Job was experiencing the worst day of his life. Not only had he suddenly lost all of the livestock that had made him a wealthy man, he had just been informed that all of his children had suddenly died. One can only imagine the devastation that Job felt at this point in his life. How would he respond to such a sudden, unimaginable loss?
He would respond quite remarkably! Job 1:20-22 says, “At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.” In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.”
No one knows what life holds in store. However, we all must face times of trials. Some blame God for the horrible things that happen to them. Others, like Job, have already made the decision to worship God…no matter what.
May we all decide to do the same.
