Job 1:8 – God is “proud” of His servant Job…

Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?”  Job 1:8

It is interesting to see here that God was “proud” of His servant Job. He described him as “..a blameless & upright man, one who fears God & shuns evil..” Aren’t these virtues bestowed upon Job by the grace of God? Yet, He attributes them to Job. This is the great mystery of God’s sovereignty versus man’s responsibility. Accept it, submit to it and praise God for it. It will keep us humbly dependent on Him.
