Job 27:6 “My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live”

One means by which the enemy tries to get a captive or a prisoner of war to reveal a secret or recount his stand is by subjecting him to intense suffering and torture. It is believed that everyone has a breaking point (the extent or limit to which he can bear or withstand pain before eventually caving in). This method has on several occasions been adopted by persecutors to get Christians to deny their faith. The form or nature of the torture could either be physical or psychological. Often, only very few are able to withstand such an ordeal without breaking down.

This is the same method employed by Satan in the case of Job. But neither the physical affliction from Satan nor the emotional and psychological torture from his friends and closet companion (his wife) would break him. In the text, we read of his very strong resolve to hold on to his integrity and righteousness in spite of his sufferings. What a challenge to everyone of us! Unfortunately, some Christians do not have this strong resolve and determination of Job.

Many easily give up when they face a little illness, financial difficulty or delay in getting a life partner, children, employment or promotion in the place of work. How is it with you? We must understand that, while in this world, the devil will not give up his attempt to get us to recant our faith and deny the Lord. There may be physical sufferings in the form of pains, sicknesses and at times, physical attacks and tortures or psychological and emotional traumas in the forms of wants, lacks, denials of rights and privileges, rejections, etc. Whatever it may be, we must resolve like Job that we will not be broken. And like the Lord eventually turned the captivity of Job to the shame of the devil, He will turn our own captivity as we remain unbroken by suffering.
