As I was thinking of what my message could be this week, a friend of mined said what I was going through reminded her of the book of Job. You will see why at the end.
There was a man that was so strong in his faith, this man was called Job. Nothing could shake him..
Satan Allowed to Test Job
8 And the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?” 9 Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for no reason?
Satan Takes Job’s Property and Children
13 Now there was a day when his sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, 14 and there came a messenger to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding beside them, 15 and the Sabeans fell upon them and took them and struck down the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” 16 While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” 17 While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “The Chaldeans formed three groups and made a raid on the camels and took them and struck down the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” 18 While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, 19 and behold, a great wind came across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young people, and they are dead, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”
Even after losing all this….. Job never curse God.
22 In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong.
Now here’s my story…. after 4 surgeries I had been walking on my own for over a yr. Then all of a sudden there was something wrong with my leg again.
Now I’m like Job nothing can shake my faith. The hardware in my leg broke again. That is what cause me not to walk again. It has been 2 months and no Dr. wants to work on me. I have to go to a trauma center.
Satan has tried everything to shake me up! this time, just like Job, it included a lot of pain. I AM TO STRONG FOR THAT.
An just like Job, as you know he had a happy ending, and so will I.
The Lord Restores Job’s Fortunes
10 And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
I will too. I’m glad no Dr’s wanted to work on me. God had a better plan. It was USC. I will walk again. Thank you God!
