Job 1:8 KJV
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?
A couple of days ago, after an unpleasant incident at work, a colleague of mine asked me an interesting question. It wasn’t the first time I was hearing such a question. He asked why bad things happen to good people.
In his estimations, what happened isn’t something that should have happened at all in the first place, speak less of who it happened to.
Job found himself in the middle of a little contest or wager between God and the devil. All was fine with him until God asked the devil whether he had spotted Job.
Why wouldn’t God just keep Job out of their discussions, if He knew the discomfort its consequences would bring to Job? Perhaps the quality of the man’s worship and his reverence for God couldn’t keep heaven mute. Discussions about him were held, more discussions upon discussions. The man was a subject of heavenly conversations.
Godly people don’t suffer for nothing. When your world and everything seem to be crumbling down, take comfort in the fact that perhaps your name came up in a heavenly convo. Your godliness will bail you out eventually.
Have a blessed day. #TGIF
