God has a reason for the black ice in our life. Don't allow the devil to make you slip, fall and bruise up bitterness. Have on your proper armor, your praying knee pads and your "ice skating partners." Together you can take the steps in a cleared path, trusting that your Spring awaits you.
Lord, you've given us in your Word an example of a man who loved you beyond his circumstances. In his humaness, Job's belief and healthy "fear" of the Lord, restored his life even though he suffered a "titanic" loss. He listened to wise counsel, seeking Your wisdom. Sometimes, we may only see what is on the surface, but you Lord are bigger than our storms and wider than our misery. You can melt a heart frozen in grief and despair with your warming promise of Spring redemption. Thank you Lord for giving us wise counselor-friends who wrap us in the warmth of love, easing our chills. In turn, may our warming spirits rekindle Your hope in a world frost-bitten by the enemy. Amen.
|Verse 14: "Listen to this, O Job, Stand and consider the wonders of God."|
