7 And though you started with little, you will end with much.. Job 8:7 NLT
Bildad also wrongly assumes that Job has committed some transgression and God is disciplining Job for that sin. But Bildad is correct in the statement that he makes. “But if you pray to God and seek the favor of the Almighty, and if you are pure and live with integrity, He will surely rise up and restore your happy home”. And his statement in verse 7 above turns out to be a prophecy for Job. Job definitely ends up with twice as much as he had in the beginning. If we faithfully persevere in the times of testing, we will be blessed here on earth. The greatest of these blessings is not material possessions or anything that money can buy. It is the peace and the joy that comes from knowing that we are pleasing our heavenly Father. From my own personal experience, I can testify that there is a peace that each of us can access that is different from what the world knows as peace. It is a peace that will guard our hearts and our minds. It is a peace that keeps from thinking those thoughts that satan would use to destroy us. It is a peace that assures us that we are not alone now and we will never be alone. Although the peace you have now may be little, focus on Jesus and you will have abundant peace and joy that is truly unspeakable.
