When God speaks of a patience that will strengthen us to endure a crisis, He points us to Job. There are many important life lessons we can learn from Job. Satan took all that he had in a day but left Job’s wife, his bride, to be a snare to him because she was nearest to him and had influence. But Job had the same two character traits that must be possessed by the 144 000. He withstood the crisis. Job vindicated God’s character by showing that God was worthy of his love, and that he would rather die than dishonour Him. Does your relationship with God look like Job's?
