Hello! Sorry For The Neglect. Read & Be Strengthen…
He said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked will I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job 1:21 MEV
The flaw in this statement is that Job didn’t know that it was actually the devil that took all of his possessions from him, not God.
God at times (I stress again, AT TIMES), allows us to go through hardships, trials, tribulations & testing times, for the purpose of showing us WHO WE REALLY ARE. God knows us more than we know ourselves, therefore He allows us to go through these tests to help us understand ourselves better.
Study to show yourself approved by God, a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 MEV
If anyone want to receive what God has to offer (the best of the best, as He is the one true creator), He will test them, to see if they will pass and consequently be approved and rewarded by Him. It’s in those moments when a person is in the gutter, in a hardship, a true struggle, the temptation and provocations that they show who they really are, before Him and before themselves.
Will God still be their God, their Father, their Shepherd, their Counsellor, their Help, their Comforter, their Confidence when they are going through the difficult moments or temptation?
God is trying to prepare you! The only time you will know who you truly are before God is when you are tested.
- God Tests;
- God Asks;
- God Approves;
- God finally rewards!
If you don’t pass the tests, you lose. If you pass, He will most definitely reward you.
Remember the cases of Job & the Lord Jesus?
One day, ponder on this, all the physical things you have, you will lose it. The only thing you will have is your soul.
Your soul is your only true possession.
I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. Job 42:5-6 MEV
