No Matter What Bless The Lord
September 22, 2023
"And said, 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 1:21
There are times when good things happen to bad people, and it just does not seem right that good people must experience good things happening to bad people. There are times when bad things happen to good people. No matter how good we are to others, there are times when bad things will still happen. In all that we go through in life it is foolish to blame The Lord when we go through tough times. Job was going through a rough time in his life, and he lost everything, but He did not blame The Lord, on the contrary he blessed The Lord. The Scripture reminds us that with all that Job was going through he said, naked I came into the world and naked I shall leave, the Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord. I encourage you today to bless The Lord no matter what you are going through. In this life you will experience some lost, but The Lord is still good to you. Everything you have is because The Lord gave it to you. There will be good and bad days, but through them all The Lord is still good and worthy to be praised. Through thick and thin bless The Lord. Through your ups and your downs, your struggles and your fears, bless the name of The Lord. Have enough faith in God knowing that He gave it to you, and if He takes it away from you, He must have something better for you. No matter what comes or what goes in my life I will bless The Lord for He is good to me. I know The Lord loves me and He cares about me, this is why I am so sure, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord, I thank you for every blessing you have poured into my life. I thank you for loving and keeping me, and no matter what I gain or lose, I know you still love me, and I will bless your name. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
