Daily Meditations: The Example Of Job

Daily Meditations: The Example Of Job

By Reno Omokri | Op-Ed Contributor on February 3, 2014

Job was the Godliest man of his time. He was also the richest man of his time. A combination of Bill Graham and Bill Gates in one package.

If you desire the type of blessings that God gave Job, ask yourself if you will be as Godly as Job if God blessed you with wealth. From The Bible we learn that both God and satan are constantly going from one end of the earth to the other seeking a man who can handle great wealth and power and still love God.

We see this in 2 Chronicles 16:9 “for the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him”.

We see this in Job 1:7 “The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it”.

God is scanning this world for great faith, Satan is scanning this world to bring people of such great faith down.

If you can resist Satan, like Job did, then God will unleash on you the abundant life that His Son Jesus talked about. But if you cannot, God loves you enough to keep wealth from you so that you will not gain the whole world and lose your soul!
