"God is Good All the Time
and All the Time God is Good"
Job 1:21b-22 "...The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised. In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing."
When reading the first part of this Scripture, people tend to think that God stole the good from Job. He didn't. He allowed Satan to rob his servant. He wanted to test Job to see of he would remain faithful even while facing severe trials.
God will allow bad things to happen as a result of sin or to test us, but he himself doesn't give us the bad. He takes away the bad and gives the good. Or he may allow us to lose a normally good thing if we are using it to sin
(Example: Money). While some may understand this concept, others do not. This is why God did not hold Job accountable for accusing him of wrongdoing, because Job did not know that the perpetrator was Satan.
Another important point to note here it that Job still praised God, even when he lost everything. Would I praise God if I lost everything? More than likely I would complain and accuse God of not caring. I need to remember that God is good all the time and all the time God is good! I need to trust Him and praise him even during hard times.

“We have not
because we ask(pray) not”
The goals and dreams in your heart come from God. You may not be ready, but don’t quit praying. God will get you ready. Your dreams and goals will come. Never give up. He put them there for a reason.
