Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8 (NLT)
Job had a relationship with God, his relationship with God was not connected to earthly things. Job served God out of the heart of faith; it was his faith which strengthened him when everything was destroyed or taken away. God is still God in the middle of our test.
It is so important for one has to make a choice before the test comes, to be faithful to the relationship to God, no matter the cost
Is there anything noteworthy in your life that would make you a threat to Satan? Job
was a man given to obeying and serving God. Yet God ask Satan have you considered
my servant Job? Why did God do that? God wanted Job to see it was not his possessions
that kept him stable, but his relationship to God. Now today you and I have Job as an example to follow, and we too can say as Job did:
Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Job 13:15 (NKJV)
Will you determine like Job to follow God no matter what Satan, self, or the Savior
allows to come your way? Will you say as Job though Satan slays me I will stay in relationship with God Almighty, the author, and finisher of my faith! Job’s wife, his friends they all give him all the reasons he needed to curse God and die. Job stayed faithful to God to the end of his test! Job not only remains committed, but he is also rewarded f or doing so!
Job remained faithful to God as their relationship was not built on things of the world. Job’s relation with God was a relationship built on love and respect for who God was. I encourage you today to stand firm on the Word of God in times of test, trials or spiritual assaults. God will not leave you, nor
forsake you when you put your whole-hearted trust in Him. God will see you through for the praise of His glory and the building of His Kingdom.
In times of test, remember it’s an open book test , the Word of God will always lead you to victory. You will make it, not only will you make it, you will go through to pass the test. You will as Job did, will be rewarded too!
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 (NKJV)
Will you as Job did, will you trust God in every circumstance, every battle, every victory to stay with you no matter what happens in the natural?
