Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Hebrews 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

The testimony God gave about Job shows he was someone God can really trust so much that He even defended him before Satan.

What about you? What would God say about you?

This life we’re living here on earth is a short one and we need to have a testimony that can stand for eternity.

All the riches and belongings are temporal( Proverbs 11:4) but our character, who we are is what we’ll carry to eternity.

The devil accuses God’s people day and night but if we will make God our strength we will have a record in Heaven like Job did.

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. 7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

Can we also be defended by God before the accuser of the brethren?

To have this testimony that we are God’s own we must live according to the word of God.

May God help us remain faithful unto Him.

All suffering is not the result of a perverted life. Job is brought before us as a man whom the Lord permitted Satan to afflict. The enemy stripped him of all he possessed; his family ties were broken; his children were taken from him. For a time his body was covered with loathsome sores, and he suffered greatly. His friends tried to make him see that he was responsible, by his sinful course, for all his afflictions. But he denied the charge, declaring, “Miserable comforters are ye all.” By seeking to prove Job guilty before God, and deserving of punishment, his friends brought a grievous test upon him, and placed God in a false light; but Job did not swerve from his loyalty, and God rewarded his faithful servant. {ST, June 21, 1899 par. 6}

The Lord God is exact and infallible in His comprehension. He understands the working of the human mind, the active principles of the human agents He has formed, just how they will be moved upon by the objects that come before them, and in what manner they will act under every temptation that can try them and in every circumstance in which they are placed. “The ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and He pondereth all his goings” [Proverbs 5:21]. “The eyes of the Lord are in every place” [Proverbs 15:3]. “He looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heavens” [Job 28:24]. “The Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts” [1 Chronicles 28:9]. He knows the things that come into our minds, every one of them. “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do” [Hebrews 4:13]. {13MR 311.2}
