Job 42:12 And the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; and he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she-asses.
When God blesses you, people will stand amazed and SHUT UP!
No where in the Bible will we ever find that God promises His children that life would be a bed of roses. We are constantly reminded directly and indirectly though, that God will be with us through good times and bad. All of us face trials, tribulations and hardships. All of us know about how it feels to have people GOSSIP about us and spread lies especially when they don't know the truth.
I've been through that experience many times in my life and I made it. I've been through HELL on EARTH several times and with God's GRACE and CONSTANT provision I survived and continue to survive. Thus, I want to offer you this reassurance. No trial that you are currently going through will last FOREVER. One day soon, it will come to an END, especially if you learn from your mistakes and do things DIFFERENTLY. Once you continue to trust God, pray, read your Bible and keep the faith, SOONER, rather than later, you will come out triumphant and TREMENDOUSLY BLESSED!
Actually, when God blesses you, the very same people who were gossiping about you and spreading their lies about you, will stand amazed and SHUT UP!
It was the very same thing with a great Bible character named Job. He was a man after God's own heart and trial struck. Severe trial. Job lost EVERYTHING. His family, his animals and his wealth. To make matters worst, instead of the wife whom he had loved and supported all his life stick by her man and encourage and support him, her advice to her husband Job was to CURSE GOD AND DIE. Job 2:9 Then his wife said to him, "Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God, and die."
This is probably one of the reasons I'm still carefully praying and searching for a life partner. I honestly prefer to stay SINGLE than to marry a lady who puts on a SHOW but has no real inner strength and faith in God when life trials come. As an anointed Man of God, I would need a gem who would not just dress up and fulfill our sexual desires, but she must also be able to feed my soul with the GOSPEL and ENCOURAGEMENT and SUPPORT at times as I do the same for her. Please help me pray too. Thanks in advance. (sweeteye)
We must never rush into LOVE and MARRIAGE or we'll REGRET it. This thing called LOVE and MARRIAGE is serious business. Pray, date, meet people, and "TRY," just "TRY" to get into their hearts and find out the type of person they are and put them in God's hands and ask him to bless the relationship. Without God in your relationship, nothing will ever work out.
Let's get back to our devotional. Job doesn't heed his wife's negative instructions but decides that come what may, he will remain faithful and true to his God even though the severe trials at times causes him to question Him.
To cut a long story short, God didn't forget his humble and faithful servant Job. In Job 42:12, God turns things around and shuts up all his gossipers and haters. Job 42:12 And the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; and he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she-asses.
God blessed Job with DOUBLE. He gave him fairer daughters and a fresh national, regional and global respect. Everyone was talking about the wise servant of God who HAD IT ALL, LOST IT ALL AND GAINED IT ALL IN DOUBLE PORTION AGAIN.
Friend, the very same thing can and will happen to you too once you DO NOT lose faith. God will turn things around for you very, very, very soon. When he does, when God blesses you, people will stand amazed and SHUT UP!
Don't give up! Hope is definitely ahead for you! Just continue to HOLD ON.
