"And the Lord said to Satan, have you considered my servant Job? That, there is none like him on this earth? A perfect and an upright man, one that fears God, and eschews evil?"(KJV) Job 1:8
Anytime I read the story of Job, it sends chills down my spine because Satan knows who we are, whether we are upright and on the side of God or his (Satan’s) losing side! Another fact gives me even bigger chills and that God also sees us too and knows who we are for the same reasons!
From Job 1:8, God truly knows His children and He sure gave Job a fantastic recommendation which gave Satan the courage to test Job in order to prove God wrong! Talking of recommendation, Job must have done something to get the Almighty vouching for him! God said this about Job, “He is a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God and eschews evil.
How did Job get this recommendation? I believe Job 1:1 says blatantly, Job eschews evil! The good news Bible says “Job tries not to sin”
Brothers and sisters, do we try to live above reproach or are we living with the flow? Do we consider whether we would hurt God with our actions and words? We must all try to be like Job, we need to try to choose to do the right things anytime. We have no other options! When we surrender our will to the Holy Spirit, He will always help us make decisions that can please God!
I ask this question: will you truly get a good recommendation from the Almighty?
