The Bible and the wisdom of living, make it clear that it is possible to lose things, people, positions, time and even miss out in destiny.
In the Bible, Moses was never designed to die on the way. His prophetic calling was to deliver the people from Egypt, into a land flowing with milk and honey, yet he never made it there.
God has the power to bring supernatural deliverance and restoration from negative situations (Psalm 74:12). Losses, tragedies and calamities are real; calamity sustains the ability to negatively rewrite the destinies of men.
God is at work in us, both to will and to do of His good pleasure; He sustains the power to bring people, nations and economies to a place of restoration (Job 42:10-17).
The story of Job depicts God’s ability to restore men from tragedy and calamity (Job 42:10-17). God has the ability to command things, influence people, and alter conditions, which is what distinguishes Him as The Lord and The One with the power to speak to things, causing them to obey Him. (Jonah 1:1-15, 2:1-2).
What is a Calamity?- A calamity is defined as a great misfortune or disaster. – A calamity is defined as an event marked by great loss, distress and suffering. In the Bible, Job’s wife urged him to “curse God and die”. This indicates that there are words and actions within human capacity that can potentially provoke calamity or tragedy from the spiritual realm.
