I pray you are doing well. I am grateful to GOD for another opportunity to share something special with you. Have you read the other blog posts? If not, I strongly suggest you go back and read them studiously. This helps you get what we are saying going forward, thank you.
Worshipping GOD is something every believer in CHRIST loves to do. I know when GOD does something extra ordinary for us, we are full of praise and worship to GOD.
But, what happens when our expectations are not met? Or when something bad happens? Or the enemy attacks someone we love and we are unable to help or save them? Or we lose something good GOD gave which we thought would be forever? What then?
Times of pain and disappointment, like that which Job experienced, are times when we are less inclined to give GOD praise, but those are exactly the times to do what Job did, he worshipped. At a time when he lost everything: his wealth, children and health, Job worshiped GOD.
That would seem contrary unless you understood the circumstances surrounding the suffering. Your enemy and my enemy, satan, wants the worship we give to GOD. Whenever we worship GOD, satan does everything possible to ruin our lives to stop our worship to GOD.
Job said no. Job chose, at the time of his greatest loss, a loss great enough to be recorded in the WORD of GOD, to worship GOD. Job was telling satan, "no." I won't worship you. I still, still, still, choose to worship GOD. Eventually, GOD restored everything to Job and even increased him.
If you are in a tough place, play some worship songs. The tears will come. Let them mix with the worship. The pain will come. Serve it alongside the worship. Worship GOD when you feel like it and when you do not. The day GOD will bring you out, it will seem ordinary but GOD, Who made the Heavens and the earth, and controls times and seasons, will surely turn things around for your good.
Remember, things are not always good, but they work TOGETHER for our good. Worship. Cry. Then worship again. and don't ever stop worshipping JESUS.
GOD is faithful. HE wipes every tear, but if there were no tears, what would GOD wipe? Tears and pain must never stop your worship. Never let problems take your worship. Ever. GOD bless you.
