In this article we will talk about Job, a man who remained whole, faithful and just before God, regardless of the difficulties he was going through. This is a story that can be very useful in our day to day, since we often find ourselves in trouble in our daily lives and do not know why we are going through there.
In the first chapter of the book of Job, we realize in the first verses that Job was a righteous man and at the same time possessed great riches, had a beautiful family, in a few words, Job had everything that any man in our society would like to have. However, this greatly upset Satan and that is why he told God that Job only served him for the material goods that God had allowed him to have. And God allowed satan to touch the property, health and even Job’s family.
And after that conversation satan did not hesitate to take away everything he had from Job; He took away his cattle, his family, his property and even his health. And it is exactly at times like these, when we lose everything, that we know if we really are faithful followers of our God.
But in that great trial Job was not alone, God was watching each one of his words, his heart, his thoughts. And although later we see Job overwhelmed by the trials, chapter one shows us that Job did not need anything to be faithful to his God. Are you in a big trial without knowing what to do? Go to God, believe in Him, embrace Him and sooner or later you will see His powerful hand.
