“Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?"
And “In all this Job did not sin with his lips” (same verse). What a man this Job was! There he sat with painful boils over his entire body, and yet he receives this horrible curse as if it were the same as a blessing. He trusts his Lord!
Father, make me as steadfast in my trust in you as your servant Job. Let me never forget that both good and evil come our way, but we are to rejoice in you through every circumstance. How hard this is, yet how core to our faith. I believe! Lord, help my unbelief (Mark 9:24).
