Satan Exposed 4


As I stood in the vicinity of Mount Nebo (the place where Moses saw the promised land and later died), I was reminded that Satan's attack can strengthen our faith. Each attack Moses went through increased his faith and he died on Nebo a strong, saved man.

 

The same with Job. The devil questioned the strength of Job's faith, so God gave him permission to test Job. 'The Lord said to Satan, "All right then. Everything Job has is in your power, but you must not touch Job himself"'. God allowed the test, but He set the boundaries that Satan had to abide by. Job passed the test with flying colours and Satan complains that Job would have fallen had he had to face physical pain. Again, God gives permission and again, He sets the boundaries: 'Job is in your power, but you may not take his life'. Though Job faced a great deal of pain and ended up asking God a lot of questions, in the end, his faith and health were even better and stronger than before.

 

We might not understand the things we're having to face, or why we're facing them, but what we can know for sure is that God will bring good from it. 'We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him'. That 'good' might be a restoration of the things we've lost, even more blessings than we started with or a stronger relationship with God Himself.

 

Today, when we feel under spiritual attack, we can confidently say that God will make it good in the end. His plans are ultimately for good. Job said, "The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised". Whether we're going through good or bad, we should be praising God. His goodness and faithfulness remain the same whatever happens. Whatever you're going through today, take some time to worship God and praise Him for His goodness and faithfulness…

 

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. (The Greek for temptation and tempted can also mean testing and tested). (1Corinthians 10:13 NIV).

 

Let's Pray

Yahweh, I trust you today that you will give me the strength to get through any trial or obstacle. Father, like Moses I want to be faithful and strong when I come to my place of rest. God I'm ready for the promise to be fulfilled "all things will work together for my good" but like Job I will praise you when you give and take away knowing that the devil will not win in Jesus's Name. Amen.
