Job 1:1-8 part 1

“There once was a man named Job who lived in the land of Uz. He was blameless—a man of complete integrity. He feared God and stayed away from evil. He had seven sons and three daughters. He owned 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 teams of oxen, and 500 female donkeys. He also had many servants. He was, in fact, the richest person in that entire area.” v. 1-3

“Then the Lord asked Satan, ‘Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless—a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil.’” v. 8
Job was a model of trust and obedience to God, yet God permitted Satan to attack him in an especially harsh manner. Although God loves us, believing and obeying him do not shelter us from life’s calamities. Setback, tragedies, illness and sorrows strike Christians as well as Non-Christians alike. But in our test and trials God expects us to express our faith to the world.

When trouble hits how do you respond? Do you ask God, “Why Me????” or do you say, “Use me”? There is so we can learn from Jobs leadership, Integrity, and Faithfulness.
