By Pastor/Evangelist Barbara Lynch
It matters not where you roam; I am with you. When you go into the dregs of darkness, I am with you. When you come into the Heavenly Throne Room, I am with you. I am a perfect Father, and I watch over My Children. I allow you to get burnt now and then, so you won’t grow up like a spoiled child. But even in the burning, I am with you, encouraging you to come forth in total victory. The enemy knows no rest nor peace; for he is continually before My face asking for My Beloved Ones. Little ones, understand that I am for you, not against you.
Why the trials? Let’s look at Job.
Job 1: 6 – 12 (MSG)
6 One day, when the angels came to report to GOD, Satan, who was the Designated Accuser, came along with them.
7 GOD singled out Satan and said, “What have you been up to?” Satan answered GOD, “Going here and there, checking things out on earth.”
8 GOD said to Satan, “Have you noticed my friend Job? There’s no one quite like him—honest and true to his word, totally devoted to God and hating evil.”
9 Satan retorted, “So do you think Job does all that out of the sheer goodness of his heart?
10 Why, no one ever had it so good! You pamper him like a pet, make sure nothing bad ever happens to him or his family or his possessions, and bless everything he does—he can’t lose!
11 “But what do you think would happen if you reached down and took away everything that is his? He’d curse you right to your face, that’s what.”
12 GOD replied, “We’ll see. Go ahead—do what you want with all that is his. Just don’t hurt him.” Then Satan left the presence of GOD.
Children. Did I not tell you that you were going through a Job experience? I did not allow you to be tested without warning you first. Now that the test is here and it is severe, you want to quit. Do Me a favor. Sit down with My Word and carefully read the entire chapter of Job and see how he was tested but came through still praising Me.
YOU CAN MAKE THIS. THIS IS NOT TOO HARD FOR YOU. DON’T BELIEVE WHAT THE ENEMY IS CAUSING YOU TO LOOK AT. TRUST ME AND MY WORD AND MOVE ON INTO THE VICTORY CIRCLE.
