Text: Job 14:1-2, 7-9

πŸ“–1….”Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.
πŸ“–2….He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not….
πŸ“–7….For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
πŸ“–8….Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;
πŸ“–9….Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.”

Message:

πŸ”₯If God makes trees that have been cut down to sprout by the scent of water, what do you think He will do for humans who receive the scent of God’s Word? Whatever water is to trees, that’s what God’s word is to man. The word of God is the power of God in man to surmount distresses. Extreme sorrow, suffering and pain, which characterize distress, are not the natural habitats of man. Man, as God’s image, ought to be a help supplier, instead of being in need of help. If any man has climbed out of the pit of disobedience into which Adam and Eve plunged humanity, such a one becomes free from natural distresses.

πŸ”₯πŸ”₯Job 14 lays it bare that, no matter how man born of a woman struggles, he can’t be free from troubles. This is because of the deed of the woman in Gen 3:6, which must be avoided by humans, no matter who is pressurising us to do it. We mustn’t go against God’s Word. When the prophet from Judah in 1 Kgs 13 went against God’s Word, he paid with his life. Your cultural heritage that is not Christian, cannot replace God’s Word. Note that the God of the Christians created the people that formed those cultures.

πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯In Nahum 1:7, the Bible talks about three qualities of our God when man is in distress. Just as God planted a garden for Adam before he got married…Gen 2:8, so He makes a way of escape from distresses for man today (1 Cor 10:13), before man gets into them. Because God is good, when He sees that we trust in Him, He will send forth His goodness to us in our distresses and have us pulled out. Thereafter, He stands as our stronghold against subsequent distresses. If we repent as David did in 2 Sam 24:10 who went against God’s Word and numbered Israel in 1 Chro 21:1-4, God will also stop our destroyers…1 Chro 21:15.
