Everyday Blessings #2: Job
Written by Teddy on June 4, 2021
I’m reading through the book of Job in my through the Bible plan. Now, there’s no better book to make you feel good about your troubles than Job. You think you’re having a bad day? Job had it worse! You think you’ve suffered sudden financial downfall? Job lost all of his wealth in one day. You’ve had a friend betray you or give you bad advice? Job had that. You’ve lost a loved one? Job lost all 10 children in one day. And yet the Bible says, in all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly. When everyone around told him to curse God and die, he still sinned not. He was a man of integrity, a man of character, an upright man.
My friend, we are not promised a life with no troubles. But we are promised that God will never leave us or forsake us. We are promised that He will meet our needs. We are promised that in our weakness He will be strong. That in our fear He gives power, that even in death, He gives Victory! That hard time you’re going through today doesn’t have to define the rest of your life. God promises that nothing is wasted when we give it to Him! Just as he restored Job’s life, He can restore yours! In the face of trouble, give God the glory.
