On Sunday morning, I sat at my desk with my Bible open and I was ready to start reading a new book of the Bible and I said, Lord, where do you want me to read next? Immediately I heard “Job”. Now this is not a book I would think to read, and the next thing the Lord said was, “I have some things to show you in there.” This past three days of reading the book of Job, per the Lord’s direction has been amazing. I have read the book many times before, but with fresh eyes I am seeing things I never saw before.
Today, I am reading Job 8:20-22 and I was stopped in my tracks, for I believe it is a now word for the nations. Listen to this, “Lo, God will not reject a man of integrity, Nor will He support the evildoers. He will yet fill your mouth with laughter And your lips with shouting. Those who hate you will be clothed with shame, And the tent of the wicked will be no longer.” We can read this as a personal word, but as I read it I heard it as a corporate word For the nations. Many nations have been rejected by not being given access to basic needs, water, electricity, freedom, just to name a few things. God has not rejected them and He is about to show them HIs abundance.
Job goes on to say, God will not support evildoers, I think we need to remember this, no matter what you see and hear, God is not supporting evildoers, but He is about deal with the tent of the wicked and when He does we are going to have mouths filled with laughter and shouting. We have not known real celebration, national, nations celebrating what only God could do, but He will YET fill our mouths with laughter and shouting. Get ready get ready, the enemy has been defeated and God is about to throw a victory party of the likes we have never seen or heard of before. Don’t forget, the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof and all who dwell in it belong to Him. He hasn’t forgotten us, He remembers and He is about to celebrate with us.
