Job 1:1 KJV
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name [was] Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
Lord God, I see the love you have for me.
You have shown me your hands
But my sins have put me into an unfamiliar place
I have lost all
I thought I was good
But I have lost all
Why has this happen to me?
The evil I see coming
I have played into his hand
Job 3:25 NLT
What I always feared has happened to me. What I dreaded has come true.
The key word in this scripture is he feared.
He has given him power over all that I have, even me
But death is not near
I have lost all and at moments thought of death.
Job 2:9-10 NASB
Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die!” 10But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
I am reminded of your love for me
Thought all has been taken
Even thought you had forsaken me
But why me Lord
Am I not your son Job?
I cannot see things clearly
My mind is weak because of the state I am in.
I have to remind myself
I am Job.
A son of God
The one whom I love
And who loves me
I am Job
If I had my Father’s hand
And because of my sins
I have loosened the grip of His hands.
Only to be set down in this pain.
Pain like this I never knew, but now I know.
Even as the pain is great, yet I do not put this cause upon my God.
I am Job
To remember me, also to remind my God
Once that I was
Once I will be again.
Having more than I once had
But this time my feelings have changed toward things.
Things I have, but things do not have me.
Job 42:10-11 KJV
And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11 Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the Lord had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.
To lose it all once
If then it be gone again
I am Job
And I will gain again.
