MORNINGTIME 3432by Benjamin Munsell on March 27, 2020
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 (hateth) evil? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But PUT FORTH (take away) THINE HAND now, and touch (destroy) all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath IS IN THY POWER; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord. Job 1:8-12. So which is worse, do right and go through Tribulation, or do wrong, and go through Tribulation? Does that Tribulation come from God, or come from Satan? The question is wrong, it doesn't matter where the Tribulation comes from, the question is, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? Is Satan always to blame for your Tribulation? Next question, when you get hit in the face with Great Blessings, do you quickly blame Satan, or do you Thank God? God is good and Satan is bad, therefore all good comes from God, and all bad comes from Satan? Again, wrong thinking. "Behold, therefore I WILL stretch out MINE HAND upon thee, and will DELIVER THEE for a spoil TO THE HEATHEN; and I will cut thee off from the people, and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries: I WILL DESTROY THEE; AND THOU SHALT KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD". Ezekiel 25:7. For the moment, forget about Satan, the Lord uses him like a dog on a leash, FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE LORD. Everything that touches your life today, either comes from, or is allowed by, the Hand of The Lord, THAT YOU MAY COME TO AND CALL ON HIM FOR EVERYTHING. To Praise Him for His Blessings, and to COME TO HIM in His Cursings. EVERYTHING is Designed to Grow you in the Lord, that you may ultimately, Be Blessed.
