Can YOU say:

  

"I WENT TO THE ENEMY'S CAMP AND I TOOK BACK WHAT HE STOLE FROM ME?

  

LOOK WHAT THE LORD HATH DONE!!!"

  

WE see this principal, this TRUTH occurring in the life of the most maligned man is history, that being the life of Job:

  

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.

  

A very interesting aside in this TRUE Story is the FACT that God "restored" ONLY "SEVEN sons and THREE DAUGHTERS!"

  

Job 42:13 (KJV)
13  He had also seven sons and three daughters.

  

That was the EXACT same number of children Job had in the beginning-Chapter One!

  

Job 1:1-2 (KJV)
1  There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.   
 

 

2  And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.

 

Job NEVER "lost" his children! Job knew where they were-in Heaven awaiting him!!!

 

God only RESTORED that which Job lost!!!

 

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.

 

"THE LORD GAVE JOB TWICE AS MUCH AS HE HAD BEFORE!!"

 

I WELL know how DIFFICULT, if not downright IMPOSSIBLE to BELIEVE and UNDERSTAND this Verse sometimes:

 

Romans 8:28 (KJV)
28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.   
 

 

Oftentimes it takes WEEKS, MONTHS, even YEARS before we can even begin to "LOOK BACK," and then perhaps exclaim:

 

"LOOK WHAT THE LORD HATH DONE!!!"

 

Notice the "PAST tense" of that statement-"HATH done!!!!"

 

Oftentimes what seems to our human, "RATIONAL" mind seems to be our biggest defeats turn into our greatest victories!!!

 

What WE "thought evil against US; BUT GOD MEANT IT FOR GOOD!!!!!"

 

Genesis 50:20 (KJV)
20  But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

 

CAN I GET A WITNESS?????

 

One, if not the greatest thought God ever spoke to me is this:

 

"SOMETIMES GOD USES A CATASTROPHE TO CREATE A CATALYST IN OUR LIVES!"

 

What "the enemy" meant for harm, God uses it for our BLESSING!!!

 

The QUESTION is not IF but "WHEN!"

 

Psalm 126:1 (KJV)
1

 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

  

THEN and only THEN:

  

Psalm 126:2 (KJV)
2  Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.

  

If TODAY you find yourself stuck in the "WHEN AND THEN" rejoice:

  

 

Psalm 126:5-6 (KJV)
5  They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.   
  

 

6  He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

  

YOU ALSO:

  

"SHALL DOUBTLESS COME AGAIN WITH REJOICING, BRINGING YOUR SHEAVES WITH YOU!!!!"

  

GOD BLESS YOU!
