You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

And he said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.” – Job 1:21

Job was a blameless and upright person who had kept his trust upon God. He had seven sons and three daughters. He was a wealthy person. On a particular day few of his servants came and told him that all his wealth were taken and destroyed and his children were also dead because of a great wind that came and struck the four corners of the house and it fell on them.

Bible recorded the reactions of Job after he had lost everything. Job arose, tore his rob, shaved his head and worshiped saying, “The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

He praised God even after he heard that he had lost all of his possessions, wealth and children. Such was his love upon God. 

His wife asked him to curse God and die. But even at that time he did not spoke anything against God. Even at the toughest circumstances of his life, he praised God. Finally God has blessed him twice as much as he had before.

Recently I heard a testimony of a Pastor. Few months back as he was travelling to a particular place, he had met with an accident. The car in which he was travelling was crushed and the bones in his arm were broken to pieces. He could see his bones which was penetrating outside the flesh. As blood was dripping he said, “God thank you for permitting this accident in my life.”

His friends took him to hospital. And doctors put back his arm to the normal position after keeping 8 plates inside his arm. They finally told him that he can never move his fingers throughout his life time. To which he praised and thank God for saving his life. He kept his faith upon God and worshipped Him. Months passed and finally God healed him completely and he could move his fingers so freely. 

Few weeks before he released a worship CD in which he had played music with the same hand.
He went through miserable condition but yet he had chosen to worship and praise God. So God blessed him richly. 

My dear young friends, praise God even when you face tough situations. You might have a bad health or bad financial status or broken family. It might be anything. The situations around you might seem to be a Jericho wall to you. Just praise God. You will see God working in your life. The problems and troubles that you are facing will certainly disappear when you praise God. Job worshiped God and He blessed him with greater blessings. He will do the same in your life. You will receive greater blessings.
