Job and Jesus

Image

We live our lives wanting God to answer of all of my questions. Job went through life and his trial without questions answered.

In fact when he question God, God asked him more questions. Life is not about questions answered. It is about living despite wrestling with questions.

Job triumphed over his test. He never knew why he was tried.

For us, we are told he was tested to prove Satan wrong. A man with questions, without answers, without family, without encouragement, without wealth, without health won.

He beat Satan without anything. He never even knew that he won.

Are you going through any of the above? Do you know that your trial is witnessed by the terrestrial world? Do you realize the angelic world looks to you as their hero?

1 Corinthians 4:9
9 For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like men condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men.

God chose Job and his chosen man won. He singled out this man to go into a contest with the mightiest of fallen angels. He won.

Centuries later the Father singled out his Son in the river by saying He is the Son that God loves. He was then brought to Satan for him to test.

Jesus not only won. He won as you. He was stripped of everything. Including his clothes. He was stripped of everything. Yet he won.

If you find yourself lacking know this, it does not in anyway undermined your strength against your enemy. It doesn’t undermined your position. It doesn’t undermined how God looks at you.

Satan lost to man who had his life preserved in Job. Satan lost to man who had his life not spared in Jesus.

You are much stronger than Job. He wished he had an advocate on high. You on the other hand have one. His name is Jesus. He is in you.

So look at your provision. Not your lack. Don’t give up. Cause when you think you are losing it, you are about to give the Snake the final punch.

You are winning. The angels are cheering. The victory is already won. You are now participating in that victory.
