Remain Faithful ~ God Will Bring It To Pass

by | Mar 22, 2014

Job 8: 3, 5-7   “Does God pervert justice?  Or does the Almighty pervert the right?  If you will seek God and plead with the Almighty for mercy, if you are pure and upright, surely then he will rouse himself for you and restore your rightful habitation.  And though your beginning was small, your latter days will be very great.”

Job’s friend was actually making a mockery of him because he was certain that Job had done something wrong for all those things to happen to him.  Job was living life right and doing his best to follow God and Satan hit him from every side trying to get him to curse God.  Job may have gotten frustrated with life and all that happened but he didn’t curse God.

How about you?  Do you feel as though you have tried to do everything right and yet things just keep getting worse with no relief in sight?  Trust me I have been there and it is tough to not get frustrated with it all but the words that Bildad spoke were true in the sense that if we will just trust God and hold tight to Him and continue to do what is right God will come through and He will make your latter days better than the beginning.

Seek God today with all your heart and hold onto him knowing that He sees what you are dealing with and what you are facing and He will get you through to the other side.  Remain faithful regardless of all that goes on around you and hold onto your hope in God with all that you have, don’t allow Satan to rob you of it.

If you have “friends” that are not helping your situation by being negative or dragging you down it may be time to distance yourself a bit until you can see straight again.  Choose godly people you can hang with and talk with that will remind you of the truth.  The best is yet to come!

    Thank you for these gentle, yet powerful reminders..yet, as always perfect timing..The situation I am currently facing is the person who is most negative and dragging me down happens to be my mother. This has torn my heart in two and recently I made a decision to distance myself from her because I found myself unable to withstand the negativity and maintain the peace that I believe God wants me to walk in. Her negativity causes me to feel anxious and fearful and sometimes even depresses me, which seems also to cause health issues in the form of stomach problems, headaches and sleepless nights, I want so much to walk in God’s truth and hang on to all of His precious promises- but it seems whenever I speak to my mother I lose my focus and feel caught up in the negative thinking. Her 76th birthday is coming up soon and this has really been a burden for me because if the distance is yet again allowed to be crossed- I may end up back at square one. I have tried many times to talk to her about it and she seems to try to change- but falls right back into the old pattern of thinking. She is a Christian and this makes it even more difficult to deal with because if I even bring up “God”, she becomes very defensive and tells me that “I don’t need to tell her about God and that she maintains a close relationship with Him”. Any input is very welcome as I am feeling very torn. Is it okay in God’s eyes to distance yourself from even your 76 year old mother? It feels so harsh and cold and I find that I criticize myself for not being stronger and able to overcome her negativity. I think if only I could be stronger and not allow her negativity to affect me- or if only I were a stronger Christian then her “blasts” would not affect me- or if I were more secure in God’s truth- then it would not affect me. Thank you for allowing me to share this.. Somehow just knowing others are out there, possibly going through something similar- seems to help. Blessings to all..
