The story of Job is the worst excuse of unbelief.

You know the story of Job. He was righteous and there was no other like him on earth. Satan took away his health, his wealth and his children. Ashamed and devastated, he retreated to a cave where for days his friends chastised him with condemnation saying he was receiving punishment for his sins. His story is the most powerful (and worst) excuse for doubting God's will to bless, protect and prosper you and your loved ones. I hope that after reading this you'll never again doubt.

Ayoub. That is the name of Job in Hebrew. It means 'Hated one'. So who hated him? It surely wasn't God! Job was target numero uno for his enemy, Satan. When that thief presented himself to God, it was the Lord who mentioned Job first... but it wasn't to coax Satan to destroy his life. God was defending Job's honor. God literally told Satan "Why have you set your thoughts on Job? There is no one as good as him!" (Job 1:8 see YLT, my adaptation). It wasn't God at all that instigated this onslaught on Job. You see, Job was already in Satan's crosshairs because his life and legacy was a testament of God's goodness and righteousness. Of course, the devil's plans for him completely backfired and the man emerged from his ordeal stronger, wealthier, happier and far closer to God than ever before.

Understand that Jesus said it is Satan who steals, kills and destroys but He came to give life and life abundantly. Never get confused again - God is not the source of both good and evil. You are a child of God under the New Covenant written with the blood of Christ on your heart and not the finger of God on stones. Jesus has squashed this enemy, given you the keys of heaven and left you His power and authority to crush Satan. So today, if the works of the devil abound in your life, resist him and he will surely flee from you!

"I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you."
Luke 10:18,19
