And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in
the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?  Job 1:8

And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in
the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he
holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause. Job
2:3


Is God Bragging on You?

It seems as though your skies are gray and you’re feeling blue
But perhaps the reason it’s raining, is ‘cause God is bragging on you

Pain’s your constant companion, though you’ve prayed for healing to renew
Is it possible sickness wracks your body, because God is bragging on you?

Your finances are in shambles, each statement saying “overdue�
You’re perplexed because you tithe faithfully, could it be God is bragging on you

Your relationships are lacking, friends and family proving untrue
With your best friend as Jesus should this be happening? Maybe God is bragging on you

You don't understand why you’re suffering, you haven't got a clue
You might be confused for you can’t see all things including how God is bragging
on you

When the enemy starts to devour you and you’re sure that you’re in his stew
Could it be you’re feeling the heat, because God is bragging on you

You’ve been faithful in your service, in your worship you have been true
If all things work together for good, then how could this be happening to you?

Imagine Job’s surprise and relief, if in his suffering he only knew
That God was bragging on him to Satan, and THAT was why he was going through.

So the next time you’re discouraged and wondering, why such evil is befalling you
Consider it an honor, that God may be bragging on you.
