Job 3:25 ” What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me.”

Being a Christian does not mean we are immune to difficulties, hardships, or afflictions…that’s because we live in a broken world.  And Job realized this…that troubles would come into his life.  But Job also saw that he could never take God’s blessings for granted.  So today, let’s all take a moment to count our blessings both great and small.  If all your family and friends are healthy and safe…thank Him.  If you have enough food to eat, a roof over your head, and clothing to wear…thank Him.    Jesus did not promise that our life here on earth would be void of suffering, quite the opposite.  For He tells us in John 16:33, “In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”  That’s because He’s the God of all comfort Who comforts us in the midst of all our troubles. (II Corinthians 1:4)  So today let’s thank Him for the many blessings we’ve received.
