The Lord Gives and The Lord Takes Away

Please pray for our brothers and sisters at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Enid, OK. Four of their young people will killed last night in a head on collision on the interstate.

From Job 1:

13Now on the day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house,

14a messenger came to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding beside them,

15and the Sabeans attacked and took them. They also slew the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

16While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

17While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “The Chaldeans formed three bands and made a raid on the camels and took them and slew the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

18While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house,

19and behold, a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people and they died, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

20Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped.

21He said,
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
And naked I shall return there
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away.
Blessed be the name of the LORD.”

22Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.

  1. It is during times like these that I am very thankful for a Sovereign God! May God grant peace and mercy during these difficult times – all for His glory.

    You have this wrong…

    Job was written before any other chapters in the bible. But it was found later therefore it is later on in the bible… So, when Job said this, he did not have the Word of God(the bible) to look at and see if it was actually right… By the time he actually found out what he said was wrong, he repented… He repented of saying God gives and takes away!
