‘In all this, Job did not sin nor charge Yehovah with wrong’ Job 1:22 (NKJV)
How do you view the trials and hardships in your life? The Bible tells us that all things work together for good if you love Yehovah and are called by Him. When life is at its worst, do you believe that to be true? Take the story of Job, and view it from Yehovah’s perspective. It becomes then, not the story of a man who lost everything, but about Yehovah who restored all that the devil had stolen, and more besides. Not about a man losing faith in Yehovah, but a man maintaining his faith throughout the greatest of trials. It’s not about a man in the pit of despair, but about Yehovah who redeemed his life from the darkness. It is not about a man being overcome, but a man who is victorious because of his trust in Yehovah. It is not about Job’s sickness, but about Yehovah’s ability to heal whatever curse the devil sends. It is not about a bad devil, but a great Yehovah. It’s not about a man’s faith in Yehovah, but about Yehovah’s faith in man. It is not about the devil’s ability to inflict unspeakable suffering on a human, but about Yehovah’s willingness to restore every loss. It is about victory when facing the greatest trials; about the ability of Yehovah to help his children overcome the worst of life’s circumstances; about Yehovah’s power working in your life to overcome your greatest fears and worst nightmares; providing for your needs and forgiving your failings. Ask yourself; do you believe that Yehovah is great? Does your faith grow stronger through trials, or do you need a change of perspective?
