In the beginning....Job was a blessed man.
At the end... Job was a 'more blessed' man!
What mattered to Job in the end was God was here, and to his astonishment, had never left!
Job learned a lot, and we learn a lot from Job!
That in those storms of life...He IS there, with us!
I wonder how many of us would follow Him up that hill of Golgotha to the cross! Would WE be there for HIM in the storm?
Jobs outlook is different! He see things in a new light. He has changed.
Gone is the pride, the demand for God to speak and tell him whats up!
Now, he wears humbleness.
Trials do that don't they? They humble us!
My husband seen someone who had gone through a tremendous trial, and he said to me, "He's different. He's got a different demeanor, different attitude!!"
He seemed gentler. Yes, he was changed.
Boy it seems I'm always taking my foot out of my mouth , and God continues to work on me...and I can just assume God would say this to. me too...
You asked, ‘Who is this that made my purpose unclear by saying things that are not true?’
(Job 42:3a NCV)
Sometimes we go by what we've been taught by our parents, when it may not be the real truth! Do I study the scriptures myself?
Have I misquoted them?
Have I said things that are just not true, believing I most certainly know what I'm talking about?
You can be certain I need to speak as Job did...
Surely I spoke of things I did not understand; I talked of things too wonderful for me to know.
(Job 42:3b NCV)
Job knows what's happened, why he's changed...
I had heard rumors about You, but now my eyes have seen You. (Job 42:5 HCSB)
He learned his lesson about hear-say!
He knows the truth now!
And Job did what we all should do when we come to this realization!
Therefore I take back ⌊my words⌋ and repent in dust and ashes. (Job 42:6 HCSB)
Seek His forgiveness ! Repent!
Job repented of the terrible curse he had pronounced upon the day of his birth.
Job repented of his desire to die.
Job repented of his complaints against and challenges to God.
Job repented of talking too big about things he really didn't know!
It was double time for Job! He got blessed. Doubly blessed!
We like that part don't we!
Oh, we want double blessings like Job did?
Then lets do double time on our knees!
