Job

September 9, 2010 at 8:02 1 comment

I have been reading Job and what I have learned from this book is when you are suffering turn to the Lord and focus on Him and your suffering will diminish or go away.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right side of God.  Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12:2-3

If you find yourself in a desperate situation call out to God to rescue you.

From the Lord comes

deliverance.

May your blessing be on your people. Psalm 3:8

If you are overcome with grief turn to the Lord and he will comfort you.

Give ear to me words,

O Lord,

consider my sighing.

Listen to my cry for help,

my King and my God,

for to you I pray.

In the morning, O Lord,

you hear my voice;

in the morning I lay my

requests before you

and wait in expectation.

Psalm 5:1-3

If you are overcome by your sins confess them to you King and he will comfort you.

If your are overcome by sin confess to our loving Father.

Have mercy on, O God,

according to your unfailing love;

according to your great

compassion

blot out my

transgressions.

Wash away all my iniquity

and cleanse me from my sin.

For I know  my

transgressions,

and my sin is always

before me.

Against you, you only, have

I sinned

and done what is evil in

your sight,

so that you are proved

right when you speak

and justified when you judge.

Surely I was sinful a birth,

sinful from the time my

mother conceived me.

Surely you desire truth in

in inner parts,

you teach me wisdom in

in inner parts;

Cleanse me with hyssop,

and I will be clean;

wash me, and I will be

whiter than snow.

Let me hear joy and gladness;

Let the bones you have

crushed rejoice.

Hide you face from my

sins

and blot out all my inquity.

Create in me pure heart,

O God, and renew a steadfast

spirit within me.

do not cast me from your presence

or take you Holy Spirit

from me.

Restore to me the joy of

your salvation

and grant me a willing

spirit, to sustain me.

Psalm 51:1-12 (NIV)

When you afraid of future look to the Lord he bring calm to you.

This is what the Lord says: “When seventy years are completed from Babylon, I will come to and fulfill my gracious promise to bring back to this place.  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.  Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, and will bring you back from captivity. Jeremiah 29:10-14a

Also read Psalm 2.

When you are afraid God will come to you and give you peace.

I lift my eyes to the

hill–

where does my help com

from?

My help come from the

Lord,

the maker of heaven and

earth.

Psalm 121:1-2 (NIV)

If God has brought you through miserable experience turn to the Lord of healing.

“Come, let us return to

the Lord.

He has torn us to pieces

but he will heal us;

he has injured us

but he will bind up our

wounds.

after two days he will

revive us.

On the third day he will

restore us,

that we may live in his

presence.

Let us acknowledge the

Lord;

let us press on to

acknowledge him.

As surely as the sun rises,

he will appear;

he will come to us like the

winter rains,

like the spring rains that

water the earth.”

Hosea 6:1-3

Always remember our help, our wisdom, our comfort and our joy comes from the Lord.

…because God has said,

“Never will I leave you;

never will I forsake

you.”

So we say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper; I

will not be afraid.

What can man do to me?”

Hebrews 13:5c-6

Worship him, praise him for giving us so many great promises for his children!!!
