Thought from the Word

A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

Job 1:21

“And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”

It is the same for every person that has ever lived:We came into this world naked and we will leave the same way – naked.This means we have nothing when we are born and when we die we do not take anything with us.So all we have between birth and death is the gift from God --- what He gives us.It is God’s choosing whether we areallowed anything or not. What He does give us He can take back again.The book of Job puts it this way:"Naked I came into the world--and naked I shall return. The Lord has given--and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord!"All that we have, our food and clothing and all our belongings are only lent to us by the Lord for awhile.The thing we should see is that we deserve nothing – we should be content with, and thankful for everything we have.I Timothy 6:7-“For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.”WOW!!! Are you thankful for what the Lord has lent you here on earth?

If Christ is ours, God is ours, Heaven is ours, all is ours!
