“Will Your Faith Be Shaken Today If Things Are Removed From Your Life?”

26 04 2011

Greetings I bring to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ our Redeemer! Dear friends, as we look into another topic of mine today, let us look at the above title and question ourselves “If our faith will be shaken Today if certain things are removed from our life?” Yes, my friends! Let us take time to ponder on questions like this? 

Dear friends, as we take a look at the above topic again, How many of us are able to stand for God even though there are certain things removed from our lives, Today? Friends, there are many of us out there who say that we can stand on any situation or circumstances that come our way! Are we really able to stand it? At times we preach to others about the word of God but when something happens to you or your family members are you able to still stand strong for the Lord and go on to proclaim His word to people we meet? Today, my dear friends, there will be certain things that will be removed or things that will happen to you to see if you and I can still stand on the word of God and still say that “God is good all the time, And all the time God is good.”

Dearly beloved friends, what if today you are hit with a terrible financial constraint, your health is affected, your assets are gone, all your shares are gone, if either spouses are called home and your only child is called home too! What will your situation be Today, if any of these things are taken from you? Will you still be able to praise and worship the Lord God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength? Or are you just going to question God, why is He doing all these to you? You, who have been preaching and teaching the word of God to others, are you able to stand against all these that has overtaken you my friends? Will the word of God still be alive in your hearts? Friends, the time of testing will come to each and everyone of us in sometime of our lives along the way!

Dear friends, some of us out there who are rich and wealthy, have you ever considered what will happen if your riches and wealth are taken away from you, Today? Never ever think that things will remain always the same. Job was tested. He was such a wealthy man and a god fearing man and yet he was tested. God told Satan that there was no such person like Job. As it was written in Job 1:8-12 “Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has?” You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face. The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.”

Dear friends, this is what will happen to each and everyone of us. We will each be tested to see if we are still for God or are we just going to lose hope and curse God? Satan stripped Job from everything that he had and owned, right from his children to his wealth! Till the end Job still feared God and God blessed him twice as much as he had before ( Job 42:10 ) Friends, Today are we able to stand like Job if all things are stripped from us today right from our health, wealth, children and spouses? Friends, let us ponder on this questions! Situations and circumstances will be changed in our lives. If Job can be tested it would not take time for each and everyone of us to be tested too! Friends, in times like this always “Stand Firm” and know that whatever happens to you Today “God is still in Control” of your lives. He will never leave you nor forsake you for any reason. The devil is out there waiting to snatch your faith away from God! Do not give Satan a foothold in your life! Be on your guard daily and guard your life with the word of God. Prayer is the most important thing you have to do daily my friends. Do not leave home without your prayers! Have a Blessed Day my beloved friends!

God Bless.
