August 30, Today’s thought – Job

Good Morning

Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

Such was Job’s character as given by God.
He asked Satan,
“Hast thou considered my servant Job,
that there is none like him in the earth?”
Satan, in reply, says in effect,
“Strip him and he will curse Thee to thy face.”
Satan sought Job’s fall; God sought his blessing.
Satan gets leave from God to strip Job.
With malignant energy he sets to work,
and in one day he brings the greatest man in all the East
into abject poverty and visits him with sore bereavement.
Blow after flow of such a crushing nature
and with such rapidity falls upon Job,
that one marvels at the testimony of the the Holy Ghost that:
“In all this did not Job sin with his lips.”
What a triumph for God!
What a defeat for Satan!
“from Springs in the Valley, Cowman

Job 1:22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

Consider Job’s example . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
