Nothing Can Prevent His Will

Job was a man that would continue to trust God, even when he was dealing with trials and tribulations. This all came about when Satan was allowed by God to create havoc in the life of Job. The purpose of the havoc was to get Job to turn away from trusting God, and focus on what he was dealing with. Job had to deal with all ten of his children dying at once, and all of his livestock taken away. If that wasn’t enough, he developed sores all over his body. When his wife saw him, she said, “do you still persist in your integrity? Curse God and die.” Job would not do as his wife suggested. Then his friends came and began to dialogue with him, suggesting he did something wrong. They said if he was righteous, this would not have happened to him. Job was doing his best to defend himself, but looking at his current condition, it made him question himself. After these conversations with his friends, God came and rebukes his friends. He begins to engage in conversation with Job because God could see the situation was beginning to wear him down. Those that come to see us when we are dealing with life’s situations, do one of two things. They will either be a great support system for us or be an additional burden to what we are dealing with. 

In Job 42:1-2, we see Job has recovered from all the anguish he has been dealing with and makes this statement. In verse 2, Job says, “I know that you can do all things and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” Saints, Job had to learn God can do all things, from all that he has been through he was still here. What was reinforced for Job was that God was the reason he was still alive. Therefore, he was going to make it known to God,  and all that were listening nothing can prevent His will from being done in his life. Saints we have to realize there are no limits to what God can do. With all that happened to Job, the only reason he didn’t fall apart, is because of the presence of God in his life. 

We have to know there is a purpose for what we are going through. The reason God said to Satan have you considered my servant Job? God knew that Job was a faithful servant because He knew the heart of his servant. The purpose for doing this was to show Satan, my servants are faithful to the end. No matter what Job had to deal with, he was going to be faithful. Why, because he served a God that has been there for him. Therefore, whatever purpose He has for me, nothing can prevent His will from happening. Continue to walk in your blessings!
