A Warm Sol Wise Welcome to You!

JOB 6 - Job, The Pilgrim

Job 1
8 Then the Lord said to Satan,
"Have you considered My servant Job,
that there is none like him on the earth,
a blameless and upright man,
one who fears God and shuns evil?"
NKJV

"The Pilgrim's Song" by John Bunyan
sums up this episode in the life of this great man of faith: Job.

Who would true valour see
Let him come hither;
One here will constant be
Come wind, come weather.
There's no discouragement
Shall make him once relent
His first, avowed intent:
To be a pilgrim!

Who so beset him round
With dismal stories,
Do but themselves confound
His strength the more is;
No lion can him fright,
He'll with a giant fight,
But he will have the right
To be a pilgrim!

No goblin, nor foul fiend
Can daunt his spirit;
He knows, he at the end
Shall life inherit.
Then fancies fly away
He'll not fear what men say
He'll labour night and day
To be a Pilgrim!

Prayer:
Father, thank You for the example of Your servant, Job.
Because he made it through this terrible situation, with his faith in tact,
I know that with Your help, I can face whatever the Devil, or life, or people throw at me,
and continue to put my whole faith in You.
Thank You for showing me that I can serve You to the end
and be a Pilgrim, like Job,
In Jesus' mighty name,
Amen.



See you tomorrow, God willing!
