Righteous Living

Re:Verse passage – Job 1:1-12 (day two) The Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.”

Let’s be clear; your faith walk is always preparing you for something. Perhaps you can relate when people talk about feeling very near to the Lord during trials or times of suffering. The other side of that coin can sometimes be convicting. When things are going well we tend to think of God less. This is to our spiritual detriment. Job was chosen because he was righteous even in his abundance. It was his pattern and privilege to submit to the Lord. Daniel did not become righteous when he was challenged, he simply adhered to the pattern of his life (Daniel 6:10). Jesus did not need 5000 to display his righteousness, his life was marked with a devotion to God the Father as a part of his very being (Luke 4:16)

What we are about to study throughout the book of Job is a testament to righteous living regardless of circumstance. Why don’t we begin right where we are, today?
