I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. -Psalm 119:11
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where a friend volunteered you for something that you had NO intention of engaging in? Often, it may not be that serious but it still can be annoying.
Well imagine when GOD volunteers you for something that you could have been completely fine without.
That is what happened to Job.
He was minding his own business. Living life blameless and upright. Pleasing God and loving his family and then it happened...
God decided to put HIS name on the line for Job and asked Satan if he had CONSIDERED Job as someone to “mess” with! And this was not any type of “mess.” This was the type that caused Job to lose his children, his livelihood, and his mind at one point.
But here is what Job didn’t lose. He didn’t lose his soul because it was deeply anchored in GOD! The waves grew high but Job remained in God’s presence. Even with his questions and doubts. He hid them in God!
Here is what Job says: (Job 23:10)
“But He knows the way I take; When He has tried me, I shall come forth as GOLD” [Scripture of Week]
How beautiful to see God trust his servant Job so much that He would consider him for such a task!
Would God consider YOU for something like this?
