Quotes from the 1987 NIV.
In Job 2:3, the record shows that God says Satan “incited” Him to “ruin” Job. Job 1:9 shows that Satan says God put a “hedge” around Job, “his household and everything he has”.
Hosea says, in 6:1-2 that the Lord “tears…but He will heal…that we may live in His presence”. We see this play out in Job’s life. God allows/permits Satan to remove all of Job’s children, flocks, even Job’s health, Job 1 & 2, but after a time God blesses the “second half of “Job’s life more than the first” granting more children and wealth to Job, 42:12.
This gives me hope in two things: the hedge God has around me and knowing He will heal.
