Job was also struck with sore boils all over his body. I imagine them popping at will, puss draining out and then returning minutes later. Oh the pain, the anguish. The dejection. Job had reason to doubt but his righteous thinking made him realize that it was foolish to accept only God’s good and not accept God’s “bad”. Job was weary of life. Yet, In all these, I imagine he asked: “What is God doing now?” He knew that God was working – and He was right. God blessed Job with much more than he had before his troubles. He restored His children, health and wealth. Now you see clearly what God was doing? Today, this story inspires millions of people to hold on in times of adversity.
Do You Believe God is Working?
Haven’t you noticed that the darkest moments is just before the dawn? That the light at the end of the tunnel is just after the darkest and longest bend? A common theme you may have observed in the biblical stories shared throughout this series is this: “Through the demise, God is working”. While you are confident about the positive outcome, you are unperturbed by it. Really, it does not matter what the outcome is. Good or bad, you will stand with Him who is sure, who has proven Himself over and over again. You will stand with Jesus Christ. Won’t you?
And said , Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave , and the LORD hath taken away ; blessed be the name of the LORD. – Job 1:21
