Thought for Today – Archie Boyle

Persevere in the difficult times.

The book of Job outlines the story of this prophet. He was a wealthy, gentle man who loved God. The book of Job explains that there is conversation between Satan and God in that Satan explains Job to be faithful to God because of the blessings Job enjoyed. God agreed to take away Job’s health, wealth and even family. Job still does not curse God. Satan was also given authority to afflict Job with painful sores which encompasses his entire body. To comfort Job his three friends (Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar) came to sympathize with him. The book of Job details the conversations Job had with these three friends. After all of the trials by Satan Job continues to show himself as a righteous man who fears and respects God. In conclusion, God’s blessings toward Job are even more numerous afterwards in comparison to the ones he had before this testing by Satan.
