Take a clue from Job
Job performed his priestly duties by praying for his friends and children. Job was an intercessor in his days with the heart of pouring his life as a libation to the welfare of others.
One of the unscathed and well – meaning chapter is Job 29. He had an unusual compassion for the less privileged and poor that he centered his life in being an oasis for such fellas. No wonder Job was a testament to even God before the devil and also invoked the protection of God even without asking. He knew the ways of God and even combatting sickness, he said, “Far it be from God to do wickedness”- (Job 34:10).
Job was accustomed to fighting for the poor and “rescuing” them from the wicked. He said in Job 29:111117, that, “And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth”. Hitherto, he had asserted he was a father to the poor and a sight to the blind. Job was desperate to help the weak whom the wicked wanted to prey over and victimize.
Job, as the wealthiest man in the East in his days, directed his affluence to fight the wicked and to set the captives free. He was boldly to say. “Then I said, I will die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand. My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night my branch. My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand….” – (Job 29:18-20).
Job waxed strong in life because he was an intercessor and protector of the weak in life.
