"Oh, that I might have my request and that God would grant me the thing that I long for."
Job 6:8
 
Job was a man of God. but when his possessions and his children were taken from him and he himself was covered with distressing boils, he was overwhelmed with grief. His friends added to his affliction. They did not understand. Nor can anyone fully understand who has not passed through some similar experience.
 
Job prayed that God might end his plight through a speedy death. He believed that hits was the only solution. But later he learned to praise the infinite love and wisdom of God in not granting his request.
 
The important think was that we still prayed. His eyes were uplifted to God. This saved him from the tragedy into which a tormenting wife would have led him. They bowed humbly. They waited patiently for God's answer as they prayed: "Not my will, but Thine be done." Their eyes turned to . . .

They waited patiently for God's answer as they prayed: "Not my will, but Thine be done." Their eyes turned to Calvary. There they saw God offering Him who was nearest and dearest to Him as a sacrifice for our sins, on the Cross. They, perhaps, wondered what transpired in the heart of God when His Son cried out: "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?"
 
Christian friends - today at times we regret thoughts which entered our hearts in a time of grief that deeply wounded us and seemed to leave nothing but a black, hopeless future before us. Perhaps we prayed for something which would have defeated God's purposes for us. Let us see love supreme. Surely, God who so loved us, cannot harm us, but will make all things work for our good.
 
Something happens when we pray.
Powers of evil lose their sway,
We gain strength and fear gives way-
Therefore, let us pray.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Even when you feel you have nothing left, you still have prayer, and that's enough.
