Do You Really Trust God?
Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
Job had a life that people would envy. The Lord blessed him with a beautiful family, a faithful wife, and an abundance of wealth. However, one day Job's life drastically changed when he lost everything. Job lost all his children and possession, his wife wanted him to curse God, and he was covered with boils. Job was faithful to God, daily walking with Him, and even offered sacrifices on behalf of his children. What did Job do to deserve this? We know from chapter one of Job that the devil wanted to prove God wrong, but even though Job was going through this trial, he trusted that God would take care of Him. We all will go through trials in our life that will test our faithfulness to God. Trust God through your trials because He can help you through them. Verse 10 of this chapter states, "...when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold." God has us go through trials so that when we overcome them, by His strength, our faith will be stronger. Trust God no matter what you may go through in life.
