    They heard Yahweh God's voice walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. Yahweh God called to the man, and said to him, "Where are you?" The man said, "I heard your voice in the garden, and I wa...

  • Yahweh restored Job's prosperity when he prayed for his friends. Yahweh gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10 WEB.

    There was a man named Job who went through a terrible trial. He suddenly lost everything, including his children, his servants, and his livestock. His wealth vanished. Then he became sick and was covered in painful sores and boils from head to foot. His health vanished.

    As Job sat in a pile of ashes and scraped the sores covering his body, his friends came and told him that it was because of the sinful life he had lived. That is what caused all of this to happen. But actually, Job had lived a blameless and upright life.

    Before this trial, Job had been a man of wealth and power, but now he had nothing. All of His children were gone. He was wiped out financially, and his health deteriorated. And it had all happened so quickly. Now his friends were against him. This was a low point.

    Yet, instead of Job becoming a bitter man at the end of the book, he prayed for those same misguided friends who had accused him. Then God reversed his situation. The Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. God turned the captivity of Job around and set him free when Job began to pray for someone else. Everything Job had lost, he gained back double. Read chapter one of Job, then chapter forty-two, and compare the numbers. It is all listed in detail.

    Jesus said: "Again, assuredly I tell you, that if two of you will agree on earth concerning anything that they will ask, it will be done for them by my Father who is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the middle of them." (Matthew 18:19'20 WEB).

    Solomon said: "Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him who is alone when he falls, and doesn't have another to lift him up." (Ecclesiastes 4:9'10 WEB).

    Pray for others, especially when they don't deserve it, even for the ones who look down on you. When you pray for others, God will move people to pray for you. How would you pray for them? Use the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Pray for the things you would like to see in your own life to happen in theirs. It could be what sets you free from your own captivity.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for all you do for me. Please show me those in need and teach me how to pray for them. Anoint me and guide me in this today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

Please Lord God help me to pray for others instead of giving into anger towards them because of the sin they are ensnared in. In Lord Christ Yeshua's name I pray this, Amen.

When I was going through a terrible few years with family issues and the death of my husband, I would feel like Job. I always tried to be a good person and wondered why all this was happening to me ( it wasn't only me but that's how I felt ugh). Thankfully these issues are done. Amen
