Trust Him | Job | Old Testament


#ComeFollowMe nugget

Job 1–3; 12–14; 19; 21–24; 38–40; 42
“𝚈𝚎𝚝 𝚆𝚒𝚕𝚕 𝙸 𝚃𝚛𝚞𝚜𝚝 𝚒𝚗 𝙷𝚒𝚖”

It’s natural to wonder why bad things happen to good people—or for that matter, why good things happen to bad people.

Why would God, who is just, allow that?

Questions like these are explored through the experience of Job, one of those good people to whom bad things happened.

Because of Job’s trials, his friends wondered if he was really good after all.

Job asserted his own righteousness and wondered if God is really just after all. But despite his suffering and wondering, Job maintained his integrity and faith in Jesus Christ.

In the book of Job, faith is questioned and tested but never completely abandoned. That doesn’t mean that all of the questions are answered.

But the book of Job teaches that until they are answered, questions and faith can coexist, and regardless of what happens in the meantime, we can say of our Lord, “Yet will I trust in Him” (Job 13:15).
