Job

June 28, 2012

“The God-fearing Job” by Gyula Kardos, Source/Photographer http://biblia.hu/a_biblia_a_magyar_kepzomuveszetben/ (PD-ArtlPD-old-100)

Job, in his grief, sought to plead his case to God; sought to demonstrate that he was a man of integrity, undeserving of the trials inflicted on him.  Even in his misery, Job was certain God knew his character and would render justice.

God knows us.  More than that He loves us, and walks with us through our trials. We are never alone, no matter how abandoned we may feel.

There is anguish on this earth. To state otherwise would either be a lie or a delusion. Children die of cancer. Good men are attacked by mobs. But we know God’s character. Even when there is no sign of hope, God’s character remains constant. He is love Incarnate. He died that we might live.

Does He not see my ways, and count all my steps?” (Job 31: 4).

Lord God, You fashioned us in the womb. You know our comings and goings, every step before we take it.  You know our every heartbeat and heartache.

In times of darkness and times of joy, we turn to You.  You are ever with us, though we see You not. Help us to follow wherever You may lead.

Amen
