In short, the book of Job is about a man who was 100% faithful to God even though he had EVRYTHING taken from him. God knew he could trust Job to stay faithful, so he choose him to be the one to bare such great loss. Satan however was in the Lords ear talking to him basically making bets that Job would forsake him if he didn’t bless him. Job talked to God in chapters 1 and 2. He went right along with the angels and had a full conversation with God. Now the story of Job is great and we can all learn about being faithful in times of trouble, but the real story is the relationship between Satan and God.
Not only did God talk to him, he entertained Satan’s request to mess with Job. I thought wow God you really had a full convo with the devil? Crazy right? WRONG. Satan knew his place and he knew he did not have all authority when it came to God. He also knew he could approach God even with the mess he was bringing. My conviction came on Tuesday two days after church. I’ve talked to God and prayed to him, but I was challenged to do more. Immediately I texted a few friends challenging them to talk to God AT LEAST twice a day. If Satan talked to God twice during that time, that should challenge us to step up and show out. He needs to be on the mainline twice (morning and night), but throughout the day as well. We need him to show us what to say, how to respond, how to dress, and what to do in certain situations. We don’t need God just for major moves, we need to keep it as plain as saying “God what do you want me to do today?” “ Who do you want me to help?” “How do you want me to spend my money?”
I challenge you to do this during the week and let me know how it worked. I promise I never sit at Gods table (reading the word, praying), and leave hungry! God always fills me with a thought, revelation, insight, and overall hope that it is working out and I can stay strong. I pray you have a Happy Sunday and a good week. I hope to see all my Pinky Promise sisters at the conference this week as well!
I love you! Any questions comments concerns leave them at the contact tab on this site or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m praying for you, pray for me. Don’t forget the challenge.
