Rabbi Schneider - Nothing Wasted, Nothing Lost!
TOPICS: Rabbi Schneider: Devotions, Seeds of Revelation

Well many of us know people that have biblical names. Even names like Ruth, and we have Israel, many Israels in Israel that I meet. And all kinds of... Matthew's a biblical name, Luke's a biblical name. And we can go on about all the different people that we may have met over the years that have biblical names. But you know, one name in the Bible that I've never heard a parent name their child is Job. Many of us know the story of Job. The Book of Job begins by saying that Job was the most righteous and wealthiest man in all the land of the east. I mean, Job was a pillar in the Lord. God had truly blessed him.

And we read the story, and the story goes that one day when the angels of the Lord appeared before HaShem, when the angels of the Lord appeared before Father God, one day we read in the Book of Job, Satan appeared along with them. And the Lord said to Satan, have you considered my servant Job? How he's blameless. And Satan said back to the Lord yeah, but you bless him, I mean you protect him, you give him everything he wants, you protect his entire life. No wonder he loves you. Satan said let me stretch forth my hand against him, and then we'll see, God, if he still loves you.

And as the story goes on we find that the Lord gives Satan permission to attack Job. And the attack is severe. I mean Job loses his family, he loses his health, he loses his reputation. He loses all of it. But here's what we don't understand, and this is the reason that, I think, no one's ever named their child after Job. At the end of the Book of Job, we find that not only was Job's fortunes restored to him, but they were restored to him even more so. And beyond that at the end of the Book of Job, Job said this. He said this to God, he said, God, he said, Father, before I'd heard about you, I believed in You, I'd heard about You. He said but now that I've been through this and have come out the other end, Job said, now I know you for myself.

So even though Job went through this tremendous trial, I mean incredible trial, tremendous difficulty. The good news, beloved is he came out the other end with even more. I want to encourage you today, if you're going through a trial, regardless of how severe it is, based on the Word of God, if you'll hang onto the Lord through your trial, you're gonna come out the other end of that thing as gold refined in the fire, greater than you were before you went into it. Nothing will be wasted. Nothing will be lost. This is Rabbi Schneider saying God loves you, and maybe there's a friend that you need to pass this on to.
