Sunday's Scripture #3

Open Bible Pictures, Images and Photos

Job 5:17 (New International Version)

17 "Blessed is the man whom God corrects;
so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty."

True, he wounds, but he also dresses the wound;
the same hand that hurts you, heals you.
From one disaster after another he delivers you;
no matter what the calamity, the evil can't touch you—

All this so that you may never want as long as you live, but rather live as long as you want. Whether it's good or bad results, feel blessed that God is even moving in your life. The Lord works in mysterious ways, so your blessings may not come the way you want them to, or when you want them to.. but surely they are on its way, especially for those who believe because "all things work together for good to them that love God" (Romans 8:28) A very wise lady, Ivy, once told me surround yourself with people who complement your upward trajectory, not complicate it. Don't say the Lord's name in vain when things have turned sour, because just as he put you through the hardships, he will bring you out of it. How can you be made stronger in his eyes without going through a little adversity? You want muscles of faith? Then you cant keep benching those puny 5 lb weights anymore. Take on some real work and strengthen your relationship with Him.
