Blessed Be The Name of The Lord
“Then Job arose, tore his robe, and shaved his head; and he fell to the ground and worshiped.” – Job 1:20
Hi friends! Thank you for reading and showing your support. I appreciate you!
We all experience hardships in this life – we grieve the loss of loved ones, we experience health issues, we even sometimes have trouble on our jobs. But how we handle it makes a big difference while we’re going through it. Job provides us a great example of how we should handle life’s difficulties.
Job was struck by Satan and lost his 10 children, his cattle, and his health. There’s no doubt that he mourned and became depressed. Job cried out, “May the day perish on which I was born” (Job 3:3). He was in such despair that he cursed the day on which he was born.
Yet, in his mourning and in his despair, Job fell to the ground and worshipped God (Job 1:20). He exclaimed, “Blessed be the name of the Lord” (Job 1:21).
Friends, that’s how we should be when we experience challenges in life. No matter how dark things may be, no matter how much we despair, we must still worship God. The Bible says, “In everything, give thanks” ( 1 Thessalonians 5:18). It’s the will of God that we should.
We need to learn how to take our minds off of our problems and praise God for the good that we have in our lives. Even if we think we can’t find any good, we should worship the Lord, simply because of who He is.
Whatever you’re going through, it’s not bigger than our God. So let’s be like Job, in that even though he lost almost everything he had, he still worshipped God. We can worship God in the midst of our trials.
Blessed be the name of the Lord.
