Job Chapter 42
Then Job replied to the Lord:
I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted. You asked, who is this that obscures my counsel without knowledge? Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know. You said, listen now and I will speak; and you shall answer me. My ears have heard of you, but now my eyes have seen you. Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust in ashes.
Job repents of the things that he said, concerning Gods plan and order. He repents for speaking of things that he knew nothing about. We have to be prepared to repent, when we go to God in our frustrations. That’s the reason why when we pray, we pray for the known and unknown. Saying Lord forgive me, if I insulted you, or did something against without knowledge.
After the Lord had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Teminate, ” I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. So now take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and not deal with you according to your folly. You have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. So Eliphaz the Teminite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite did what the Lord told them; and the Lord accepted Job’s prayer. After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before. All his brothers and sisters and everyone who had known him before came and ate with him in his house. They comforted and consoled him over all the trouble the Lord had brought upon him , and each one gave him a piece of silver and a gold ring.
Glory to God! God hears his servants, and accepts the prayers of his servants. After all that was said, Job was restored after praying for his friends. Sometimes when we go through test, that is the exact thing that brings us forth unselfish prayer. Asking God, to have mercy on those that know not what they do. when I was going through a storm, that was the very thing what I learned. I did not hear from the Father until I began praying for those that needed him. As a servant it is our jobs to intercess for those that are not walking with Christ.
The Lord blessed the latter part of Jobs life more than the first. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six Thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. And he also had seven sons and three daughters. The first daughter he named Jemimah, the second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch. No where in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance with their brothers, After this Job livid a hundred and forty years; he saw his children and their children to the fourth generation. and so he died old and full of years.
Glory to God! Job who once said,God would not allow a man to see his descendants gain his fortune. God allowed Job to see to the fourth generation. Bless the Lord that he is powerful. Bless the Lord that his word allowed his servant Double, Double in life years, family, and property, for being faithful. we learned some great lessons in this book. stay tuned for tomorrows blogs where we will go over those lessons.
