Choose to say–Blessed be the name of the LORD!

Job 1:20-22 Amplified Bible (AMP)
20 Then Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head [in mourning for the children], and he fell to the ground and worshipped God. 21 He said,

  • “Naked (without possessions) I came [into this world] from my mother’s womb, And naked I will return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

22 Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.

No matter what circumstances you find yourself in
Worship the Lord!

He gives and takes away
BUT I will choose to say
Blessed be the name of the LORD! –Job 1:21
He is great and greatly to be praised! –Psalm 96:4

Choose to remember the Lord is sovereign over all
Nothing is too hard for Him! –Jeremiah 32:17
Blessed be His glorious name
Both now and forevermore! –Psalm 113:2

Psalm 34:1 Amplified Bible (AMP)
1 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

    From ourdailybread:

    In our sufferings, we too may find ourselves vacillating between despair and hope, doubt and faith. God doesn’t require us to be dauntless in the face of adversity but instead invites us to come to Him with our questions. Though our faith may fail at times, we can trust God to always be faithful.

    Prayer:
    Dear Father, when doubts and fears overwhelm me, help me remember I’m precious in Your sight. You’re always in control, and You care for me.

    INSIGHT

    Job’s story, even with its extremities of loss and suffering, is an honest presentation of life in a broken world. We face opposition both spiritual (Satan) and human (Job’s wife and friends). We experience seasons of fullness (Job 1:1–3) and extended times of great loss (chs. 1–2). We endure heartache related to those we love (Job 1:18–19) as well as trials related to our own health (Job 2:7). Job’s trials were so comprehensive that they touched almost every area of human suffering, and his responses were also completely human. At times, Job expressed extraordinary faith and trust in God (Job 1:20–22), and at other times he questioned the Creator’s seeming lack of care in his struggles (Job 30:20–24). This roller-coaster of spiritual and emotional turmoil reminds us of life’s realities—realities in which God calls us to rest in Him (chs. 38–41), even when we don’t understand what’s happening to us.
