You Will Prove the Devil Wrong
 
THURSDAY
NOV.8

Job 1:9-11 (GNB), Job 2:10b (GNB)
Satan replied, "Would Job worship you if he got nothing out of it? You have always protected him and his family and everything he owns. You bless everything he does, and you have given him enough cattle to fill the whole country. But now suppose you take away everything he has—he will curse you to your face!"*His wife said to him, … Why don't you curse God and die?"…Even in all this suffering Job said nothing against God.

 Author PhotoIn our text above, the devil accused Job of not loving God in a genuine manner. He was essentially saying that Job was a fair-weather child of God who only served God when things were rosy and going his way. But thank God that Job proved the devil wrong. The horrible experience of losing all he had and almost losing his life did not cause Job to give up his faith in God; even when his wife urged him to just curse God and die. One way to prove the devil wrong in the same way that Job did is to ensure that your faith in God is not based on your current circumstances or on what God chooses to give to you. Learn to be content, remain joyful and trusting in God in all situations and at all times.

In Philippians 4:12-13 (GNB), Apostle Paul said,“I know what it is to be in need and what it is to have more than enough. I have learned this secret, so that anywhere, at any time, I am content, whether I am full or hungry, whether I have too much or too little. I have the strength to face all conditions by the power that Christ gives me.”

With or without those things, God remains God and His plan and will for your life cannot be stopped. You are always complete in Christ (Col.2:10), so remain strong and keep doing exploits. Like Job, you will come out better on the other side, (Job 42:12).1Corinthians 15:57-58 (NIV) says, “but thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

PRAYER:  Nothing shakes my faith in God. In every situation that I find myself in, I will worship, trust God and do exploits for Him.
