He lost everything!

Job 1:8 - "Then the Lord said to Satan, 'Have you considered my servant Job? He is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.'"

Satan was coming with the angels to the Lord and I bet you that God knew what Satan was thinking. "Job was 'blameless'. He was probably a good victim." The Lord knew what he was thinking and asked him about it.

Job 1:12 - "The Lord said to Satan, 'Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.'"

I bet you wondered why I used these verses in my blog. When Satan wants to get us away from God, he always has to go through God himself. God is the most powerful. I can just imagine Satan going on his knees asking God, because our Father is way above Satan. He has to ask him, because he is more powerful. It is in God's will that something happens. So, if our Father says yes to Satan trying to move you farther from Him, it is that we should trust him in that bad situation. Job lost everything, his children, his animals (which in that time were very expensive), and lots more. His wife kept telling Job to curse God, but Job refused. Since he did that, Job got more than he had before. So, what I'm getting is, is that if you're in a tough time, stick in there and don't blame God because he is just trying to get your attention to him and to keep a relationship going on between both of you.
