Going all in – “If I lost it all, would my hands stay lifted?”

I was reading Job the other day which is kind of weird considering that I am in a time of blessing but I felt like God was calling my attention to it.

Job was a good dude.  Good to the point that even God was bragging about how good Job was to Satan!  That in and of itself is kind of nuts.  Wouldn’t you be happy if you knew God was bragging about you? God blessed his socks off for serving faithfully.  God placed protection around him and gave him all kinds of stuff.  Satan basically said to God that Job was only serving God because of the good stuff God had done for him

.  Satan wanted God to allow him to make Job suffer to show God that he was right.  So, God allowed it and Satan caused terrible things to happen to Job.  Basically, Job had servant after servant come running in saying that his possessions were all gone and then worse, his family was killed.  Talk about a bad day!

Job shaved his head and tore his robe.  But what is significant here is what happens next.  The Bible says that Job fell to the ground and worshipped God. This guy was blessed beyond his wildest dreams and in one screwed up day, it was all gone.  Then, God allowed Satan to inflict pain and suffering on Job’s body.  The suffering that was inflicted upon Job was so bad that when his buddies came around, they didn’t even recognize him!  They stayed with him but said nothing for seven days and then basically told him he should curse God and die.  Even his wife just told him to curse God and die.  But, Job remained faithful.  He stuck with it and believed that God had a purpose in all of this.  Job worshipped God for who He was, not for what God had done.

This basic concept is something that has been rolling around in my head for the past 3 or 4 weeks.  It all kind of came together for me this afternoon when I heard a song called “I’m Still Yours” by Kutless.  It just talks about still worshipping God through a broken heart and through the bad times.

When God does great things, we can and should celebrate it!  God wants us to celebrate it and proclaim what He has done and thank Him for it.  But, we must remain careful that we are not worshipping the miracle. If God were to take that miracle away, would you stop praising Him and would you get frustrated with God?

Let worship and adoration come from who God is and all of His fullness.

Let celebration come from what God does and for his blessings.

Kutless – I’m Still Yours

If You washed away my vanity
If You took away my words
If all my world was swept away
Would You be enough for me?
Would my beating heart still sing?

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives and takes away

If You take it all
This life You’ve given
Still my heart will sing to You

When my life is not what I expected
The plans I made have failed
When there’s nothing left to steal me away
Will You be enough for me?
Will my broken heart still sing?

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives
And takes away

If You take it all
This life You’ve given
Still my heart
Will sing to You

Even if You take it all away
You’ll never let me go
Take it all away
But I still know

That I’m Yours
I’m still Yours

Oh, I’m Yours
I’m still Yours
I’m still Yours

    Definitely. It’s hard to even imagine what it was like for Job. My life is easy and yet I still at times struggle to make time for worshiping God.

      yeah, I totally get that. Its super hard…and I still don’t get it but I feel like we’re not meant to understand it. That’s one of the reasons that we keep worshipping.
