It isn't who I need to be, but who I have to be, in order
for me to meet the standard requirements, God has set for me to accomplish, that will please him.
Because Job, whose affliction I wrote about a few days ago,
met the standard requirements God had set for his life, God was pleased with
his character, and restored all of his losses and health with great blessings.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart
from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
King James Version Bible (Proverbs 3:7)
Character Matters with God
The positive features we see in individuals that makes them
very special people are honesty, trustworthy, kindness, unselfishness, helping
others, faithful in a relationship, respectful; are the ideal qualities we each like to see in
the other person’s character, but, what

if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.”
God himself said Job’s character was one that he judged to
be perfect. Job didn't think he was perfect, but he knew he always did the
right thing by helping others and showing kindness, honesty, and respect.
Therefore, he was able to say, “I know that I shall be justified.” He knew God
wouldn't find him guilty of being unrighteous. He let those who he called ‘hypocrites’
know, “He also shall be my salvation: for a hypocrite shall not come before
him.” It was because of Job’s
character, that God saved his life, and condemned those who falsely judged
Job never gave up on God, despite his wife and others who
suggested that he should. There are those who will say negative statements
about praying and believing in Supernatural intervention. Those who believe in
the power of God, as Job did, can also allow their character to defend them
against whatever situation they encounter. Therefore, they succeed beyond
