Job Comforted || Part 3

Job 42:11 imageJob had victory!

His family and friends came to eat with him and comfort him.

Having a community is vital in healing and recovery.

We need like-minded people to surround us. We need to be lifted up in support of our healing. We need the community to pray for our recovery and healing.

In that, we, in turn, find victory, healing, and recovery also.

Are you seeking forgiveness, recovery, healing, and victory?

Follow the list of tips in part 2. Find a tribe/community to lift you up. Comment here and let us know how Yahweh is working in your life in this area.

Me? Yes, I am also in this pickle. We all need a tribe. That’s one of the major purposes of this ministry. The LORD has put this upon my heart. Please pray that I obey His calling and follow Him in this.

Job Prayed || Part 2

Job 42:10 imageYahweh isn’t very happy with Job’s friends for not saying what is right about Him. They are instructed to go to Job and offer a burnt offering for themselves, and that Job would pray for them. Yahweh will then spare the friends from punishment for their foolishness. So, they did as they were instructed to. Job prayed and Yahweh listened. Job was rewarded with success again. In fact, Yahweh gave Job twice as much as he had owned before. Read about it below.

Job 42
7 After the Lord had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not said what is right about me, as my servant Job did. 8 Now take seven bulls and seven male sheep, and go to my servant Job, and offer a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will listen to his prayer. Then I will not punish you for being foolish. You have not said what is right about me, as my servant Job did.” 9 So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite did as the Lord said, and the Lord listened to Job’s prayer. 10 After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord gave him success again. The Lord gave Job twice as much as he had owned before.

That’s not how we are today, is it? We have to be dragged, kicking, and screaming the whole way.

Why is it we’re discontent and ill (spiritually, mentally, physically)?

What was it that gave Job forgiveness, and healing?

Here’s what Job did:

  1. He listened to Yahweh.
  2. He obeyed Yahweh.
  3. He prayed over his friends.

Are you seeking healing and forgiveness? Refer to the list of what Job did. Put those things into action. Watch the blessings come spilling in; like Job.

“As we seek the Lord for healing, let us also ask Him to reveal any areas in our lives that require repentance and forgiveness.” – Jack Hayford

Job Answered || Part 1

Job 42:1 imageThis is part of a multipart series. After the series is finished I’ll come back here and create an index for each part.

This series is going to focus on finding healing in repentance and prayer.

For part one we’ll focus on Job answering Yahweh.

Heres Job’s answer to Yahweh in verses 2-6

2 “I know that you (Yahweh) can do all things and that no plan of yours can be ruined. 3 You (Yahweh) asked, ‘Who is this that made my purpose unclear by saying things that are not true?’ Surely I (Job) spoke of things I did not understand; I talked of things too wonderful for me to know. 4 You (Yahweh) said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak. I will ask you questions, and you must answer me.’ 5 My (Job’s) ears had heard of you before, but now my eyes have seen you. 6 So now I hate myself; I will change my heart and life. I will sit in the dust and ashes.”

Job realized his utter brokenness. He realized that he was being selfish. He turned the selfishness into hate to change his heart and life by sitting in the dust and ashes. How much lower can one get?

When Yahweh showed Himself to Job, it caused Job to reflect on his life and how he’d been living. It caused him to realize the gravity of the situation and how utterly broken he was.

We need to look in the mirror, while Yahweh stands right by us, and realize our utter brokenness and how much we need Yahweh.

How do you see yourself? Are you utterly broken? Have you been living selfishly?

Take stock of your life. Have a conversation with Yahweh. Surrender it all to Him.

Me: I’m being humbled daily at my utter selfishness about my living situation. I’ve been set straight and in no uncertain terms am I to complain about it anymore. Yahweh is in control and is handling things. Thank You Yahweh!
