Praise in Every Circumstance

18 While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, 19 and behold, a great wind came across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young people, and they are dead, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” 20 Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped. 21 And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” 22 In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong. ~ Job 1:18-22

Job lost all of his children in one single day. He could have easily looked up to Heaven and cursed God, but he didn’t. What would you have done? Most of us would have gotten angry at God. We would’ve blamed Him. It’s easy to blame God for every problem in our lives, especially the big life-changing ones, but it’s hard to praise and thank Him for the good in our lives during those times.

Job is a great role model for those who love God. When you love God, you know His love, and you understand that the horrible things in your life aren’t from God. When we blame God for all of our problems, we take our focus off of fighting our true enemy, the Devil. God isn’t our enemy. We have to remember that if God is good, that means He is good in every circumstance regardless of how we feel. And if He is good, He is worthy of our praise in every circumstance regardless of how we feel. Because when we praise God in the bad, He sees our heart’s desire for Him, and He draws nearer to us to comfort us and get us through all trials and tribulations that might come our way.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Praise in Every Circumstance.
