Job 2:7-10 (NLT)
7 So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and afflicted Job with
painful sores from the soles of his feet to the top of his head. 8 Then Job
took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the
ashes. 9 His wife said to him, "Are you still holding on to your integrity?
Curse God and die!" 10 He replied, "You are talking like a foolish woman.
Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?" In all this, Job did not sin
in what he said.

Little is said of Job's wife, but here we find her telling Job to curse God and
die. We need to remember she has lost all of her possessions and all of her
children with Job and now her husband who had been in good health suddenly has
been afflicted with a horrible disease. The only person who could comfort her
is sitting in the ashes with no one to comfort him. Only the dust of the ashes
and the scraping of the pottery helps relieve any of the suffering he is
enduring. She is watching him suffer in excruciating pain while Job is still
being the backbone of the family by acknowledging that God has the right to
effect His plan in our lives.

I'll ask the question Job's wife asked, "Are you holding on to your integrity?"
When God implements His plan in your life and you are faced with a trial are
you able to make the same statement as Job? Can you say, "Shall we accept good
from God, and not trouble?" It's easy to take the good parts of life, but it's
difficult when God allows the rough parts of life to come along. Yet Job
endured and so can the rest of us because God is faithful and will be with us
until the end. Pray that God will maintain your integrity and never allow you
to weaken. Pray that you will be faithful to Him. Accept good or trouble
because there can be blessings in both as long as God is with you. God bless
you and may Christ comfort, love and bless you each and every day.
