The Best Choice is to Trust God
Never before had Job’s friends been exposed to the suffering of the righteous. They had to contend with how to reconcile tragedy with their limited understanding of God. The missing pieces prevented them from conceiving that calamity could befall the godly.
“But he knows where I am going.Job 23:10 NLT
And when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold.”
HOW DOES THIS APPLY TO ME?
Thwarted by lack of experience, Job could not find God relevant to his crisis. Unable to sense, experience, or discern the presence of God in the midst of his calamity, Job was confident God had not lost him and certain that at the completion of God’s plan Job would be purified. The best choice is to trust Him.
God, once You have made Your decision, who can change Your mind? Whatever You want to do, You do. You will do to me whatever You have planned. You control my destiny. . . .Job 23:13–14
