​Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. Job 2:9
Many times in life, we face situations that call us to questions. We ask so many questions and seem not to get frequent answers. And these usually looks frustrating and annoying, to the point that we question why we even live and somehow look at the option of losing our integrity, then curse God and die. That’s the temptation of the devil.
Job was going through a torrid/difficult time. He has lost almost everything he had, and there looked like there was no hope for him. The only person left in his life was his wife who also had lost all her children, her joy was lost in the process, her hope seem dashed for life and she couldn’t think of any other solution but for Job to speak against God, first by losing his integrity, then curse God which will definitely result to death.
Friends, NEVER LOSE YOUR INTEGRITY even when you suffer the most and seem that all hope is lost. The devil’s tactics is such that we compromise our stands as a Christian, and by that he can win the war against our lives. Never take the option of settling your life the way the people of the world do. Let Grace keep you. Grace is a divine empowerment to live righteously even in an environment where sin and iniquity abound.
Then, NEVER CURSE GOD. It is true that “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life.” That’s what you should choose. Never curse God. Many people have gone through times that seem so hard that they began to curse God or indirectly blame their situation of God. My friend, rather than curse God and die, do like David who said, “because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.” Psalm 63:3.
In all situation, let your mouth, your lips, your heart, your life, your soul, your spirit praise the Lord. In His praise is your victory. In His praise is your solution. Like Job, say to yourself as often as possible that “I know that my redeemed lives.” Job 19:25. Don’t lose your integrity. And don’t curse God and die. Life for hope. Life by Faith. And live in love.
God bless you. Live Responsibly.
