Scripture: Job 1:22 In all of this, Job did not sin by blaming God. (NLT)
Nugget: Job’s story is one that is well-known & well-taught throughout our Christian journeys. Job experienced a massive lost of both family/loved ones & possessions. Instead of Job’s faith being dwindled, he praised God in the midst of his circumstances.
Reflecting back on my life, there were many things that I blamed God for; not realizing some things were happening to strengthen me, other things, I caused myself, & some things I may not receive the answer for until a later time.
In spite of my early thoughts & actions, I now know better, instead of blaming God, I praise Him & thank Him through it all. My thought is now, “God is in control. He knows what He’s doing.”
Continue to praise God; look at your circumstance as an opportunity to grow in God, faith, & praise.
