curse God and die

Another “follow up” appointment today!

The cardiologist’s office is monitoring the blood clots. Although the swelling in my leg continues and there is periodic discoloration and tenderness, the doctor indicated normal progress. The information he provided was reassuring. It is important to rest the leg, keeping it elevated, but the right amount of moving around helps the healing process. No additional scans are customary unless a problem arises.

Every week since leaving the hospital, blood has been drawn to adjust the blood thinner’s dose. Halleluia! I finally get to skip a week of going to the lab having maintained a consistent blood level for a couple weeks.

Job’s wife told him to curse God and die. Would you? It’s in the Bible. Why not? She first asked him if he still retained his integrity. What did she mean?

If you read the previous verses, Job 2:3-5, you’d see that for the second time God commended Job as a blameless and upright man who feared Him, AND even though the devil had tested him, one who maintained his integrity. At this, Satan sets out to attack Job again.

Job did not know the source of his trials, yet he did not accuse God. Unlike Job, we can read the cause of his problems. Do we retain our integrity or do we sin with our mouth?

In Psalm 84, we read in the second part of the 11th verse, “No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” We also see from Job 1:10 that God has put a hedge of protection around us.

Who, then, is the One that blesses, protects, and provides and who is the one that steals, kills, and destroys (John 10:10)? If we say that the Lord gives, and the Lord takes away, are we actually attributing God with the works of the devil?

Don’t let the enemy of your souls deceive you so that you are not able “to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).
