For Job said, “ It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” Thus Job did regularly. Job 1:5
Who took away all that Job had? The devil
And the Lord said to satan, “ Look all that Job has is in your power.” Job 1:12
Somewhere down the line Job had given power to the devil!
For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me and what I dreaded has happened to me. Job 3:25
Did God allow it? No. I believe Job allowed fear causing satan to have power
What did Job fear? Maybe everything that he had would be taken from him
What happens when we Greatly fear something? Do we lose faith?
What happens when we blame God?
Did Job blame God?
The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Job 1:21
God does not give a spirit of fear. He gives a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. 2Tim 1:7
I believe that fear is the opposite of faith. I believe that Job was afraid that he was gonna lose what God had given him. Then Job started to lose his faith and this gave power to satan. Then Job started blaming God as some of us do when bad things happen. i believe that God doesn’t allow bad things to happen. Only good things come from God.
Don’t be deceived believers, every good gift and perfect gift comes from above. James 1:16-17…I believe that once Job got his theology right, God gave him back more than he had in the beginning!
Job answered the Lord saying,
“I know you can do everything. You make plans, and nothing can change or stop them.
You asked, ‘Who is this ignorant person saying these foolish things?’
I talked about things I did not understand.
I talked about things too amazing for me to know.
“You said to me, ‘Listen, and I will speak.
I will ask you questions, and you will answer me.’
In the past I heard about you,
but now I have seen you with my own eyes.
And I am ashamed of myself. I am so sorry.
As I sit in the dust and ashes I promise to change my heart and my life.”
