    God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation.
    Afterward, they will receive the crown of life
    that God has promised to those who love him
    .”
    James 1:12


    I can resist anything –
    except temptation.

    as i thought on this, Job came to mind. He endured suffering the likes of he could never have fathomed. Part f that excruciating suffering was the seemingly "absence" of the God he poured out his life, his family, and al that he had before. The reason he did so, is because he had already "feared" God, and thus was already "humble" before the living God, and as it is written, in Proverbs 9:10, that the "fear of the Lord" is the beginning of wisdom.

    Job was a wise man. We must, like Job, be "equipped", and the "equipment"is the "fear of the Lord", which grows the fruit of "wisdom", which prepares us and sustains us for, and through any suffering.

    Job weathered a tsuami of suffering and loss. He did not "curse God and die" as his wife told him to do and as Satan wa counting on him doing. No, he held on to te God Who seemed "absent" at his most dire and darkest moments. And the REASON he "hung on" is because he had alrady been "equipped" with his "armor", and tat was the "fear of the Lord", and its companon, "wisdom".

    And God KNEW this. Satan didn't.

    God EQUIPS us for suffering. We need only put on His "armor", just s Job did.

    i love studying Job. Thank you or this edifying and thought-provoking study and meditation.
