Wednesday Word 1/25/2012


“And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.” ~Job 1:21

The Lord does what He pleases in this world and in our lives. He knows us way more than we know ourselves. Many Christians recognize this Sovereign God when things are working out in their favor, but turn on Him when their situations change. God needs less Christians on the bandwagon and more of us to really trust Him!

Job recognized that the same Lord that was with him during his good times was the same loving, true, just, holy , and righteous God that was with him during his trial. Our love and allegiance to Christ should not be based on circumstance, but simply in the fact that He is our Lord. Trust that when everything seems so unmanageable, God is still sovereign. No matter what your current situation may be; He is working it out for your good. He does this in His perfect ways and His perfect timing.
