Acceptance Is a Process
Job 7:1-10 Like a slave longing for the evening shadows, or a hired laborer waiting to be paid, so I have been allotted months of futility, and nights of misery have been assigned to me. When I lie down I think, ‘How long before I get up?’ The night drags on, and I toss and turn until dawn. My body is clothed with worms and scabs, my skin is broken and festering... Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath; my eyes will never see happiness again. The eye that now sees me will see me no longer; you will look for me, but I will be no more. As a cloud vanishes and is gone, so one who goes down to the grave does not return.
God had referred to Job as an upright man who fears God and shuns evil, and yet even Job had a hard time working through God’s will in his life. He went through months of not sleeping and suffering, not seeing the completion of God’s plan in his life. If you’re in a place like Job was don’t feel alone, don’t feel worse for not instantly jumping to the place which puts God’s will first. Continue praying, continue seeking, and continue through the process.
