Is this my season? In history, I look at events but more importantly the people who made a difference in the world.
In world/life changing it is amazing to know that Jesus is definitely on the list. We can go very simply… Man is faced with challenges daily! Job was a Man and suffered greatly! Losing his belongings, children, health… is there anything more to lose? Yet, his focus was on his reason; that never totally faltered. Since his mind could not understand God’s ways from beginning to end, Job’s faith faltered. But now Job knew God. And although he still could not comprehend God’s ways with him, he could trust Him and His infinite wisdom in spite of his own finite understanding and knowledge.
He lost his health, wealth, and children. His friends accused him and called into question his faith in God. … After the loss of everything he held worthwhile, he still proclaimed: “Though He [God] slay me, yet will I trust Him” (Job 13:15). He was declaring his complete trust in his God.
Can we say this if/when tines are rough/challenging?
