I’ve always struggled with the book of Job. For years, I couldn’t get past the beginning where God gives Satan permission to test Job. I didn’t like that part, so that’s where I stopped reading. But, over the years, it seems God has led me to the book of Job on several occasions.
While I was thinking about God-given dreams recently, I read this verse:
So the Lord blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning.
I know I’ve read it before because I remember thinking, Yeah, but he lost so much before that! I got stuck in what happened to Job and couldn’t move forward. Much like we do in real life.
How often do we get stuck in the past, unable to move forward in the present?
I'm sharing at God-sized Dreams today. Please join me there to continue reading...Letting Go of a Dream.
