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?"

"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!

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,

See you tomorrow, God willing!
