Book of Job

During conversation with my dear friend Janice, we were discussing that our heavenly Father spoke to her in her dream, woke her up and directed her to the book of Job. Many people don't believe the hype when someone says they were spoken to. You don't have to believe it, thats up to you. But anyhow..she forwarded this information to me and thought I would share with you. You may be able to apply it to yourself. Is this you?

Sometimes, well no...Im lying...ALOT of times we may want to question God and the trials he puts us through. We need to understand that it is HIS plan and not ours. Some people still don't understand, some never will. If you ever question may wanna think twice.

Read this...and think about it...

Practical Application: The Book of Job reminds us that there is a "cosmic conflict" going on the behind the scenes that we usually know nothing about. Often we wonder why God allows something, and we question or doubt God's goodness, without seeing the full picture. The Book of Job teaches us to trust God under all circumstances. We must trust God, not only WHEN we do not understand, but BECAUSE we do not understand. The Psalmist tells us “As for God, His way is perfect” (Psalm 18:30). If God’s ways are “perfect,” then we can trust that whatever He does—and whatever He allows—is also perfect. This may not seem possible to us, but our minds are not God’s mind. It is true that we can’t expect to understand His mind perfectly, as He reminds us “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9). Nevertheless, our responsibility to God is to obey Him, to trust Him and to submit to His will, whether we understand it or not.
