For Me???? 11/24/21
HAPPY T-DAY!!! MY FAVORITE HOLIDAY!!!
Job 42:10 (KJV)
10 And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
Job 42:12-13 (KJV)
12 So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
13 He had also seven sons and three daughters.
“So the Lord BLESSED the LATTER END of Job MORE than his beginning!!!”
My definition of DLEAYED GRATIFICATION is, “Putting off till tomorrow what you could be enjoying today!!!!”
Much has been written and spoken of the life of Job! For 42 Chapters his life of MISERY is chronicled as even his wife and “friend” advised him to:
Job 2:9 (KJV)
9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.
So it is in our earthly lives. Sometimes life takes bewildering twists and turns and there seems to be little, in none, “light at the end of the tunnel.”
Just as satan believed he had won when Christ was crucified, satan laughs and mocks you and I when we too often find ourselves trapped in hopelessness and despair.
But please note the END of Job's life:
James 5:10-11 (KJV)
10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
I am SO excited about tomorrow-THANKSGIVING-MY one and only FAVORITE holiday!!
I have a Popeye's fried turkey thawing in the fridge and great foods being prepared.
Most of my immediate family will be here at my home and YES, my wife hired somebody to clean the house AND made sure the baseboards were properly dusted!!!!
As I lay in bed last night, God brought to my remembrance a story Gary Oliver recounted many years ago
His son was just a young boy as Christmas morning arrived.
He ran down the stairs to see what Santa Clause had left for him under the tree and to his DELIGHT there sat a shiny new bike!!!
He could not believe his eyes-EXACTLY what he had hoped and PRAYED for!!!
THIS YOUNG LAD HAD NO PRIDE OR DIGNITY!!
In utter JOY he began to shout and dance about all the while exclaiming:
“FOR ME, DAD-FOR ME!!! FOR ME, DAD, FOR ME!!!!!”
On this DAY OF THANKSGIVING perhaps each of us should follow in this young boy's example!!!
WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED!!
I know of people personally who will hold their new born child-a MIRACLE of God- for his first THANKSGIVING. I know of others who have NEW jobs and NEW residences and NEW horizons.
Matthew 7:11 (KJV)
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
PLEASE BE PATIENT!! GOD IS NOT FINISHED WITH YOU YET!!!
The BEST is yet to come!!!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!
God Bless You,
