Job 42:7-16 (12) – The LORD blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. (NIV)
At a World War II German death camp, a young Jew named Rachel endured great hardship by being made to work in the snow with inadequate clothing. She was in shock as the Nazis killed many of her friends and families. However, one day, the German soldiers left, and Rachel didn’t know that the war was over. Shortly, the American soldiers arrived to free the prisoners, and among them was a young soldier who held the door for Rachel to escape. The soldier stayed in touch with Rachel after she relocated, and they fell in love and got married.
Rachel moved from slavery and the point of death to being honourably married. This is what God can do! He is the originator of great turnarounds. He can take the most horrible situation in your life and make something glorious out of it. Whenever you go through hard times, remember there is a God who can change your story, such as He did for Job in today’s Bible reading. Job had trouble and lost everything he had ever owned, but God gave him back more than he had before.
Beloved, I encourage you to be inspired by the story of Rachel and learn from Job to know that what you are going through is not meant to break you. Instead, they are stepping stones to your great turnaround. Hold on and have faith!
Hymn: Jesus Loves Even Me – Philip P. Bliss (1870)
1. Father, please exchange my garment of shame and sorrows for that of joy and peace (mention).
2. Lord Jesus, turn my setback into a stepping stone to greater heights.
1. Holy Spirit, fill me with supernatural gifts that will proclaim Your glory in my generation.
2. Lord Jesus, please help me to see and value the good in others.
3. Father, as individuals, the Church, family, and nation, please surprise us in every good work.
