THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
BETTER OFF THAN YOU WERE BEFORE
In the Scripture, Job went through a time of severe TESTING of his faith. When God had said to Satan that there was “none like Job in all the land,” Satan answered, “Yes, but I can’t touch HIM. You’ve put a HEDGE around his life. If You will remove the hedge and let me GET to him, he’ll curse You.” Notice that the enemy can’t just do whatever he wants. He has to ask God for PERMISSION. For HIS part, Job fought the good fight and in the END, not only did he NOT curse God, but he came out with DOUBLE.
When YOU go through tough times, you have a bad break, you’re facing a sickness, do NOT get discouraged. Remember, there are boundaries around your life put in place by the most powerful force in the UNIVERSE. Keep moving FORWARD, and you’ll not only come out as JOB did, but God will bring you out BETTER off than you were BEFORE.
Job 1:10, NIV
“Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has?”
