TOPIC: DON’T TURN AWAY

Read: Job 1:13-22

MEMORISE: - If that is the case, our God whom
we serve is able to deliver us from the burning
fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your
hand, O king_ (Daniel 3:17).


EXPOSITION

When life is hard, and it doesn’t s seem worth
living, to turn away from God might seem the
thing to do, but doing it results in unimaginable
disaster.

Job experienced so much agony despite his trust
and faith in God. Series of calamities befell him,
all in a day, by Satan through divine permission
(1:11-12). This shows that the children of God
often pass through manifold temptations from the
devil as long as we are in this world *(cf. Jn.
16:33).* Life is not just for excitement. Only be
determined to follow Jesus, because life itself is
full of mysteries.

All that Job had was taken away from him (vv.
13-20). This dealt a great blow on his delights.
The devil did all he desired against Job, to
provoke him to curse God. As an honest man, he
conducted himself like a man under afflictions.
Though not stupid or senseless, yet he did not
play any indecency, neither did he faint away. He
kept his temper in the midst of all these
provocations. No wonder, the Bible records, In
all this Job did not sin nor charge God with
wrong_ (v.22).* Afflictions must not divert us
from God.

Similarly, the three Hebrews held on to their faith
in God, even in the midst of the fiery furnace
(Dan. 3:17,18).* They did not turn away from God
because they knew He is able to deliver them.
The God of the Hebrews rose to their defence
(Dan. 3:23ff).

Dear devout, whatever comes your way, as Satan
our archenemy is always on the move without
rest to torment and make us deny our faith and
confidence in God *(1 Pet. 5:8),* do not turn
away from God. He is waiting now to answer
when you pray. Call upon Him in faith and He will
deliver you *(Heb. 4:15).

PRAYER POINTS
1. I receive the grace and strength to carry on
even in the most challenging of challenges, in
Jesus’ name.

2. Lord, I will not turn away from You my
Maker, until my saviour comes.

3. Father, intervene in the affairs of our nation
and give us hope, even in the midst of
hopelessness, in Jesus’ name.
