Job made a covenant with his eyes. A covenant with his eyes! You mean he made a promise with his eyes to not gaze upon a young woman? It’s not possible! It can’t be true! Yet Job was successful; otherwise, he wouldn’t have made this promise:

 

If my heart has been enticed by a woman,

or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door,

then may my wife grind another man’s grain,

and may other men sleep with her. (31:9-10)

 

Job had been totally successful, or he could not have made this statement from his heart. He knew he had lived right, and he knew his eyes and mind were pure. He swore to it upon his wife and marriage before God and man.

 

Job was just a man! As you realize that, these precious words should gloriously flood your soul: If he can do it, so can I. God wants you to know that in your manhood as He created it, you, too, can rise above sexual impurity.
