Job 1:21 - John Hagee Daily Devotion (November-13-2020)

John Hagee (November-13-2020) Daily Devotion: Job 1:21 - And [Job] said: ‘Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord’.

Human nature struggles to believe that joy can exist alongside trials. Our senses and emotions live in the temporal right now, but Jesus asks us to stretch to an eternal perspective.

All that He said and did was in light of eternity. When we recognize that “our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,” we can count it all joy (II Corinthians 4:17)!

We can lift our eyes above the natural to start seeing it God’s way. And if we cannot fully grasp it yet, we can trust in a God Who is unfailingly faithful.

That is how Job survived his season of devastation. Everything that he had – his children, fortune, and health – were snatched away. His friends were no comfort, and his wife urged him to curse God and die.

In his greatest tragedy, he still responded with praise. He could not comprehend God’s generosity. He did not understand why He mysteriously took away everything He had given. But he blessed His name anyway.

When we face our darkest day, we can take joy in the fact that God blessed our yesterdays, He blesses this moment, and the blessings of tomorrow are beyond our comprehension.

Today's Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May God turn your despair into dancing and your silence into song. Blessed be the name of the Lord!

    God Bless you for your message in the early morning. Sent to me as it was meant for me to hear your message re: worry. I get overcome by a toxic workplace, and these people have worries also. But I do not attack them but they attack me in subtle ways and are just rude at times. There are many factors involved. And I find your sermons very encouraging because i focus on Christ
