Topic: DESIRE GOD’S GLORY 2
Bible Reading: Job 1:8-12
📖8….”And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
📖9….Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?
📖10…. Hast not thou made an HEDGE about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.”
🔥Originally, God made man in his own image and likeness. Man was made in glory and honour like God. Hebrews 2:7 specifically affirms that, God crowned man with glory and honour. But when Satan became physical in the personality called the serpent, he manipulated man and deceived him to look down on himself in Genesis 3:1-6. Satan in the serpent, made man to believe that he wasn’t yet the image and likeness of God. Man foolishly believed the serpent, and the first couple became gods (Gen 3:5), throwing away God’s glory which made them God’s likeness.
🔥🔥But after God in his compassion, covered Adam and Eve with the skin of innocent animal in Gen 3:21, God was able to look upon man again because of the blood from the innocent animal that touched them from the animal skin, and they were again made acceptable by God. Hence in our main text quoted above from Job 1:8-12, Satan saw God’s protection upon Job; which he called an hedge. The hedge is God’s protective glory upon those that both fear God and eschew evil.
🔥🔥🔥Before Satan can tamper with believers, he must first make them to disbelieve that they have God’s glory covering them. Same way he takes away our faith by projecting fear into us, and takes away our salvation by making our already forgiven sins look like not yet forgiven. Children of God, do you belong to your biological families by feelings or acceptance? If by acceptance, as you accept God today, his hedge of protection has covered you.
🙏O Lord, don’t allow anything I have to be in the hands of Satan, as was Job’s case, so he doesn’t have any occasion to steal from me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Precious Father, create more confidence in me by your Spirit, so I don’t look down on the greatness you inculcated into me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Heavenly Father, sustain your hedge of protective glory upon my life forever, in Jesus’ name.
