Monday’s Moment

My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined (Job 23:11).
Job did not understand why  such terrible trials had come into his life, but he did know that he was not going to leave God. Job did not understand the loss of property, but he knew that he would not leave God; Job did not understand the loss of status, but he knew that he would not leave God; Job did not understand the loss of his family, but he knew that he would not leave God.
We each face, have faced and or will face trials in our lives but we must never give-up on God. We each have trials in our lives, which we may not fully understand, but we must never give-up on God.  Job’s wife exhorted Job just to “curse God and die,” which must never be our attitudes.
Any hope of understanding and any hope of enduring trials in our lives is found only with God. With a better understanding and with a stronger faith we have a better understanding of the love of God. God cares for us in this life because God desires us to be with Him throughout eternity. God has not promised that His children will not face trials, but He has promised to be with us and to see us through every step of the way. God has promised His children that they will suffer persecution, because they are His children, but He will be with us and never leave us. God has never promised His children that they would never need help, but He has promised that we “can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.”
Let us read and understand the promises of God; let us read and understand the hope of God and let us read and understand the help of God.
