Ever felt like God is after you? Maybe he’s looking to catch you doing something wrong. You’ve felt like every moment of every day, he’s after you.
In a more extreme way, Job expressed his experience with God:
“What is man that you make so much of him, and that you set your heart on him, visit him every morning and test him every moment? How long will you not look away from me, nor leave me alone till I swallow my spit?” (Job 7:17-19)
The reality is that God has made you his child, and his children are valuable to him. Job felt that God was testing him and looking for fault. Yes, he allowed Satan to do that. God wanted to prove that his children love him genuinely because he is worthy to be loved.
If God is testing you severely, he has a plan. Understand that he values you so much that he allows this. Troubles prove that you are his child. He knows that your love for him will stand even the most severe trials.
