And I was reminded of Job's testimony when far worse had happened.
21 And he said, “Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”
22 In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong.In this really is the sovereignty of God at its best. If God is entirely for me and not against me. If He governs the oceans, the waves, the skies, the horses, and chariots, then why would one's car (or lack thereof) worry me at all? Rather, is it not true that all this happened for my good? All this happened for His glory? That whatever mistakes I may have made (and I'm sure that's many), they were all intended for good?
Indeed! I do not boast in horses, or in possessions, or in influence, or in power, but my boast is in the fact that my name is written in the book of life, and a God who was willing to send His Son to the death for me, will now say, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."
The Lord is my portion, I will hope in Him.
