What is your reason for denying the faith of our Lord Jesus? He who touches the plough and looks back deserves not the Kingdom of God. Who are you? What did you have? What did you lose? What have you gained after?
Have you considered job? The richest and most righteous man in His days (Job1:1). He had 7000 sheep, 3000 camel, 500 oxen, and 500 female donkeys. Many servants, sons and daughters with each child having a mansion. But just in a day he lost all his possessions. Not to end there, he had sores all over and was reduced to the worst of man; scrapping Himself with broken pottery, betrayed by friends and family.
It’s normal to be angry with God because we are human beings, but in exercising your rage or venting your spleen on the Lord God, be careful you don’t blaspheme. In his pain he rebuked the woman he loved Job 2:10) – “must we receive only good things from God?” If you understand what you’re in for, you’ll rejoice. The walk of a Christian is not an assured smooth journey. He said, “You’ll face many tribulation”. And Apostle Paul encourages us to count it all joy when these flimsy troubles come upon us (James 1:2-4).
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. After the test, you will be made complete: lacking nothing. In the end, after 9 month, Job’s health was restored, as well as acquiring a double portion of all that he had possessed. If you’ve not reached the level of Job’s possession then your suffering is no news, because even the rich are suffering. Be humble and fix your eyes on Jesus. Trust in Jesus, that’s all.
