DON’T CHARGE GOD FOOLISHLY

August 28, 2021

We all know the story of Job how God told Satan about Job’s outstanding qualities, which caused Satan, with God’s permission, to target him with calamities. In one day, Job’s ten children were killed in a wind storm, the raiding Sabeans killed his servants and took the oxen and the assess they were watching, a firestorm killed his sheep and the servants watching them, and the Chaldeans captured his camels, and slew the servants that were watching them.

What was Job’s response, he tore his mantle and shaved his head which both were a sign of mourning, and then bowed down and worshipped God. Job did not sin nor charged God foolishly. Job uttered this statement, “Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Job went from being prosperous and having his quiver filled to poverty and no living children in one day. Nevertheless, without the help of a Bible, commentaries, or a spiritual leader, Job understood the nature of God; thus, he would not fault God for the turmoil and suffering in his life.  Later, neither did he sin with his mouth when God allowed Satan to attack his body and his wife suggested he curse God and die.

Yes, as you continue to read the book of Job, you will find Job questioned why these calamities occurred; however, when God finally responded to him, He did not tell Job why. While we are yet alive, for those of us that have the why question, we may not get an answer, and when we get to heaven, the answer may no longer be important enough for us to seek one.

Presently, our world is in crisis. Every nation is experiencing problems, and its’ citizens are feeling despair. People, young and old, are dying unexpectantly and families are grievously mourning, and the spirit of depression lingers in the air. Consequently, many who experienced trauma have begun to slander and talk negatively about God. They can not understand how a loving God could allow misfortune to happen. Questioning believers have thrown out all the scriptures that acknowledge that everyone will experience pain and heartbreaks in their lifetime. They have forgotten our only answer is that God is with us and will sustain us in every situation.

So, as I come to a close of this blog, I encourage you to follow Job’s example and don’t charge God foolishly but remember in the end, all things worked together for his good, God blessed him doubly, and God can do the same for you.
