A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: Congratulations. Pt Two [15/08/2017]

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. Job 42:11. Read: Job 24:10-16

In the first part of this topic, we established the fact that when a man is going through challenges, he would hardly see a committed friend. A wise man said, it’s in adversity you really know who your friends are not in plenty. Men flock round you when you have to give out but when there is challenges, many (if not all) will forsake you. When the prodigal son brought abundance, his friends were everywhere around him, but immediately they spent all, they departed leaving him in want. Lk 15.

The life story of brother Job is also a good example. This time, even his friends that were with him condemned him thinking he was suffering from the sin he committed against God. Note that, not all Christians facing challenges actually sinned against God, it could just be a trial of faith. During Job’s suffering, all his acquaintance deserted him. From the anchor scripture, when his brethren and sisters and all that have been of his acquaintance BEFORE saw problem, they left him. Mark that word, “BEFORE”. Immediately his problem started, both his wife, brethren, sisters and his acquaintance left him in the heat of the fire to die alone, but God rescued him and blessed him in doubles. May you receive double honour for your shame in Jesus Name


* This season, that thing that will make men that think that challenges would swallow you to congratulate you, God shall do it in Jesus Mighty Name.
