The Vision that Makes Whole (2/3).

We see a similar disposition in Job. What a man of faith he was? We will probably never fully understand what his wife meant by him cursing God and dying. All glory to God, Job was wiser and much stronger than that. He was dejected, just like Elijah and Cain. Sin had several suggestions for him, just as well. Job, like Elijah, and unlike Cain, understood his source, and held so tightly in faith, irrespective of the beatings of life.

Job saw beyond his immediate pains and saw the glory at the end of the ages. [Job 19:25-27; Psalms 130] Like, Jesus Christ, [Hebrews 12:2] his vision of the end gave him strength in bearing with the immediate, temporal pain. [2 Corinthians 4:17] He knew and did not forget the source of all that is good in him. [James 1:17] He appreciated the fact he might not always understand his ways. He preset his boundary conditions to ALWAYS trust in God. [Job 13:15]

What about you? Do you have boundary conditions for your life? Are there circumstances under which you'll give up on faith? Do you have a desire which is a deal-breaker in your walk with God? Or, are you fully sold out, under and over every kind of condition or wind? I don't know your answer, but this I know beyond the shadow of a doubt, it will be tested. Only those with a clear vision - boundaries, will come out unsoiled.
