“When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before!”
Job in his suffering went to the altar of God.
Do you experience unbearable suffering? Think about Job.
And consider the suffering of ourLord Jesus Christ. He endured being forsaken and he suffered a shameful death on the cross.
Yet He was sinless.
He yielded to His Father’s will. He conquered death.
Job went to the altar of God in his suffering, and he forgave his friends and prayed for them. He experienced grace, forgiveness, family, friends, wealth and honour.
God promises to reward through trials all who are obedient to Him.
We are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ.
Job came out of his trouble a better person. Refined as gold in a fiery furnace. So can we too.
Trials work for us not against us when we trust in Jesus.
In our trials and suffering we trust in you, dear Father God. You will transform our suffering not to earthly glory like Job but heavenly glory.
We praise you through our suffering and know that you have a purpose for us; a truly glorious purpose when we obey you. Let us rejoice in times of trial.
Thank you Jesus.
All praise and glory to you O Lord most High .
And may our Father God bless you mightily in everything you do, everything you say and in everywhere you go.
