Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Job 13:15(a) (NLT)
Imagine, if you will, your health, family, and possessions all being attacked or even taken in one day! For many, it is difficult to imagine and especially difficult to think of how we would even react! Maybe, our first reaction would be tears of sadness or even a little anger as we wonder where is God in all of this! Sometimes, our reaction will reveal everything except our trust in God! However, as Christians, we have to understand that although we may not have a Job like experience, life will present situations and circumstances which will test our faith and trust in God! When it does, we must have a firm conviction deep within our hearts that God always has our best interest in mind! More importantly, we must know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, He causes all things to work together for our good! So, when our lives hang in the balance or is under attack, we must be like Job! As such, Job recognized that God was and is the only source of hope! Therefore, we must trust Him even in the most unimaginable situations! When we do, we will come out as pure as gold!
