Can you imagine how faithful Job was?
He didn’t know why he was tested, because
he was totally ignorant of Satan’s insistence.
This manslayer could harm him even at a distance.
This rebellious angel wanted to believe,
that if he took away everything, God--- Job would leave.
Then, as he remain faithful even though all was taken,
the devil stole his health, to see if God he’d forsaken.
As if that weren’t enough, ---what an insult,
his so called friends said he was at fault.
In all his distresses, Job did not give up.
His integrity was proven without any doubt.
After a time, for his “friends” he implored,
then God blessed him more than he had before.
Today, Satan’s tactics still haven’t changed,
therefore, in God’s love, we try to remain.
