“At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship”
Job 1:20 NIV
Do you really mean to tell me Job’s first response to losing his wealth and livelihood then losing all his sons and daughters in a freak natural disaster was to worship God?
No! His first responses are typical grief reactions—tearing his clothes and shaving his head. What follows is anything but typical. Instead of lashing out at God for the unimaginable losses he has suffered he falls down and worships the Lord. To lay down his grief and worship in that moment is evidence of the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit in Job.
How is God working in and through you to produce a completely selfless offering? Once you tune your spiritual ears to listen to the Holy Spirit’s promptings you will find yourself, like Job, rejoicing in the moments when the world tells you to give up. 🚦
