Job 1:1-12, New Revised Standard Version
Every day God sets out a divine path and invites us to truth and travel. Sometimes the path is easier to travel and during other times more difficult. Job is given a path of struggle, stress and sacrifice. In reality, Job is invited on this path of obedience. This path can feel like abandonment. When on this path of obedience there are some things we must remember!
God designed us for good!
In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil. Job 1:1
God’s path makes us better!
When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would make arrangements for them to be purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, “Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular custom.” Job 1:5
God protects those on the divine path!
“But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.” The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord. Job 1:11-12
Hear the W.O.W., the Words of Wisdom,
“Learn to lean on God!”
