“Adonai your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your midst—from your brothers. To him you must listen. Deuteronomy 18:15
Yes Job, God did allow it but the devil did it and God will heal you because He is our Healing. Believe me, I have struggled even with the God allows it part, BUT GOD! He always knows the beginning from the end and His Word ALWAYS happens just as He says it does, allotting Him ALL of the glory which He so deserves to have! Even writing this seems silly - He is Almighty God!
When I think about Job I think that he had unresolved fear and the reason I think this is because of the sacrifices he made for his adult children in case they sinned. This is certainly not theological knowledge, just an opinion! I think this because He knew His God intimately but not in this one area. It is the devil who kills, steals, and destroys. It is God who gives life in FULL measure! Jobeeven said:
For the thing I dreaded has come upon me, and what I feared has happened to me. Job 3:25
It is said, “Crime doesn’t pay”. The biggest crime is not loving God and also the saddest for those who choose the world over Him. He is so wonderful and His want is always for our blessing and never for us to receive His just due wrath. How prideful to stand against the Creator as a sinner and treat Him as nothing and then expect good things to come. Lord, the harvest is so huge and I beseech You, Lord of the harvest, to send us forth. It is not nor ever has been Your will that any perish and never know You (2 Peter 3:9).
