“All who are skilled among you are to come and make everything the Lord has commanded.”
Exodus 35:10 (NIV)
To help address labour shortages in the tech sector, the Council of Canadian Innovators is calling on the federal government to pilot a new visa that would allow highly-skilled tech workers to come to Canada without a job offer. The CCI recently released its Talent and Skills Strategy, offering 13 key recommendations for policymakers to support Canada’s growing tech industry. The proposed visa, called the High Potential Tech Visa, would target in-demand professions like software developers and data scientists. It would allow holders to work and change jobs, and help them obtain Canadian permanent residency.
As a follower of Jesus, there is no better place for you to be than right in the centre of God’s will for your life. It is the sweet spot that many long to find. As you yield your body, mind and soul to the Lordship of Jesus in your life, you will find that He reveals His perfect plan for your life. And then He will call you to obediently follow that plan. We see that clearly in Exodus 35:10: “All who are skilled among you are to come and make everything the Lord has commanded.” In this case, the call was clear – God was going to have the Tabernacle built and He had just the right people to build it. So, He calls them to put the gifts and talents He had given them for this task and for His glory. He has gifted you as well, and you will never be at peace, and never find ultimate joy, until you say yes to His call on your life to use your gifts for His glory. How has God gifted you? What is He calling you to do with those gifts?
These have been words from the heart.
