His wife said to him, “You are still as faithful as ever, aren’t you? Why don’t you curse God and die?” Job answered, “You are talking nonsense! When God sends us something good, we welcome it. How can we complain when he sends us trouble?” Even in all this suffering Job said nothing against God.
Job 2:9-10 GNT
Faith in God is the basis for our relationship with God as Christians. Simply put, faith is the divine capacity to believe and trust that God is who His Word says He is and He can do all that His Word says He can do regardless of the prevalent circumstances.
In short, the love of God for you and His ability to do all things is not defined by your circumstances but by what His Word reveals.
While God uses various trials to test, reveal and proof the genuineness of your faith like goldsmith uses fire to refine his gold in order that it may be found to the admiration, honour and glory at the end. On the contrary,, the enemy will contrive to rob you of your righteousness, integrity, faithfulness and relationship with God through temptations to seek escape route out of the “fire”.
The outcome of the test is determined by your determination to still hold on to God, trusting Him to help you negotiate the inescapable treacherous slopes in the journey of life.
The victory that overcomes the world is your faith in God through Jesus Christ, don’t lose it! If you hold steadfastly to your faith in Christ Jesus you will emerge victorious at last and your present situation will surely end in praise. May the LORD God help you to be faithful till the end in Jesus name. Good morning and do have a blessed worship service.
