We Just Have To Trust God

 In the bible, Job was not perfect. After he suffered devastating losses, he shook an angry fist at God and demanded that God explain why. It's no wonder he was angry. His children (all 10 of them!) died when their house collapsed, and all the rest of his possessions were burned by fires or stolen by thieves. Still, Job was an upright man who feared God and shunned evil. What do good men and women do when faced with great loss? They likely experience a wide range of emotions, but in the end, they look to God; they lean on God; they trust God. They learn to say: "Every blessing you pour out I'll turn to praise. When the darkness closes in, Lord, still I will say, Blessed be the name of the Lord." 


Today in the book of Job, God answers Job's plea of "Why?", with a series of questions. Through the swirling puzzles God sets before Job, God gives a non-answer and the best answer to why so much devastation visited him. God gave Job a "weak" answer that is the strongest of all: "Job, you can't understand. You'll just have to trust me." So, it is in much of our lives. We just have to trust God because we won't understand. 


"The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised." (Job 1:21). 


Let's Pray 

Yahweh, teach me to leave my burning unanswered questions with you and simply trust you. Father, Your ways are not my ways, so give me the faith to believe that you know best. Today Lord, I trust you with my unexplained "whys" and like Job 'blessed be the name of the Lord" in Jesus's name, Amen.
