A lament of Job


It stood still, But I could not discern the form thereof: An image was before mine eyes, There was silence, and I heard a voice, saying, Shall mortal man be more just than God? Shall a man be more pure than his maker? Behold, he put no trust in his servants; And his angels he charged with folly: How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, Whose foundation is in the dust, Which are crushed before the moth? They are destroyed from morning to evening: They perish for ever without any regarding it. Job 4:16‭-‬20 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/job.4.16-20.KJV

Job had lost everything, even his health, but he would not blame God for it. He praised God in that he didn’t blame Him for all that had happened, but he also asked many times why this was happening. His integrity and his faith in God never waivered.

This is the kind of faith all of us should aspire to. I don’t want to go through what he did in order to have this strong faith but studying God’s Word should produce in each of us a steadfast and unshakable faith that will carry us through all of our trials.
