In this verse, Job utters some of the most discouraging words in the Bible. What caused one of God’s favorites to be so hopeless?
Job experienced a season of continuous tragedies. In a short span of time, he lost most of his family, the majority of his finances, and apparently, some of his faith.
Perhaps you feel like Job. Maybe life has been rough for the past several days, weeks, months or years. In spite of what you’re facing, let me assure you: YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO LIVE FOR! Some of the most beautiful weather happens immediately following the most torrential storms. In other words, trouble doesn’t last always. Better is coming! You owe it to yourself; press on to see the blessings the clouds of doubt, discouragement, and despair have hid from you.
By the way, Job prospered in the end; God gave Him double for his trouble. What will your legacy be? You’ll never know if you quit now.
Thought to Consider:
… So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation (1 Peter 5:10, NLT)
