Job Is an Example to This Day as Someone Who Has Suffered Numerous Losses, Yet He Did Not Abandon His Faith.
A significant challenge of prosperity with God is to maintain trust amid adversity. Also, to face tribulations with patience, without complaint, and persevering even when situations seem unfavorable.
Job is an example to this day as someone who has suffered numerous losses, yet he did not abandon his faith. In the end, God restored everything he had lost.
Job’s life exemplifies those who suffered losses but did not give up their faith because of their trust in God.
“To this day, his testimony encourages and strengthens. Plus, it also shows that a time will come when your situation will change for you, just like it did for Job. It will be a testimony showing that God is alive and He is the same as in the past,” explains Bishop Jadson Santos.
Job’s friends and even his wife threw words of doubt. People who said they were of God.
“Be careful because even this kind of person may pour a bucket of cold water into your faith. That is part of the turning point in your life. Pray for them, the competitors, those who persecute you, those who want their evil,” teaches the Bishop.
Job was well-defined in his faith. He overcame emotions in the most challenging moment and didn’t complain. So, Be patient and learn how to wait.
“I think only of the present. Many people are impatient and cannot endure when struggles appear. They want everything in their own time and in their way. Understand that God works differently. Persevere because the situation will change. All the heroes of faith had to go through this process,” Bishop Jadson concluded.
“Indeed, we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord—that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.” (James 5:11)
