Do not panic
We can all identify with Job a man of faith who loves his family his fortune and his health a man that praises God worships God prays for his family but he still had trials and tribulation . We do know that it rains on the just and the unjust, but when it rains on the unjust God is in the rain with us. Although God allowed these trails to happen to Job there was still a limit. Yes God allowed it to happened but He also gave a limited to what the devil could do. So if you are a child of God, He will not put more on you that you can handle. By yourself. Let God help you to carry your load. We can identify with Job.
God is bigger than our fears and better than our faith. Consider the Monumental trials of Job.
He lost his family and his fortune. His wife turned against him, suggesting that he curse God and die.
Friends came to visit him and became caustic critics. They blamed Job for his problems. They said he must have sinned. But bad things happened to good people. What can we learn from Job.
Job finally learned that nothing takes God by surprise. Here is Job’s amazing reaction to his tragedy.
“ The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord.
Because Job did not panic and curse God. Years later he is rewarded for his faithfulness.
He was rewarded with seven more sons and three beautiful daughters. He received double what he had lost. Job’s future was greater than his past. The Lord blessed Job beyond his imagination.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within us.
