In Job chapter 1 we find Job going about his business and we find satan "going to and fro in the earth." It reminds me of 1 Peter 5:8, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."
Of special encouragement to me today is the fact that it was GOD, in verse 8, who called Job "a good and an upright man, one that feared God and avoided evil." So this was not Job's estimation of himself, or the author of the book of Job's estimation of Job....it was God's estimation of Job.
And so today, satan is still gong about seeking those who he can trip up, stumble and cause to shipwreck their lives. BUT our faithful God has provided all we need to stand in this evil day.
and in the power of HIS might.
Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil." Eph 6:10-11
I am so grateful for HIS provision in my life today.
