The heart of Job

Job 13:15 “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him.”

Death – it’s the worst thing that can be thrown at us. Job knew the Lord in such an intimate and trusting way, that even death – even if it came from God himself, would not shake him. Trust is just another word for faith. Trusting the all-powerful, all-knowing God of heaven and earth is the antidote to worry, anxiety, depression, whatever you call it – whether the culprit is a lack of money, health problems, problems at work, relationship issues, or anything else that causes us to fear the future. We can’t see Him with our eyes, but we are never alone in any situation for he is always with us.

Father forgive me when I doubt you and thank you for so very patiently working in me to strengthen my weak faith. Please give me the heart of Job.

One response to “The heart of Job”

  1. I both love and hate the book of Job. He was a wise and full of perseverance. Christ-like. But I also hate the way people judged him; giving unwanted verbal treatment. – Not just those people but I seem myself in them as well. I hate that.
