I like to think that the conversation that transpired between God and Satan in Job could be akin to someone’s life in today’s world. The same conversation took place twice (Job 1:7-8, 2: 1-3)
And check out what ensues; Job looses all possession and was afflicted without any apparent reason to him. Of course, we know how Job reacted to the first and second tests and how he progressively wallowed in self-pity, justified himself and deduced that God was out to get him!
Let us pause there for a moment, had Job realised that his trial was as a result of him being shown-off by God, would his dispostion be different?
Perhaps, you are going through a health/marital/career/business challenge and you are already responding like Job. Could you take a moment and think, “what if God is showing me off?”
It might also be a good idea to do a “self check”-‘am I standing right before God’? The answer should give an idea if truly you have the potential of being shown-off or so I think.
