Dear Sisters and Brothers,
The Lord may test us and even give permission to have all that we have taken away from us, but He will never leave nor forsake us. Like Job God will give us even greater. God will silence, even check all who seek to destroy us, and at the same time use our lives for others to increase their relationship with and faith in Him.
What doesn’t kill us definitely makes us stronger. So when you’ve done all that you can do to stand, stand firm then knowing God has you.
Love Always in Christ Jesus,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
Job 42:7-12, 15-16 NLT
“After the LORD had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has. So take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer on your behalf. I will not treat you as you deserve, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has.” So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite did as the LORD commanded them, and the LORD accepted Job’s prayer. When Job prayed for his friends, the LORD restored his fortunes. In fact, the LORD gave him twice as much as before! Then all his brothers, sisters, and former friends came and feasted with him in his home. And they consoled him and comforted him because of all the trials the LORD had brought against him. And each of them brought him a gift of money and a gold ring. So the LORD blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning. For now he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 teams of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys.
In all the land no women were as lovely as the daughters of Job. And their father put them into his will along with their brothers. Job lived 140 years after that, living to see four generations of his children and grandchildren.”
