2.  PRAISE GOD IN SPITE OF CIRCUMSTANCES

Job said, "I was born with nothing, and I’ll die with nothing.  The Lord gave, and now He has taken away.  May His name be praised!  In spite of everything that had happened, Job did not sin by blaming God.”  Job 1:21-22 

 “Even though the fig trees have no fruit and no grapes grow on the vines, even though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no grain, even though the sheep all die and the cattle stalls are empty, I’ll still be joyful and glad because the Lord God is my Savior.”Hab. 3:17-18

4.  KEEP FOCUSED ON GOD AND HIS PROMISES 

“Therefore we do not lose heart…For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”  2 Cor. 4:16-18 

Jesus: “(By) trusting Me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace.  In this godless world, you will continue to experience difficulties.  But take heart!  I've conquered the world."   John 16:33 

“Do you see what we've got?  An unshakable kingdom!  And do you see how thankful we must be?  Not only thankful but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God!”  Heb. 12:28 

“Those who worship God will be encouraged.” Ps. 69:32
