Heavenly Father, thank You for the many examples of men of faith who resisted the devil and stood firm in the evil day. I pray that like Job, Paul, Peter and others I too would stand firm in the truth of the gospel of God and trust in Your unfailing love. Thank You that we have been equipped with the whole armour of God and that His grace is sufficient to deal with all the fiery darts of the evil one. Thank You for my position in Christ and I pray that I would live and work to honour Your name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, as I consider the story of Job, I begin to see that there are none that are righteous - not even one, and that only by faith in Your dearly beloved Son, and His righteousness, can we be declared righteous in Your sight. Thank You that Jesus is our kinsman-Redeemer - the Days-man for Whom Job longed and our sacrifice for sin. Thank You for the lessons we can learn from every character in the book of Job. Help me to make the right choices in my life and to trust You, no matter what circumstances may arise. Keep me from speaking foolish words when faced with adversity and thank You that Your grace is always sufficient. Help me to live by faith in Your word and not to be swayed by sight or feelings - even when I don't understand.. this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
