Word of the Day... June 22, 2015...

He Is- In Charge
One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them.  The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?”
Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.”
Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.”
“Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.”
The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.”
Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.  Job 1:6–12 

When the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, Satan appeared with them. His purpose was to question Job’s loyalty to God and ask if he could test Job’s faith. However, God proved he is truly in charge by limiting the trials Job would endure. 

You may be in the middle of a test of faith and find yourself wondering, “Where’s God in this? Who’s in control?” Rest assured that he is in charge of the situation. Though it may seem that evil is dictating your current circumstances, every trial comes with God’s permission for the purpose of building your faith.  I hope that you enjoyed this devotional as much as I did.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!  God bless you!!!
