“Although He slay me, but will I belief in him: however I’ll preserve my very own methods earlier than Him.” Job 13:15
I bear in mind sitting in a seminary class with 6 or 7 different college students and my prof, discussing the guide of Job. I requested the query,
“Can we actually belief a God like this, somebody who permits an individual like Job to endure extremely?”
Human nature would say to neglect a couple of God who would conform to inflicting ache after which abandon a person like Job when he wanted God probably the most. Questioning God within the midst of struggling is pure, and Job did wrestle with the query, “Why me, God?”
Job knew truths about God that allowed him to belief God and “maintain his ways” earlier than him, simply as he all the time had completed. Struggling didn’t change how he lived or what he believed, however it did trigger him to know God extra deeply than he ever had earlier than.
The guide of Job is my favourite, not as a result of it’s about struggling, however as a result of it’s about understanding God in a deeper approach to the purpose that I can belief Him and say with Job,
“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: and though worms destroy my body, yet in my flesh shall I see God…” (Job 19:25-26).
Have you learnt that your Redeemer lives and that he’ll come once more to obtain you into everlasting glory, regardless that your earthly physique might be destroyed? Belief means trying past the current struggling on this earthly life to see what lies forward.
Father God, assist me to know what a beautiful God you might be and to belief you it doesn’t matter what occurs in my life. Amen.
