Does God sometimes

Make you toss and Turn?

JOB 7:4

When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise,

and the night be gone?

And I am full of tossings to and fro until

the dawning of the day!!

Man that’s Short but Powerful isn’t it!!!!!

How many of you tonight know that the

troubles of life can cause you to loose sleep?

Even sometimes Your troubles can be so

great that you pray for the morning to hurry

up and come, so you can at least go on to

work and forget about all your problems

for a little while!!!

Troubles along with the devil will test you

and find out just what you’re made of!!

Everyone has had a situation, or a

problem that seemed to have no solution

and not to mention a reason why it was

happening to you.

Especially if you’re a Christian!!!

Sometimes it seems like that when you’re

trying to live for God that troubles and problems

just come at you from every direction!!!

And sometimes the troubles of this Christian

walk seem to treat us un-fair!!! AMEN

But as Christians we have to understand that

many are the afflictions of the righteous. OR

In other words righteous folks have to go thru!

The word righteous is our key word here!

First of all, we have to understand

that there are two types of righteousness:

one is to be self righteous.

That means you think you’re better than every-

one.

Like for example

a person who thinks they are righteous because

they don’t cuss, smoke, drink, do drugs and so on, but still looks down on those who do without offering a word of Godly advice is self righteous.

But now listen to me, Just because you don’t do any of those things don’t make you righteous!!

Because a lot of church folk don’t do any of that, but they’re guilty of other stuff like not speaking to their neighbor or holding a grudge against somebody, or wanting to be seen or recognized for what they do in the church!!!!!

Are we hittin some nerve’s yet????

Let me straighten something out!!

To be righteous in God is to be made new again.

Apostle Paul said in 2nd Corinthians 5:17:

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new!!! AMEN

To be in Christ, means to be the anointed one and His anointing is in all of us, IF we allow it to be!!!

How many of you will agree with me that anointed people go thru a lot more trials, tribulations, and so forth

than say a sinner does???

(There must not be no anointed people in here tonight!!!)

In our short reading tonight, we find a man who is going through a severe testing of his faith!!

Only Job, here is not aware that he is the subject of a spiritual contest between God and the devil.

The book of Job is called one of the most profound books in all the bible for it confronts head on the toughest question of a Christian experience!!!!!AMEN

Why do the righteous suffer and the evil prosper??

Or as every Christian has ever cried out over the ages, What did I do to deserve this?

Or Why is this happening to me??

Have you ever asked God questions like that, while you’re in your midnight suffering?? That caused you to lay awake and toss and turn???
