Faith grows as we gain more experience on a particular matter, take interview as an example. The more interviews you go, the less fearful you are as the questions would be on average the same with a slight twist based on the industry. So your confidence grow, knowledge improved and faith strengthen as well. More importantly, you are not relying on your own intelligence but doing your utmost best as what all should do but praying to God to give you signs that this is the job for you.
For me, I look at both external and internal. External meaning the place, the role you are applying and can range from compensation to many other things like clocking hours. Internal would refer to your feelings - how do you feel towards the person who interview you, the one you report to and the general feel you get from touring the office (if you get a chance). What does your heart say? Does it give you good vibes or something uneasy ? Do you foresee yourself likely to stay in the Company for the next few years ? If one stay calm and listen attentively, there are indeed tell tale signs that give you clues.
Meanwhile, keep on praying for the ones you would like to be interviewed or call up for interviews. Maybe it is a phone call or an email inviting you for the interview. Hear yourself on the phone, what would you say to the person calling? How would you feel upon receiving the email invitation? Who would you share with and what would you say? Feel it , intensify it and make it as real as it has already happened. Make the future the now.
Distractions, there would be BUT it is crucial to leave them alone and each time something negative crops up, quickly replace it with your goals (make it in writing and recite it often) and again see the future playing out in the present time. Let the division of time be removed as separation implies a time space, distance however near it is from the goal. Thus, if the goal has been realised, there is no separation. So, the more one practised, the near we can bring the future goal to the present.
“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. " Psalm 37:4
“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.” Psalm 118:8
The second verse is a powerful one,one that requires some wisdom to ponder on. Humans make judgement quickly based on what they see externally and draw conclusions. But God sees the heart and his way is higher than the humans and thus we can never find out his plans. We tend to complicate things, digging rabbit holes and going into unnecessary analysis when all God wants is to avoid us the pitfall. When in doubt, pray for God's advice. When praying, our heart needs to be still and not flushed with material worries and worldly affairs that cloud the thinking.
