Job 1:21 – The LORD gave, and the LORD has take away, blessed be the name of the LORD!

And he said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.”  Job 1:21

Job acknowledged that all that he had was given by God. God had the right to give & to take since all came from him. All that we ought to do as His creatures is to acknowledge and worship him regardless of the circumstances we are placed in. This may be the most difficult thing for us to do since we live in a physical world. We need spiritual eyes and great faith to look beyond our losses & gains, to see that God sits on the throne in heaven ruling over all that happens. Blessed be the name of the Lord!
