Our Daily Manna Devotional 12 September 2020 – His Wife Would Have Filed For A Divorce

TOPIC: HIS WIFE WOULD HAVE FILED FOR A DIVORCE

BASIC SCRIPTURE: JOB 3 : 1-13

 

Many men go through various life battles and betrayals! I remember Billy Graham once said:“Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.” However, the Holy Ghost is using a popular story you know to speak a word of COURAGE to you today!

Remember the man who had everything a modern billionaire can have: Money, money, money, big money, a good name, properties, investments, health, and a beautiful family. But then, Mr. “TO & FRO” (Satan the accuser) went to God and asked for permission to mess with HIS LIFE! That man is papa Job! Tragedy struck and Job lost his wealth. Next, a storm took the lives of all his children.

Then, a debilitating disease that left his whole body covered with painful boils came in to finally kill him (or that was what the devil first thought). Did Job have a bad moment and think of himself as a failure? Oh yeah! Not only that, his own wife told him that he was a loser and according to a couple of Bible versions, she even suggested that he should curse God (and lose his relationship with Him forever) and die.

She was saying (paraphrased): “GO TO HELL! HEAVEN IS NOT REAL! GOD IS FAKE!” If she were a modern wife, she would have probably filed for divorce and asked for alimony, loss of income, etc.. Yes! She would have gotten the divorce and then gone partying every weekend with her friends while Job died of his horrible illness without anybody to take care of him.

Oh, the agony of Job 3. It is the chapter where JOB CURSED THE DAY HE WAS BORN! It was like he regretted ever being born! HAVE YOU BEEN THERE? Sounds familiar? We all go through such stuff and I have been there many times!

Then Horace once opined: “Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it.” Thomas Carlyle then noted: “Adversity is the diamond dust Heaven polishes its jewels with.” Yes!Those mocking you will be alive to see your DOUBLE PORTION like Job (Job 42: 10)!

Oh! I hope Job’s wife saw the LATTER END of the man she wanted to divorce! Wow! Refuse to give up now! Your latter end is FAME; not SHAME!
