Job 14:14-"If a man dies, will he live again? All the days of my struggle I will wait until my change comes.” Many times in life we go through struggles and difficult circumstances. We may have lost a job, a loved one, a house; maybe a health issue has taken its toll in our lives. We become sad, discouraged and overwhelmed, it becomes hard to see clearly when our hearts are heavy and our eyes are filled with tears.
However, even in the midst of our storms, we must find contentment in knowing that our ever-loving and wise God is able to help us through every trying situation.
Many are probably familiar with the story of Job and how he lost everything he had, but in the end when he was restored and renewed, the scriptures declare that he was given back twice as much as he had before, a double portion indeed. (Praise God)!
But, first he had to wait for his change to come. We know that waiting can be hard especially when we are experiencing pain and trials. But, I am a living witness and a walking testimony that God is a good God and that He hears the prayer of all His children; and if we wait our change will come.
So today Lord, I pray that You will continue to be my strength and my strong tower and my refuge even in the midst of my storms. I pray that You will guide me to all truth and give me the wisdom and courage it takes to wait…until my change comes.
