“And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord” (1 JOB 21).
Sisters, first let me tell you that you are beautiful, you are loved, and you are smart. You are only what you answer too. And your life will be what you claim it to be and pray that it is. The purpose for this word that I am sharing today is to uplift all women that are finding themselves to be victims in the circumstance of continual trials and tribulations. I am here to tell you that you are NOT a VICTIM, but instead you are victorious!
I have said before, and I will say again… YOU HAVE TO SPEAK TO THE ENEMY! Tell him what it is and leave it at that. BE BOLD in affirming your peace on earth as it is in heaven. Even in the midst of trials, you have to grab the lemons and SQUEEZE as much life from them as you can and tell them that YOU WILL produce lemonade – No matter the size or shape of the lemon. NO weapon formed up against you shall prosper as you ARE a conqueror (Isaiah 54:17).
And listen, I know that things will get hard. But this is the part of Job’s story that God glorifies so much – Job never gave up and he never rejected God even when his ENTIRE family left him for dead. Job lost everything he owned; he lost his health, his peace of mind – everything. And yet, he still spoke highly of God and defeated the enemy with affirmations of his preordained victory. “And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord” (1 JOB 21).
What man does, will not matter. When man rejects you, God is there to protect you. When man lies or hurts you, God is your healer. It may not feel that way in the beginning, but surely when you have exhausted all options of flesh-induced responses and resolutions, YOU WILL CALL ON HIM – God. There is nothing that is too powerful for God to turn around – know that. BE BOLD, LIKE JOB; Speak to it.
