I was talking to my friend about church and asked her a question about here different experiences in churches and she said THEY ALL SPEAK ON THE SAME THING. So I asked what she meant and she said ALL OF THEM TALK ABOUT FINANCIAL BLESSINGS. I replied , there is more to GOD's walk than financial blessings. When JOB had his possessions taken you think GOD said WELL , HE'S BEEN THROUGH A LOT, I AM GOING TO GIVE IT BACK . What's often rejected in the church today is the value of faithfulness. In all Job went through he remained faithful
In the first book of JOB his cattle was taken , his family was destroyed , his home was as well but in verse 20 JOB fell and worship . In verse 21 he said NAKED I CAME FROM THE WOMB AND NAKED SHALL I RETURN . THE LORD GIVES AND THE LORD TAKES AWAY . In JOB 2 satan afflicted JOB with painful sores on his body . As he went through the pain his wife came to him and said ARE YOU STILL MAINTAINING INTEGRITY ? CURSE GOD AND DIE In Job 2 , 10 she was called a foolish woman . In all the plaques that job endured he never curse GOD .
JOB , DAVID , and many others in the bible were not very rich . Job was but when his things were taken he was poor and had not much but they all revealed the value of faithfulness . They showed that faithfulness to GOD is worth more than money . With faithfulness in GOD nothing else matters . It shows that he is the center of your life .
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
