How do you avoid being layed off from a job?

The place where I currently work is experiencing cutbacks although they brought in newly hired staff including myself. The place where I work is a state school that is asking its employees to eight furlough days before June 30, 2010 and expects to reduce staff due to budgeting problems although school enrollment increased massively because the state I live in is experiencing a protracted recession. The recession is bringing people back to school, but the problem is the state school I work depends on state government money to operate its business. Our governor has asked for massive cutbacks in resources throughout the state employment system. I am new person, who has no intentions of going backward. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can prove my worth as an employee? I welcome all answers. P.S.- I experienced a 13-month period of unemployment and financial struggles, and I will admit that I do not want to experience something like that again because it was too hard the first go-around. Going through experiences like that took a toll on my health, and I can not live through another period like that again. I am very appreciative of what I have now because it was gained at a high price with much prayer involved. Thank you for your answers,

Marcus, I have to agree with the answers you already received. If the money isn't there, then not much you can do. Just do the best job possible. Continue to pray that God lets you keep your current position over others working around you. I don't want to see you suffer again.
