It is interesting to note that God gave Satan permission to afflict Job knowing that Jesus would also be afflicted. Jesus left the perfect example in that He did not open His mouth. The Lamb before His shearers was silent. Although Job’s wife tempted him to curse die, he considered her a foolish woman and willingly accepted affliction. Though we face very difficult and unpleasant situations, we must be confident that God’s plan of deliverance and salvation will prevail.
