Having Faith in God
23 Jan'19 5
Having Faith in GodThe first chapter of the book of Job tells us how Job was a faithful man of God. God blessed him with seven sons, servants and much wealth. Satan challenged God that the protection and riches He has given Job was the reason for his unswerving commitment to Him. And so God gave the devil the chance to test Job to the highest point. Despite all the negative things the devil brought in the life of Job, Job remained steadfast and victorious in the end (
As followers of Christ, the devil will bring a lot of misfortune in our lives just to test our faith in God. And this is where we have to stand strong and prove to Satan and the entire world that we are true children of God. In times of our extreme troubles, people may suggest various solutions to our problems, even including possible solutions that contradict the clear words of Scripture.
It is important for us to learn that as Christians, we need to be firm in our principles no matter our situation in life. The Lord has promised never to forsake or leave us (
Beloved, whatever the problem or difficulty we encounter, our God knows, He sees and has a better solution for us if only we can trust in Him and wait for His own timing. Even as God finally answered the prayers of Job, He continues to answer the prayers of His faithful children who trust in Him and wait for Him. It is in our waiting on Him through prayers and a reflection of the Scriptures that He perfects our characters.
