Job 2:10 (NLT) But Job replied, “You talk like a foolish woman. Should we accept only good things from the hand of God and never anything bad?” So in all this, Job said nothing wrong.
Do you have a bad outlook on life and in your life? Perhaps you’ve taken on that role for yourself!
If you are busy looking for all the things that can go wrong, you are sure to miss the blessings God has prepared for you. Besides, life is too short to dwell on the bad things only. I am sharing my heart today, can you hear me?
As people of God our hope is in our Savior, no matter what our circumstance, the Lord walks beside us, the Lord fights our battles and even goes before us in everything. Our hope is not in the arm of flesh, it rests on the mighty and powerful arm of God. I challenge you today to take your eyes off the bad things in your life and focus them on the Lord.
Let’s remember the words of that old hymn: “Count your blessings, name them one by one, count your blessings, see what God has done!” I declaring today that we have a Good God even if our situation is bad!
