url“There was a man named Job; and that man was blameless and upright, one who feared God and shunned evil.…….. Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. And the Lord said to Satan,

“From where do you come Satan?” Satan answers, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it. Then the Lord said to Satan, and my question to you today my friends, before the storms of our life even begin, can our Savior give a shout out to all who will listen as He tells the world “Have you considered my friend and servant?

In addition, there is none like him [or her] on the earth, a blameless and upright man [and woman], one who fears God and shuns evil. Satan tells God You have made a hedge around him and all he has on every side this is why you can boost about him Job 1:1-10 (NKJV) God’s faith in His friend is now tested as He tells Satan, you can touch all areas of his life only don’t touch Him. Job’s faith is then stretched to the limit. He loses everything, including His Children.

Then Job arose, tore his robe, shaved his head; fell to the ground and worshiped God in the midst of His storm. “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there. TheSANTO JOB2 Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Before Job’s storm started, Christ knew the character of His friend, because Job had walked and talked with God daily, allowing a complete transformation of His character into the likeness of God. So“In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.” In other words he did not complain to the Lord saying Lord! Why are you allowing these things to happen in my life?

Then in Chapter 2 Satan comes back again, God has all bragging rights now “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth,….And still he holds fast to his integrity, although you incited Me against him, to destroy him without cause.”

God knew His friend and what type of faith and endurance he would exemplify because Job never ceased to praise God in all seasons of his life and in every situations and circumstances.

18_Jb_02_03_RGSo Satan now ask permission from God. Let me touch His body? For us it might be cancer, or MS, or heart disease, or diabetes. My friends, we all know health issues in this sinful world are endless. But what God tells Satan is once again so amazing, we should all Pray that one Day God has this much faith in us.

In Job 2:6 (NKJV)  it states, and the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your hand, but spare his life.” In other words sift him as much as you want only spare his life. Satan then touches Jobs body with boils and Jobs faith is tested once again, his wife even tells Job to “curse God and die”

Woman! You speak foolish [are you crazy], he tells her. “Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In allLuke-10 this Job did not sin with his lips.” Job 2:10 (NKJV) My friends, where do we stand in adversity?

Can God boast and say to Satan and to the world “have you considered my servant my friend who prays without ceasing, the one who never stops telling others about Me and praising my name, whose time, money and talents, yes all they have they dedicate to Me.

My friends, if God cannot say those things about us, time is running out because if we are God’s Children “soon and very soon” He comes and His “reward is with Him, and He will give to each person according to what they have done.”Rev. 22:12 (NIV)


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
