Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.”
“Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.
Job 1:8-10 (NIV)
In today’s world of terrorism, robbery, and assassinations, wealthy men and women spend hundreds of millions of dollars on security agencies for their personal security. They spend even much more on insurances for their wealth and properties and children. The godly man Job did not need all that, God Himself was his personal bodyguard, both for him and all he had. Now, that is blessing! The hedge of divine protection not only protects from human and natural disasters but also from the arch enemy of prosperous believers – the devil. Now, may the LORD Himself build a mighty hedge around you and all you have, bless the work of your hand and mightily increase your substance! Amen.
