Topic: Living Life
Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. (Job 2:9 KJV) What if your partner would give a suggestion to release all your stresses, would you do it? What if your partner suggestion to curse God to release all your problems, would you do it? Living an earthly life is not easy and sometime we decide to blame someone for our own problems. I’ve been guilty of doing this when the problem would occur in my life. As Job’s wife, I’d want to blame God for my problem. It’s not easy for us when the problems would come reality. Look at Job. When Satan attacked his properties and people, Job struggled to resolve all of his issues. When his wife tried to help him, she suggested him to curse God and die. That was negative responding to assist her husband’s problem. Job’s respond to his wife suggestion was, "But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips." (Job 2:10.) Even when all his friends’ were not help him, Job didn’t angry to God. Jesus did the same thing, when He was tempted by Satan in the wilderness for forty days (Matthew 4:1-11). What will your respond be when the tragedy would hit you? In 1 Peter 5:7 tells us, "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." God can help us to go through our problems if we let them go. In fact, Paul says, "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-7.) We need to learn how to be patient to solve our own problems by trusting God. We have the power to go through the life challenges. That is prayer—communication between God and us. Read the Acts to see how Peter set free from the prison when he prayed to God. Read the life of Daniel, when he was in the lion den and set free through the power of prayer. We all face obstacles in daily basis. However, we cannot solve our problems without God’s resources. We cannot blame God for our problems unless we’d seek His face to face our obstacles.
