The LORD restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the LORD increased all that Job had twofold. Job 42:10
As we come to the end of the book of Job, we see God has blessed Job “twofold” meaning twice as much, for his obedience and faith through his suffering and tribulation.
We remember earlier Job was so depressed that he cursed the day he was born. Job thought God had forgotten him and left him to die. But as God demonstrated, he never left or forsook Job at all. We remember Satan was the one who was testing and tormenting Job, not God. Even through all the pain and suffering , Job never cursed or blamed God. And his faith and obedience was rewarded.
So how does this story relate to us? What about our pain and suffering? Will God redeem us twofold?
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
God can take our darkest hour and turn into a victory! Just as God did with Job, he is still delivering us today. We have already received the greatest gift of all, eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ! It’s important that regardless of what trials or tribulation you are going through today, that God is causing things to work for your good!
Satan might be attacking you today, but God has the final say, and through faith and obedience like Job, you are also blessed twofold in Jesus Name Amen!
