You have granted me life and favor, and your visitation has preserved my spirit.
– Job 10:12
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Job’s words reveal to us the fact that although he underwent Satan’s temptation and suffered a lot, he neither complained nor denied God. Regardless of whether God gave things to him or took them away from him, he could thank and praise God from the bottom of his heart, and still held fast his integrity and faith in God. Job’s conduct is really worthy of emulation. Just as God says, “In his heart, Job profoundly believed that all he possessed had been bestowed upon him by God, and had not come off the back of his own labor. Thus, he did not see these blessings as something to be capitalized upon, but took holding on to the way that he should by tooth and nail as his living principles. He cherished God’s blessings, and gave thanks for them, but he was not enamored of, nor did he seek more blessings. Such was his attitude toward property. He neither did anything for the sake of gaining blessings, nor worried about or was aggrieved by the lack or loss of God’s blessings; he neither became wildly, deliriously happy because of God’s blessings, nor ignored the way of God or forgot the grace of God because of the blessings he frequently enjoyed.”
