I will praise the name above all names!
Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens, you who have done great things. Who is like you, God? Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again;from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once more.
Job, after being severely afflicted and experiencing loss on a scale that few can imagine, was restored. Job 42:10 says, “After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before.” Job says to the Lord, “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” If God takes you to trials, He is able to bring you through them as well. God is in the business of restoration, and Jesus paid the price that makes reconciliation and restoration for everyone possible. Cry out to God – He will answer and be your strength.
