"God is in Control"


Job 1:8

“And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?”

“Hast thou considered my servant Job…..?” Job’s problems were not started by what Satan said but by the comment of God Himself. God knew that what Job needed was to really see himself. Satan was simply used by God to bring about his purpose. God left the means to Satan, and when Satan had used these up, proving nothing against Job (2:10 “…. In all this did not Job sin with his lips”.), we hear no more of him in connection with Job. But God’s purpose was not yet carried out – Job did not know his own heart. What Satan had failed to accomplish was brought about by the “sympathy” of Job’s friends! Job was upright, but he began to focus on his own righteousness, proving that he had never truly and completely relied on God alone.

Friends, God is in control. We must learn to trust in, rely on, and adhere to Him and Him alone.


Yours in Christ,

Pastor Jeff
