Scripture Text:Job 1:1-22
Dr. Dann Masters addresses the age old question of people, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” In this message he examines how and why trouble fell on a man who certainly didn’t expect it and was uncertain why it came to him at all.
He addresses these main points within the message:
1.Trouble Is No Respecter of People (vss. 1-5)
2. Trouble Grows From One Root (vss. 6-12)
3. Trouble is Just A Blink Away (vss. 13-16)
In verses 20-22 Job humbled himself and mourned the sin around him. He confessed his weakness and personal inability to handle life’s trouble by his own power. He makes a great statement of faith, all things come from God and are not to be ignored. God gives, God takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord…”Throughout all this, Job did not sin or blame God for anything.”
Do you have that faith, that conviction that life is a gift and it an only be appreciated and satisfying if you fully rest in the arms of the Lord? If not, you will fall and not rise again in the storms of life. But if you do trust Him, you may fall, but He will lift you up to win the race.
