The story of Job is a classic case of unwavering faith in God in the face of adversity. It shows that God is faithful and rewards your patience, obedience and trust in Him.
Whatever you boast with is likely to be tested. 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? (Job 1:8 KJV)
So when you are proud of anything or anyone you should intercede for that person or thing. It is common for people who are being openly appreciated or favoured to start committing blunders or start walking in pride. The devil is always bent on destroying their testimonies.
