Job 23:10 NASB "But He knows the way I take;
When He has put me to the test, I will come out as gold."I didn't know it at the time but found out later that I passed the test! Today's verse is about a man who had faced more difficulty that we could ever imagine. He lost his property, income, investments and family but remained faithful to God and passed the test! As a young man, I was asked by a man to help him do some work around his home. I had agreed and at the end of the week, he said that I passed the test and asked me to work for his company! I never knew that I was being tested. The test was that he left me alone in his house when he went to get more supplies, but he left a large amount of cash sitting on his table. The test was to see if the temptation to steal was stronger than the drive not to! In life, we will face tests of many different kinds, sizes and shapes, may we find ourselves passing the test to bring God glory and come out as gold! Be sure to read the Book of Job and find out how God blessed him for passing his test! peace, tom
