How do i love Thee?
Had He not made a single man walk again,
Had He not saved any woman of disrepute;
Had He not made a single blind person see
He would be the same grand Jesus to me
Had He not brought me to America again
Had He not taken me to leaders of men
Had He not unchained South Africa, my country
He would be the same miraculous Jesus to me
Had He done not a single miracle here
Had He not walked so majestically on water
Had He not fed multitudes with two loaves only
He would be the same inimitable Jesus to me
(c) Deo, 3-28-2005
My sufferings are like a picnic compared to what God's faithful servants endured, including John the Baptist and Job. I love the Book of Job not because I understand all of it, but in spite of not understanding this wonderful man's story. The same can be said about my love for the Bible as a complete Scripture. What I do not understand does not affect my faith or love for Jesus. But this much I can say: What God tested in Abraham, he was willing to do Himself. He allowed Isaac to avoid being sacrificed; He allowed Jesus to be sacrificed. We see, EVERY DAY, the gold, the wealth, the jewels in this sacrifice of Jesus's body. What Job cried and wept for, over which he tore his hair and felt shattered by his three friends, Job and we get through Jesus our Savior and intermediary. The devil is always at work; Jesus made it easier for us to enter Heaven because He will intercede with God on our behalf. This is what Job wanted ... but his attitude of humility before the whirlwind of God's voice, allowed Job to get his rewards many times over.
I am no Job. Job has not been reproduced or duplicated. Job's faith and obedience to God is singular. Glory to the Heavens that Jesus can intercede for me when God is angry with me! Praise His holy name. Alelujah!
