God loves you just as much as he always has. When things go wrong it’s not God doing it. Storms, floods, trials …none of it is an ‘act of God.”
Remember that in the Old Testament everything was under a shadow; and even THEY (the ones who recorded what happened) did not see the whole picture.
What I get out of the story of Job-is not God letting satan loose on people, it’s that Job saw his enemy was the devil- and not God. Satan accused Job- and Job did not have Jesus for his defense attorney as Jesus had not arrived
(YET!). This is why Jesus told his disciples “Blessed are you to hear what you hear”
and talked about others who wanted to see and hear what they had (but did not!).
So while Job is a great example of Faith- he is not an example of New Testament living! We need to remember that.
Job didn’t have Ephesians 6 -and the teachings on standing up in the Authority of God with your Armour on. WE DO ……..

I was that "unpopular" wierdo kid, that didn't fit in anywhere, in High School. I guess I never knew my place in life, until Jesus took me in. I've been rejected, misunderstood, left out, bullied, abused, scandalized, and labeled. In 2002 I got on a bus and left a marraige of sixteen years, that was fraught with abuse and heartache. In school, I used to be so afraid to stand in front of the class and speak, my hands woud visibily shake, and I could not look at my audience without being terrified.
Years later, I find myself leading a school music production, speaking in front of churches, and walking around with confidence, because I know the King of Kings is at my side.
My ministry, prayers and blogs are directed toward those who feel like they were never enough. You never fit in.
If I can help you in any way, if you need a special speaker to speak hope to the hurting, or if you would like a copy of my Testimony book (Grace to the Rescue) let me know. I am here for you. I also have a new book out "Confidence".
With Love, Laura
