A Letter from Job

By contributing writer: Kendra Dublin

Job, a servant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Grace and peace to you as we follow the ways of our Lord, who has saved us for his glorious ministry.

I can not thank God enough for his blessings and how his righteousness reigns. Brethren, as you all know, I was tested earlier in my life. I did not understand the depths of what God allows, nor the depths of hate that Satan brings forth, but I know that God reigns.

One day I was given the news that sent me straight into mourning. My livestock was stolen and my servants killed, and my ten sons and daughters died. It sent me into a depression. I know the Lord gives and takes, which is why I could move forward, but my children were my seeds.

I raised them in the ways of God. I loved and cared for them. I prayed day and night diligently, and yet I could not save them. I could’ve become bitter with their lives because it would’ve consumed me. So, I did what God led me to: pray and sacrifice.

I had no idea when God volunteered me for suffering because of my devotion to him. I thought it was God’s hand. Although he permitted it, Satan wanted to destroy me, but my sorrow couldn’t compare to the commitment I made to God.

As I was in the process of rebuilding, I was struck with boils all over my body—a disease of shame. And once again, I mourned, was miserable, and even cursed my birthday, but I did not curse God as my wife asked me.

I thank God for choosing me for this suffering, as I count it all joy. I had no idea I would be chosen, but I am happy to report that God has restored my riches and family because I knew I could not leave him as he has never left me.

In times of trouble, do not go against God. In times of suffering, bless our Lord, for he is worthy of praise. Bless him if he restores everything or allows your condition to stay the same until death.

I thank God for you and your continuous work in faith. Always remember that tomorrow is too late to be great in God’s sight.
