Fall To the Ground In Worship?

Hello, God has given me something in Job 1:20-21 which says,

“At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship 21and said:

   “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, 
   and naked I will depart.[a] 
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; 
   may the name of the LORD be praised.””

Worship: Job was a wonderful man. He had ten children, seven sons, and three daughters. His children liked to have feasts on their birthdays. After the parties, Job would purify them. He thought that they might have sinned inwardly at the parties. God had blessed him very much. One time, the Angels were coming to God, and Satan came with them. He eventually got permission to do whatever he pleased with all the Job owned, but he could not hurt Job. So, one day servant after servant came to Job, telling him that his children had died, and about a number of other things. At this, Job tore his robes, shaved his head, and fell down in worship. Job worshiped God, instead of cursing him as Satan had hoped. He praised God, even when his physical circumstances were in a horrible condition.

Christians: God has saved us from our sins. He has saved us from death from sins. But, unbelievers are not saved. They are still in sin. If you are and unbeliever, then why don’t  you come to Christ? Why don’t you come and be saved? Jesus is mighty to save, and He will love you. Why not take The Way to heaven. Why not experience God’s love. Why not have the Peace that only the Prince of Peace gives? Why not be saved today, and be able to rejoice in Christ? Jesus will love you.

What to do: Here is one thing, in application to this passage, that we are to do as Christians: Praise God. God has done so much for us: He has given His own son on the Cross for us, and He has let us be saved from sins. He has let us be able to praise Him. So, let’s worship Him with all of our heart, and soul, and mind. Also, we should spread the Gospel to unbelievers. They are still in sin, so let’s share the Gospel with them. Let us share the key of the Gospel to remove our chains.

God: God is so good, He has given His own son for us. He has loved us so much. Praise His name, and rejoice in Him. Jesus has died on the cross for us, and He has risen again. Let us give thanks to Him. God blessed Job, and He tested Him, God has blessed us too. Let’s rejoice in Christ, and love Him with all of our hearts. He is so good to us, so let us give thanks to Him. Thank You, Jesus! Jesus has died on the cross for us, and not only that, but He rose again on the third day! Thank You, Jesus!

Application: How does Job 1:20-21 apply to us? God had blessed Job, and then tested him. We might go through hard times, but God has blessed us so much, so let’s praise Him for it. He has given Christ for us. When we go through hard times, we should thing of Christ, and then praise God. Jesus went through so much more for us. Job blessed God during hardship, and we should do that too. The Disciples rejoiced to be counted worthy (Acts 5:41). We may be hard pressed on every side, but we are not crushed (2 Corinthians 4:8-9).

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You for blessing me. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to draw close to You. Please help me to grow in You, and more like You. Please strengthen me in You, and help me to walk with You more. Help me to talk with You more. Thank You for dying on the cross for me. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Please help me not to be proud. Please help me to run to You in times of trouble. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse(s):

Rejoiced to be counted worthy, Acts 5:41,

“The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.”

Hard pressed but not crushed, 2 Corinthians 4:8-9,

“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”

Beginning verse, Job 1:20-21,

“At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship 21and said:

   “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, 
   and naked I will depart.[a] 
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; 
   may the name of the LORD be praised.””


Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
