The Man and the Book - Job

I have always loved this verse. It is good to meditate upon..saw it a while ago on a very dear sister's page. 
(Link is from ages ago).
This verse reflects the truth shared in the wonderful Job message heard last year at our church, called the “Persecution of a Job”.
Link also here if doesn't work

Job was a man who **eschewed evil.
**avoided evil,
**turned actively away from it.
Written before the Pentateuch (Genesis to Deuteronomy) Job lived in a time of NO printed Word of God, NO indwelling holy Spirit, and really very little light spiritually - when compared with that which we are blessed today.
Yet Job appropriated, or took by faith, the very same mercy and grace available to us, in midst of deep devastation and affliction, and such active condemnation by his "friends". They executed this condemnation by blow upon blow.
Job breathed, lived, followed these words, resting in ALL the depth of their meaning. 
"BUT He knoweth the way that I take,
when He hath tried me,
 I shall come forth as gold."
May I do likewise, every moment resting in Thee, O Lord.
For Thy yoke is easy, Thy burden is light, when all is done in Thy strength, by Thy grace, in Jesus' name, for Thy glory.
I am praying for you in all your trials and burdens, and
Praying, too, for our nations' leaders, for God's blessing and mercy upon us in spite of our wickedness. 
Praying, pleading for repentance, revival and rain across our lands.
Thanks to all who pop across to this blog and Thank you too if you can leave some love and encouragement.
