When There is No Hope
Topic: Book of Job

And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother’s house: And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them: And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother’s house: And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. (Job 1:13-19 KJV)

Now, God gave Satan to try to mess around with Job’s life. We began to see that his children were misbehaving. Just like the days of Noah, Job’s children were drinking and eating, nothing concerned with their personal relationship with God. We then see that Job experienced famine in his land as the other nation began to make war against the land of Ur. During the war, Job lost all of his wealth and family.

Before I can reveal the decision of Job made, let’s exam in our situation. What if Iran would hit our nation, what would we do? Even though the radical Islam hit Word Trade Tower and Pentagon on September 11, 2001, it doesn’t mean that they would not hit us again. I believe God wrestled against Satan to prevent Satan from destroying whole nation. God gave Satan some limits of power to destroy our nation on that day. Why? Even though our nation is considered as Christian nation, some of us have been astray from God. We see that the homosexual lobbyists came out from the closet, adding ungodly activities into the public and private school systems, churches and state governments are separating from each other, and more.

What you would do when the tragedy hit you? It would be easy for the people to go to the bar and take the dose of wine or beer as the world suggest. But I’d like to tell you that there is better way to handle your stress. Do you think Job went to the night club to release his stress? We will see that Job had another way to release the hopeless of his life.

Visiting psychology counselor will not help you. The only way to release your stress is through Jesus Christ. I Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”

If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.
