You shall not die until you achieve that which God has sent you to fulfill

Don’t just think any thought that comes to the mind If it’s a negative, discouraging, fearful thought, don’t give it the time of the day Empty out the negative *You shall not die until you achieve that which God has sent you to fulfill.

Then his wife said to him, Do you still hold fast to your integrity ?. Curse God and die.

But he said to her, You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity ?. In all this Job did not sin with his lips.

Job 2:9-10.
We serve a God who is our Creator, Saviour, Provider, Protector and Restorer, and He is the restoration business since the creation came into existence and He will continue to restore anything and everything till the end times. The above scripture portion tells us that Job’s wife asks him to curse God and die, because of his losses, but Job is a man of great faith, he replies back to her, shall we indeed accept good from God and shall we not accept adversity ?.

God gives and Satan takes away, Job out of ignorance and when in a state of depression said the Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. It was God who gave everything to Job and it was Satan who took it away, not God ( God allowed it ). Some people always blame God for everything wrong in their lives, instead of blaming the devil, they blame God. Many in the body of Christ take this wrong confession of Job into consideration and when they have and face problems and lose their possessions they say the Lord gave and the Lord took it away. The truth is that God gives and Satan takes away that is why Jesus said ” The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, I have come that they may have life and they may have it more abundantly ” John 10:10.

If Satan has to touch a believer, it has to take permission from God and sometimes God allows it to chastise us for our own good. Jesus said to Peter, Satan has asked me permission to sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that you may not fall. It was in Peter’s hands to fall or not, he denied Jesus thrice and fell, but Jesus didn’t leave him in that fallen state after resurrection Jesus went searching for Peter and restored him back.

Great faith will always be tried and tested, every man and woman of God in the Bible had their test of faith, no one escaped it, and everyone who went through it came out victorious. In the world system if anyone fails in any test, then they are detained in the same place, whereas in the kingdom of God anyone who writes the faith test, passes the test and goes to the next level.(God gives grace ). What God starts, He finishes.

Many of us walk with God in good times, but when problems and persecutions strike us, we stop reading, listening, meditating and praying the word of God, we stop going to church, we stop giving to God. It takes a real man and woman of faith to walk with God in troubled times ( even unbelievers can walk with God in good times ). In the kingdom of God there is always a winning and losing season. Many lose their faith, hope, trust and confidence in God in their losing season. Job could take the losses in his stride, whereas his wife could not take and bear the losses, so she said to him curse God and die.

Job had a deeper relationship and understanding of God, he knew that he served the Creator of this universe and He can give back anything, anytime, anywhere to anyone, especially His children. God can give the address of a gold mine or a oil well to a person, he and his generations can simply live of it without doing any other work except serving God. God has and knows the addresses of where He has deposited the precious things in the earth. For centuries man is extracting precious things from the earth, but it is still not got exhausted. Man may get tired, but Gods resources will never get exhausted, it will continue till the end times. Jobs wife knew God as a Creator and Giver, but not as a Restorer, she thought once lost always lost and gone forever. You should know God from every dimension, only then it will benefit you.

The secret to be joyful in our losing season is by reading, listening, meditating and praying the word of God. Job even though he had lost everything he had, he did not lose his faith, hope and praying habit, he prayed for his friends and got back double for all his trouble.

Beloved even if you lose anything and everything on the face of this earth, never lose the habit of reading, listening, meditating and praying the word of God and giving to God. One word from God, is more than enough to close your sad story and give you brand new beginnings.

He does great things past finding out, Yes wonders without number.

Job 9:10.
He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, And your lips with rejoicing.

Job 8:21.
Heavenly Father thank You for the word, Lord give us the grace to always look to You and walk with You in good times and in bad times. Lord we uphold every person who is in their losing season and who have lost material things, perform a miracle in their lives, let everything that they have lost, their health, wealth, relationships, property, finances, career and businesses come back to them in a hundred fold measure. Thank You Lord for all the miracles, in Jesus name we ask and pray.
Amen and Amen.
God loves you
