SERIES: When All Hell Breaks Loose
Job 4:18 MSG
Why, God doesn’t even trust his own servants, doesn’t even cheer his angels…
Job 4:7 MSG
“Think! Has a truly innocent person ever ended up on the scrap heap? Do genuinely upright people ever lose out in the end?
Job 1:6-11 NLT
6 One day the members of the heavenly court came to present themselves before the Lord, and the Accuser, Satan, came with them.
7 “Where have you come from?” the Lord asked Satan. Satan answered the Lord, “I have been patrolling the earth, watching everything that’s going on.”
8 Then the Lord asked Satan, “Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless—a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil.”
9 Satan replied to the Lord, “Yes, but Job has good reason to fear God.
10 You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is!
11 But reach out and take away everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face!”
- God believes in our STEWARDSHIP
Genesis 1:26-28 GNV – 26 Then God said, “And now we will make human beings; they will be like us and resemble us. They will have power over the fish, the birds, and all animals, domestic and wild, large and small.” 27 So God created human beings, making them to be like himself. He created them male and female, 28 blessed them, and said, “Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control. I am putting you in charge of the fish, the birds, and all the wild animals.
- God believes in COMMON PEOPLE
Mark 12:37 KJV – David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
God uses WILLING people not THRILLING people.
III. God believes in HIS ENEMIES.
Luke 23:24 KJV – And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required
Jesus believed in people because He believed in GOD.
2 Corinthians 1:10-11 NIV – 10 He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, 11 as you help us by your prayers.
