Lessons From Job
"Even if He murders me, I know that I can trust Him!" Now that’s faith. Incredibly when Job said this, he was thoroughly dissatisfied with the ways of God. Well he might be. Losing his children, his wealth, his health, and his reputation, and being left with a wife who told him believing God was not worth the effort, he complained to God.
Though He slay me, I will hope in Him. Nevertheless I will argue my ways before Him. This also will be my salvation, For a godless man may not come before His presence (Job 13:15-16).
Oddly, Job did not question God but he questioned the ways of God. He also recognized the great value that came with salvation—access to the presence of God. With salvation comes the wonderful presence of God, and this God even listens to us when we complain about his ways.
The great gift of salvation is a vibrant, transparent friendship with the living God. He may not always give us what we want, and He may take away what we have, but in both experiences He can be great company.
