Job’s steadfast faith

Paul exhorts us to be prepared to withstand evil schemes of Satan. (Ephesians 6:13) Jeremiah stated that if we cannot run with foot soldiers, how can we compete with horses; our faith is weary in peace time, how can we withstand calamities? (Jeremiah 12:5) When the faith of many is shaken by even just a headache or a minor loss of money, Job’s wife was amazing. Job is a classic example who could withstand relentless, ruthless, and savage attacks of Satan, expressing his gratitude and worship to God. “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” (Job 1:21)
1) Did not panic: Job did not panic when he received one of the other reports of damage, disaster, and death. He was sure the Sovereign God was in control.
2) Honestly mourned: He did not pretend to be a giant in faith, instead tore his garments and shaved his head and mourned.
3) Grateful to God: He did not think it was his smartness, or intelligence or business sense that brought him wealth. Hence, he declared, ‘The Lord gave.’
4) No doubt or unbelief: There was no trace of unbelief, but an expression of faith in worship. Hence, he is considered as righteous along with Noah and Daniel. (Ezekiel 14:14, 20)
5) No despair, hope: Job had eternal perspective that what he was going through was just temporary or a season of trials.
6) No anger but faith: It is interesting he did not get angry or curse the stupid servants or the Sabeans or Chaldeans. He did not blame the position of his stars or the wickedness of the evil attackers. Interestingly, he did not blame Satan, as He knew, Satan had no power unless God permitted him. His steadfast faith is commended by James. (James 5:11)
7) Worshipped God: Job worshipped for what God is, his unchanging attributes. He did not even blame himself, as he trusted God’s grace, mercy, and goodness.
