Daily Nugget

  Monday, November 5th, 2012.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill

Put yourself in the shoes of Job for a moment:

1. He lost his wealth. In rapid succession, three messengers came telling Job of the destruction of his property and servants by bands of robbers and by lightning.
2. He lost his family. A fourth messenger came telling of the death of all of Job’s children. Seven sons and three daughters were crushed in a moment when the house fell.
3. He lost his health. Job was smitten from head to foot with most loathsome ulcers. He was constrained to sit down among the ashes and scrape himself with a potsherd.
4. He lost his friends. His servants turned their backs on him. The children in the streets despised Job and mocked him. His friends told him that his sufferings were because of his wickedness. His wife nagged him to curse God and die.

If you take any of these trials separately, they would be great, but view them collectively and one is almost overwhelmed, for in the midst of calamity, “Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped” (Job 1:20).

God, thank You for this day for You have been compassionate and merciful to us.
Bro. Bill
I am thankful to know this Awesome God!
