"The devil is trying to kill me." BBBH looks the picture of health, given her age and all, but she is not exempt from physical woes. She bears them stoically for the most part, but she made this statement yesterday.
My response was, "The devil cannot do that. He may indeed create many woes for mankind, and for us individually, but he can't kill us."
"Why would you think that?"
"The Book of Job. The Lord allowed Satan to mess with Job but forbade him to take his life."
"That was Job,:" she said.
"That was a righteous person who was known of God who knew that Job was faithful. He extends the same grace and protection to you. Job's story is not just a story. There is a message in it."
"Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him. He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him." --Job 13:15,16 KJV
