Job is one of the most popular bible characters. We all know his story so I am not going to go over it again. We will just glean a much neglected lesson as regards fulfilling purpose in life from his life.
We all know how the 😈devil, with God’s permission, put Job to a very extreme test.
If you believe that God is alive and he has not changed and you also believe that Satan is alive and he has not changed, then you will agree with me that what happened to Job is still happening to people today.
I mean, there are people in certain situations simply because the devil went to God to take permission to show them pepper🌶️🌶️🌶️. Yes, even in this day and time.
I want you to look at your life and consider the most difficult situation you are passing through right now. 🤔🤔🤔Could it be that God boasted about you in heaven of how that you will still follow him no matter what life throws at you and then the devil took permission to test you with some trials?
Maybe right now, God is in heaven eagerly hoping that you will not give up. That you will stick to the path of righteousness. He has planned to bless you a 100 fold if only you will just endure for one more day.
Whenever you are passing through any challenge in life I want you to tell yourself, “It is just a test, it will pass”.
Because Job endured till the end, today, his story is still keeping people from losing faith and trust in God. Satan has failed to draw many into depression because they heard of a man called Job who bowed down to worship God at the news of disaster. A lot of people have not committed suicide simply because they heard the story of Job and their hearts were strengthened by it.
Do you know that as a child of God, your trials are not ordinary? God will first screen that trial to see if it is too much for you before he lets you pass through it. because God is in it. He never allows anything more than you can bear. 1 Corinthians 10:13
If you do not deviate from righteousness and truth, no matter what you go through it will always end in praise.
