Reading about Job a few days ago was kinda timely. Providential.
“Adversity so quickly exposes fault lines in human nature…without Christ, we are merely victims, but in Him we become victors. ”
Prayers of the Bible by Gordon J. Keddie
When Job was hit with calamity upon calamity, he didn’t respond with “Why me?” I don’t usually respond with “Why me?” either, but I do respond with “Woe is me”. I do respond with worry instead of trust.
The best verse I read was what Job said to his wife: “Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” – Job 2:10
