A recent article by the New York Times suggests, “According to a 2014 Gallup poll, more than half of workers in the United States define themselves based on their job, and have been doing so consistently since 1989.”
Identity placed in position or company can lead to feelings of depression when a change must be made. However, identity is not found in position, but rather in gifts, calling and character given to us by God.
Romans 11:29 says, “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”
Perhaps you have an unwanted job change, or a wanted job change. The change itself may cause a sense of grieving what is being lost. However, we can be certain the God-given gifts and calling will not be removed regardless of position.
