The Beating of A “Spiritual Drum”
Job 17:6 (KJB) He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetime I was as a tabret.
God allowed Job to be used an example of both great spiritual poverty and patience.
Job’s life was once beating as a tabret, or a “spiritual showcase” of sorts displaying a prosperous life of plenty many admired. Job’s life then began to beat on another “spiritual drum” of sorts calling attention to the great power and presence of God at work in desperate situations of life.
God can steer fame and fortune into our lives and in the next moment we can be showered with great scandal, slander, and solitude.
Job’s life was a token of the great abundance God can usher into the life of mankind.
However, God can give and He can take away. He can usher in a supernatural peace that passes all natural understanding in the middle of a great storm.
Job’s life was also an illustration of great loss and suffering.
There is never a situation that is too much, nor too big for God to handle. He has unlimited presence and power always at work in this world despite the condition of our immediate circumstances.
