There are times when a person’s world falls apart. In one day, Job lost everything he owned including his ten children. Though his suffering was extreme, he still found the inner strength and grace to worship God by saying, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and The Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.” What an awesome way to worship God!
Job’s suffering was by no means unique. Being a true believer does not automatically exclude a person from trials and temptations. Suffering has enormous power and people react differently under intense suffering. While some may be overwhelmed and become cynical and bitter, others may emerge from their experiences transformed to be more resolute in the faith they have in the providential and sovereign God.
James in 5: 11 speaks of Job’s perseverance, “As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.” Many people would have felt insulted by the word of Jesus Christ to the gentile woman who sought healing for her daughter. Rather than being offended, she worshipped the Lord and received an answer to her petition (Matthew 15: 21 – 28). She also became one of the two persons whose faith is referred to in the Bible as “great.” If you were in her situation, what would your reaction be to such an insult?
Challenge God with your worship today and everyday, and you will be amazed at the result.
Job 1: 20 “At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship.”
Lord, may Your praise never become sour in my mouth, throughout my life. Amen.
Thank You Jesus.
