to keep working out of fear of what if's, so I plan on starting my own business, that way, no one corrupted and a person who seeks the flesh will be able to direct me in a bad way.

God wanted us to quit our jobs, and before that to change jobs; and now to wait on getting jobs. We also felt a long time we should start a business. I even have items in my mind for development ( kitchenware designs ), and other ideas ( video games that actually teach you life skills, survival skills, people skills, occupation skills ). Remember, you can always pray and ask for guidance on your endeavors. And our Father may direct you to ( or to you ) people, places or groups, and things you never knew you needed. You may even be able to get others on board, including fellow Yokefolk, or join up with others. Our Father knows.

I have many goals, ambitions, and ideas for going forward; and, I know true prosperity is in our Father's hands. He will "direct [my] ways", and the ways of all those whom seek Him, for He is faithful to accomplish all that He has promised.

Proverbs 3:5-7 KJV said:
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

Hi Brother Brad, Every time I quit any job on my own,I suffered a price for it.As I matured in the Lord I found out a few things I will share with you to consider.1. Feeling about ones job,is not a reason to quit. lol I know!!! In prayer the Holy Spirit reminded me of this( Rom 8:14-15) For if one has any doubt whatsoever you know you have wondered off the narrow path. Like you said earlier what if kills faith!!

If we stay led,we never have to wonder,sometimes after being led things did not look good,but that is where our assurance comes in our faith!!( 2 Tim 1:9-14) For the Lord has not given us any spirit of fear in any way!! ( 2 Tim 1:7) With this in our mindset brother,I was helped greatly!! Being a good steward is not just about money but also SELF!!!! CONTROL!!!! in every area of our life bro.( Titus 1:7-9) Hope this helps! Blessing!

Yesssss... but.... thats because you did it on your own. "God" wants me to quit the job, He is simply patient with me in waiting to let me finish out the last year to where I can receive some retirement benefits that I have paid into for many years. God would be happy if I quit today. But it would freak out my wife and put us a rough situation financially, which I shakily trust the Lord over the finances. But to appease my wife, who is a good wife (just not as much faith as me), I am waiting 11 months now.
