Which One?

Job – You know the one who lost it all because of a deal Satan made with God…

Maybe

Just maybe

Satan should have made his deal with God with Job’s wife instead of Job.

Then he would have won.

“Do you still hold fast to your integrity?” She said. – Your children are gone, your wealth is gone and now your body is sick.  You are now a “has been”, a “used to be”, a worthless piece of human flesh and because of that I am now married to a worthless piece of trash.  You are an idiot for holding on to your integrity that blew away with these trials that God has allowed to come into your life… so “curse Him”… (you know I have already done that) and then “die” so I can get my life back.

Yep… it would have  been better for him to make the deal with Job’s wife.

But Job’s identity wasn’t in the stuff he had acquired in this life. His identity was found in God. His identity was found in who God said he was. To Job it didn’t matter if he was known for greatness or known for his losses.  What mattered was what God wanted his identity to be… what God wanted for him…

and he was just fine leaving that for His Creator to decide.

So…

Which spouse are you?

Are you the one that leaves who you are to God?

Or are you the one that goes to excessive links to be a certain kind of person?

This is important because one curses God when they don’t get their way…

and the other is OK with whatever God sends their way.

Which spouse are you?
