Job 42:12 ” The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the first.”

If you’re familiar with the story of Job, you could find this verse at the end of the Book almost inconceivable. If anything bad could happen, it happened to Job. He suffered pain, sorrow, total financial ruin, loss of all his children, and finally, great physical affliction. But it says God blessed the final part of his life more that the former. So how come and why? If you read the entire Book of Job you’ll see Job’s faith and trust in God never wavered and he persevered when everyone else around him doubted. And in the end, God changed his outcome. For many of us our past has been riddled with anguish, turmoil, loss, and pain…but be encouraged, our former state is in the past and what’s in the future is entirely in the Lord’s hands.
