Job 3:25 NLT: What I always feared has happened to me. What I dreaded has come true.
In the journey of life, we are often faced with situations that put us in a position of fear. A place where uncertainty reigns and no clue of what to do. In such a state, we say and do things we shouldn’t say or do. We may even harm ourselves if not our loved ones.
Today, we see Job in that situation. But the interesting fact here is that it was his fears that manifested into a reality. He felt insecure and was afraid of the worst, happening to him and his household. His fears instead came to reality.
Fear comes when you feel insecure. Job was not aware of the level of protection God had for him. Look at what the Bible says in Job 1:10 GNB “You have always protected him and his family and everything he owns. You bless everything he does, and you have given him enough cattle to fill the whole country.
” This statement was made by Satan before God. It means even Satan was more aware of the protection of the lord upon Job than Job was aware.
If Job was aware of this protection, he wouldn’t have been afraid. So my dear friend, never entertain fear in your life because the Lord your God watches over you and your family. When you are afraid, it only shows that you don’t trust in the protection God has for you. You are blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: I am not afraid for the Lord is my protection. Hallelujah.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your protection upon my life and my household. May your name be glorified forever. In Jesus Name. Amen.
