The Power of the Protector and Provider

Job 5: "6 But evil does not spring from the soil, and trouble does not sprout from the earth. 7 People are born for trouble as predictably as sparks fly upward from a fire. 8 "My advice to you is this: Go to God and present your case to him. 9 For he does great works too marvelous to understand. He performs miracles without number. 10 He gives rain for the earth. He sends water for the fields. 11 He gives prosperity to the poor and humble, and he takes sufferers to safety. 12 He frustrates the plans of the crafty, so their efforts will not succeed. 13 He catches those who think they are wise in their own cleverness, so that their cunning schemes are thwarted. 14 They grope in the daylight as though they were blind; they see no better in the daytime than at night. 15 He rescues the poor from the cutting words of the strong. He saves them from the clutches of the powerful. 16 And so at last the poor have hope, and the fangs of the wicked are broken."

Once again- the person reading this has made a choice- God is there or He is not. If you believe He is not there, then you see my faith as foolish and simple. You see all of this as either randon chance or product of aliens. How do you explain evil? Do you believe it exists? How do you handle struggles? Is there hope?

Go and present your case to God.

As I read the above passage, I am filled with admiration for my Father. I am humbled that He cares for me. He provides for me- He protects me. If He is not in your life- You are not protected, nor provided for.

But you can be adopted by HIm today- cry out to HIm. He has provided a greatway to Him. It is a person, and His name is Jesus.
