Blessed Be the Name of the Lord
God is so good. I must remember that God is good all the time no matter the circumstances.
My son and daughter in law were missionaries in Brazil and oh the trials they faced there right from the beginning. Our daughter in law had some serious health problems with colitis and then contracted a bacterial infection. Twice she nearly died in a foreign country. But God in His mercy and by His grace did not let that happen.
We wondered why, and even may have asked God why, but we didn’t question God improperly for we know that He knows what He is doing. He was at work in their lives as well as ours.
What amazing attitudes they had through it all and they the trusted the Lord to be their strength through all of it.
In and through all of it, as Job, they did not “charged God foolishly” but rather they put their trust in Him and did not rely on their own understanding.
Job 1:21-22 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
Blessed Be the Name of the Lord : He does know what He is doing!
