HAS SATAN CONSIDERED YOU?
Today is Thursday. A very busy day for me since I was gone to a preaching conference Mon-Wed. Today was catch up day. I ate lunch at 3:00pm and never had time for breakfast. But, I was fine. I enjoyed being busy quite frankly. I made some visits after that and then ran some errands and came home about 6:15pm. So, my thought for the day is later than normal. Oh, did I say that my day began at 3:45am as I took my wife to the airport. She went to speak near Detroit, MI. I couldn't get back to sleep when I got home at 5:30am, so I began my day. I have a truth to share, and here it is:
HAS SATAN CONSIDERED YOU? In Job 1:8, God asks 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?" The passage goes on to say that Satan had considered Job. I wonder if Satan has ever considered us? I'm guessing that most of us are not doing enough for the LORD for Satan to take note of us, but it may be that He has considered us and is wanting to find ways to trip us up. Let us pray for God to keep His hedge about us as well. Satan thought that Job served God because God had put a hedge about him and blessed the work of his hands. God had indeed put a hedge of protection around Job, and no doubt, Satan had tried to get through it to harm him and failed. But, the book of Job is about God letting down this hedge of protection and letting Satan do his worst. Still Job keeps his faith and chooses to keep loving God and serving Him. It is an amazing story, and shows us how we too should stand tall for our LORD. Just a thought!
Have a blessed day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
