S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
His wife said to him, “Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!”
These words are now infamous for more years than I can hardly count. Job’s wife was the culprit because she had watched and been a part of one of the most intense losses of everything one family had ever faced before or since. She knew the family well because she was Job’s wife. They’d lost all of the children. They’d lost all of their money. They’d lost their business and business animals and just everything. While all this was happening, Job did not sin in what he said. But his wife was done. She couldn’t take anymore, and she was so broken she became hostile to God. When she saw that her husband had not broken under the weight of it all, she challenged him with all he had left. She challenged his INTEGRITY. She said, “Why don’t you just curse God and die and give up your INTEGRITY?” But Job responded, “you’re speaking like a crazy person.” He still did not break! In time, God doubled back to Job everything he had lost to begin with. Here’s the challenge. “Keep Your INTEGRITY, No Matter What!”
What about you today? What battles are you facing? We are now living in a “Cancel Culture” society where the slightest mistake on your part or mine will cause people, including so-called friends, to erase us from their “Circle of Friends!” Like never before it’s time for men and women of God to stand for what they believe. But when that happens and friends cut you off for believing what they don’t, it may unsettle you for a moment but don’t let it shake you. Take your stand anyway and by all means, “Keep Your “INTEGRITY” No Matter What!”
Thank You for protecting me from the continual onslaught of the devil. Thank You for helping me through each trial. Thank You for helping me keep my INTEGRITY – NO MATTER WHAT! Amen
