Jan 6 (Daily reading: Job 10-13) Even during his suffering—and the mental anguish of asking, “Why?”—Job could still affirm some truths that he believed about God. In yesterday’s reading, we saw that he said about God: “His wisdom is profound, His power is vast” … “He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted” (9:4,10, NIV). Then, in today’s reading: “You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in Your providence watched over my spirit” (10:12). “In His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind” (12:10). “To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are His” (12:13). These assurances enabled Job to say, despite all that he was going through, “Though He slay me, yet will I hope in Him” (13:15). All of us struggle when things happen that we cannot explain, or, as James Dobson entitled his book, “When God Doesn’t Make Sense.” At such times, remember what you know about God, about His love, grace and mercy. And you too will find the strength to say with Job, “Yet will I trust Him!” (13:15, NKJV). God alone is totally trustworthy!
