These jobs are all about the flexibility and the benefits–including, of course, the ability to work from home.

There's nothing like working from home–that is, if you can make it work for you. Prerequisites: an efficient space, a healthy respect for your own time–and, of course, a job.

If it all sounds appealing to you, and you haven't already found your work-from-home nirvana, perhaps Amazon might be the answer. The company recently announced it's planning to hire 5,000 home-based workers to join its customer service teams.

Many of the new jobs will come with benefits, including health insurance, sick and vacation time, and tuition.

Jobs "with benefits"
We'll get to the hourly pay in a minute, but the real value in these jobs is probably in the flexibility and those two little words: "with benefits." Because if you work more than 20 hours a week at Amazon, the company says, you get:

"… life and disability insurance, dental and vision insurance with premiums paid in full by Amazon, and funding toward medical insurance," along with the company's Career Choice program, which "prepays 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a future career at Amazon."

"There are lots of people who want or need a flexible job–whether they're a military spouse, a college student, or a parent–and we're happy to empower these talented people no matter where they happen to live," Tom Weiland, Amazon vice president for worldwide customer service, said in a press release.

In addition to these positions, Amazon says it's hiring another 25,000 part-timers to work onsite this year, and another 100,000 full-timers over the next 18 months.

There's no word on what the home-based jobs pay in the press release, but a separate job listing says the "pay rate nationwide is $10.00 per hour."

And, at least for now, it looks like the part-time hours are limited to nighttime and weekend work, which could make it tough for parents who were hoping to work while their kids are at school, for example.

Also–again at least for now–Amazon is limiting hiring to people who live in 26 of the 50 states. (Sorry Californians and Texans.) You can find the details and the application process here.  http://www.amazondelivers.jobs/about/our-opportunities/#hourly-fulfillment-associates

Nobody is going to get rich working from home for Amazon for $10 an hour, of course, but even though we're technically at full employment in America, that's an economic term–of course there are still people who would like to be working but can't find jobs.

Among them: lots of stay-at-home moms, military spouses, and others who need income but might not have the flexibility to work outside their homes. Here's hoping other companies follow suit, and that these unemployed and underemployed workers might now have a steady, new, workable option.

The meaning of Jesus’ name, (“Yeshua” in Hebrew,) is to deliver or rescue. Jesus is our Savior.

Jesus Delivers Us
The meaning of Jesus’ name, (“Yeshua” in Hebrew,) is to deliver or rescue. Jesus is our Savior.

My eyes are always on the Lord, he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.

Psalm 25:15
Recently, a Bible teacher asked…

“do you want Jesus to deliver you out of the place that brings you suffering?” Sometimes a broken heart, financial trouble or addiction keeps us away from God. Only the grace of Jesus can make us whole in every situation and carries us through it.

When King David cried out to God in Psalm 25:16-18, he said, “Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress. My problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all! Feel my pain and see my trouble. Forgive all my sins.”

With King David’s prayer in mind, let’s explore how God has the power to set us free from from our troubles and how to look to Jesus to deliver us:

First, How Can You Be Delivered?
Listen to the words of Jesus, “I tell you the truth; those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.” (John 5:24)

In this world, suffering is unavoidable. But the next world will be free from it. Getting to know the Son of God personally and accepting His gift of eternal life is the way to gain Heaven: His deliverance from all worldly suffering.

Know that Faith is what brings Deliverance.
Have faith that the Son of God, Yeshua, can set you free. Hebrews 11:6 tells us, “… it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.” Believe in Him in your heart.

Know Jesus’ Desire for You to be Delivered and Whole.
True faith asks, believing Jesus is willing, but understanding He may have better plans.

The leper in Matthew 8:1-3 believed in Christ's ability but humbly asked for healing: “Large crowds followed Jesus as he came down the mountainside. Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him and knelt before him. “Lord,” the man said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.” Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared.”

The Apostle Paul also asked for healing, but discovered that it was more important for him to trust in Christ's sufficiency than to experience physical healing. (2 Corinthians 12:7-10)

Ask yourself … how great is your burden?
Do you feel like you’ve done too much or have gone through too much in your life to be delivered? You’re not alone.

With Christ, there is peace that supasses all of our temporary troubles here on earth. This peace comes from knowing that we can only find victory in Jesus. So, “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts.” (Hebrews 3:7) Because he has overcome the world, bringing us everlasting hope, no struggle can keep us from it. “For God says, “At just the right time, I hear you. On the day of Salvation, I helped you.”( 2 Corinthians 6:2).

It doesn’t matter how great the burden you carry.

Jesus is greater.

Pray this week:

Father, “turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress. My problems go from bad to worse.” Help me. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
