Does God see you as He saw Job? (Job 1:8)

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:  Does God see you as He saw Job?

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?” (Job 1:8).

We should be like Job in the following six areas:

1. My servant:  Our only desire should be to please and serve our Master, and anything else pales in comparison.

2. None like him:  we must be our unique selves, having strong convictions, not "going with the flow" of the crowd, but unabashedly determined to honor and obey God.

3. Blameless:  though we know there is plenty of blame, God considers us perfect, blameless, because we are clothed in the righteousness of His Righteous Son.

4. Upright:  honest, showing integrity

5. Fear's God:  knowing that God sees our every action and knows our very thoughts.  

6. Shuns evil:  we must flee from sin.

If we would practice these things in this New Year, what a time of growth and spurring on the maturity this would be.  In fact, make these you resolutions for life!
