In the 42nd chapter of Job’s book, what happened after he prayed for his three friends? How did he acknowledge God’s greatness? God turned Job’s attention to his three friends, accusing them of falsehood in representing him. Job forgave his friends and was restored to a greater place than he had been before his time of grief. Job 42:10 tells us that he received twice as much as he had earlier. God blessed Job tremendously!
Was Satan instrumental in causing Moses, Joshua and Caleb to see giants when grasshopper sized problems existed? Joshua and Caleb refused small talk and said they were able to overcome the giants and God gave them the promised land (Numbers 13:2 – 33)!
With Daniel’s faith in God King Nebuchadnezzar’s magicians and his wise men were no match. Like Daniel let us not use thoughts of pity. We are never alone for God will bring us in favor with the right people at the right time!
Let us continue to pray for miracles and wisely give God time. It is good for us to expect miraculous rescues in our world of troubles and disappointments. Nothing is impossible with God. The Lord upholds us when we fall and raise up all who are bowed down (Psalms 45:14).
Trust God to open doors for health, wealth all daily problems. God sees the entire picture of our lives and wants us to depend on his wisdom and love.
It may be well that we guard our thinking so that we can see God’s miracles that surround us each day.
Satan knows that we are weak and his entire strategy is to break our focus, to end our concentration on God’s goodness and our assignment(s) from Him! Let us continue to depend on the wisdom of God. The Holy Spirit within us will rise to the occasion and speak through us. Depend on Him!
