Devotion 12-2-23 Job 13:15 , "Though "He slay me, I will hope in Him. Nevertheless I will argue my ways before Him." All in one day, Job suffered major financial loss, loss of 10 children, loss of status in the community, and to top it all off, his health was gone. From Job's perspective, his life was gone. It was in that context that he said, "Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him." We have the back story about the conversation between Satan and God. Job did not have that advantage. He had always chosen to trust and honor God. He still chose to trust and honor God. In spite of everything, even judgmental "friends," Job sought God. He did not understand; but he sought God. He teetered dangerously close to accusing God; but when corrected, he quickly repented of judging God and prayed for his "friend" accusers, at God's instruction. One of the important lessons to learn from Job is what we are to do in similar hard situations. We may choose to accuse God, to demand answers from God, and wallow in self-pity. Or, we may seek God, seek His wisdom and understanding, and seek to be one who brings glory to His name, no matter what. We may not understand; but, how we deal with difficult situations is a witness to the world. It is a witness of your relationship with God Almighty. Are you prepared to die for God? Are you prepared to give up all comfort for Him? You say yes; but the actual test will prove you right or wrong. Psalm 139:23-24- "Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way." Proverbs 3:5-8- "Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body And refreshment to your bones."
