Why did I not die at birth, Come forth from the womb and expire? Job 3:11
These words that Job have spoken may seem harsh but I’m sure it’s a sorrowful emotion we may have felt at some time in our lives. Job was suffering a great loss of his family and Satan was continuing to test him. At this point Job was at his lowest point, he felt why should he have even been born.
But one thing is Job never cursed or blamed God, Job said God gives and he takes away (Job 1:21) Even though his wife told him to just curse God and die (Job 2:9), Job would not tempt The Lord. Jobs friends went on to blame Job, saying he must of sinned to cause this great sorrow in his life.
But the truth was Job was being tested by Satan and not God. Many times when tragedies happen in our lives we blame God. But its usually Satan testing us or our own sin that causes hardship for ourselves.
The Good news is eventually God repaid Job back twice from what he lost because he preserved to the end (Job 42:10) That’s why our faith is so important. During life we will encounter seasons of depression or great losses. The important thing is we remain faithful as God does have a plan for all our lives.
We can overcome as we turn to Jesus for hope and strength who has already overcome the world.God has a plan for your life and we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength in Jesus Name Amen
