So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. (Job 42:12 KJV)
No matter the stress, the pain and the trials that you may go through, what or who God has for you, is for you. Nobody can change that! Nobody can stop that!
I listened quite attentively to the young lady speak. She couldn't understand why she was going through all these life trials. She was questioning where she went wrong in life. She said that she was tired of hearing that things would get better and nothing was changing. Tears actually fell from her eyes.
I let her just let it out and then I said, "What or Who God has For You is For You! You are multi-talented and when God is ready, you will shine as the STAR you were meant to be. Every dream and passion that you have that falls under God's will, WILL come to pass."
She smiled a bit. I continued, "You see, God is allowing you to go through all of this so that when he delivers and elevates you, you would have no doubt in your mind as to who was responsible for the promotion you received. That's just what he did with JOB." She thanked me and walked away happy, smiling and re-motivated.
I was able to see this young lady several months after. She approached me with a smile that could light the world. I listened again this time. She said, "God's working it out. He hasn't finished doing it yet, but he's doing it gradually. I can begin to see that ALL GOD HAS FOR ME IS FOR ME. Things are gradually changing and the blessings are beginning to trickle in." She said, "when I look back now, I see that all my trials were just a life lesson to prepare me for my promotion just as you said."
I wished her all the best and she went happily along. Another job of motivating and encouraging someone was complete.
What ever you are going through now is just a temporary test. You will not be in it forever. The test that you took in Primary or High School, are you still taking it? NO! It's finished and you've used the results that you got from that test to help you to reach where you are now - RIGHT?
It's the very same thing with Jesus. He's testing you now and the results you get on the test will cause you to move forward with a stronger, positive, optimistic mentality as you face your tomorrows. God hasn't forgotten you! He never forgot JOB!
Job went through a hard, hard time as Bible history explains. He lost everything. He was down to his lowest. The advice he got from his wife was to CURSE God and die. Imagine the frustration. Many things stand out about Job. He remained patient. He waited on God. Job never gave up though. He always held on to his God, his faith and his HOPE.
At the end of his temporary trial, he received DOUBLE. God not only delivered him, but promoted him and gave him his due share. HIS FAIR SHARE FOR ALL!
Your time is coming too. Don't give up. Keep on Trusting. Don't be jealous of anyone. You will drive that car too. You will get some land and build or buy a house too. You will be able to have a bank book with some extra on it to move through life, help yourself and others too. God wishes above all things that we would prosper and be in good health. (3 John 1:2)
Have faith. Have hope. What or who God has for you, is for you!
