Psalm 139:14 (KJV) reads, "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."

Job was known as a righteous man in his days. It was God who called the attention of Satan to this upright man, saying, “Have you considered my servant Job?” Satan’s response was revealing, “Does Job fear God for nothing? Haven't you made a hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth your hand now, and touch all that he has, and he will curse you to your face.” God granted Satan’s request, and he wreaked terrible damages on Job, some of which were irreparable.

After a while, God again drew Satan’s attention to Job’s uprightness. Of note was Satan’s response, “Skin for skin, yes, all that a man has will he give for his life. But put forth your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse you to your face.” God again granted his request but with restraint, “save his life.” Job’s life was his most precious commodity, and God would not allow Satan access to it. Job passed the test; he refused to deny God, and all that he lost were eventually restored.

If everything around a person were to be placed on a scale of preference, their life would be the topmost. God values our lives so much that He will not allow Satan to touch it, even when He allows him to tempt and try us. If God had allowed Satan, he would have killed you. You are alive because God restrained him.

Go into today thanking the Lord for being alive despite all that you may have lost. Because you are alive, you can be restored.
