Job 1:21 ” Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”

In a matter of minutes Job lost everything…his livelihood, all his future income, and all ten of his children.  And you may find yourself in the same place today as you survey your mounting losses.  Although Job lost all his material and personal things, there was one thing he never lost, and that was his faith in God.  For this verse tells of his  acknowledgement of God’s sovereignty, goodness, grace and mercy.  And as James 1:17 also reminds us, “Every good and perfect gift is from above…”  Job lost everything…but he never lost what really mattered…his faith.
