The Bible tells us about Job and the horror of his pain. He lost everything he had – even his children – and was attacked with physical pain.
Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him.
This was Job’s response to God.
That’s not to say he didn’t question his demise, but after processing all that happened to him, he made a choice to trust God. This is an acknowledgement of accepting that God is over all. It begins and ends with Him.
It’s a choice every Christian comes face to face with. It is a choice that reveals one’s devotion to God. Because if the going gets tough, it’s easy to bail out.
God wants us to have joy and peace. No matter what the circumstances, we will have both when we choose to trust God with everything.
If we choose not to trust God…we won’t.
