Scripture Challenge for 9-16-18
This comes from 1 Corinthians
__:__Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
The other day I was working on part of a new web application that I am developing at work. I made a simple error, but it sure caused the application I was developing to do something very strange. I went back and discovered the error and fixed it right then; I did not wait until I forgot about it. If I had waited and never fixed it, when the application is deployed for use it would have had that same flaw in it. It reminded me that we can be sure that God makes NO mistakes. Whatever He records is exactly right and whatever He does is exactly right. When we stand before the Lord as Christians and look at His list of activities, actions, behavior, and how we obeyed; we are going to know He is right, and there will be no time for corrections at that point. The time for correction is now; if we are in error in our lives let us make our corrections today!

Answer: Job 1:8
__:__And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
Our hearts and minds are an open book before God, and you cannot hide anything from God. From this scripture above we see also that Satan can't hide anything from God either, and even the dark mind of Satan is an open book before God. The scripture is not so much because God did not know what Satan was thinking, but rather to draw out a confession from Satan as to what was on his mind concerning Job. God knew before Satan even spoke that he [Satan] had set his heart against Job. In the passages afterward we see Satan admitting that he had considered Job, but he also had to admit that he had been unsuccessful in doing anything against Job, (see the 2 verses right after the verse above when you find it). God knows the heart and mind of everyone and all things; as Christians let us allow our hearts and minds to be used of God.
