Faith Despite Circumstance

Re:Verse passage – Job 1:13-22 (day two) The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. vs. 21b

May none of us ever have to experience the devastating losses that Job had to endure with not a minute to catch his breath. It simply overwhelming to consider all that was taken from him on that day. Have you ever had the privilege to walk beside a believer journeying through grief? It is a responsibility that we will all experience at one time or another. What is remarkable is how their faith is made evident despite the tragedy. Often they comfort those who have come to give comfort. Where does this security come from? Only the Lord, to be sure. We will never be able to disaster-proof our faith, but we can get it to the point that we are not shaken when disasters come. That starts today. Begin building those muscles of hope through prayer, study, and listening.
