Mid Week Devotional With Chris Chase
"I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know." (Job 42:3) Sometimes, at the most difficult times of our lives, God can seem distant or like He's not interested in our plight. That's because our human emotions can override trust in God's truth, and we can come to believe that no desirable outcome to our situation exists. Job shows us that with endurance and patience we can learn whatever lessons God wants us to learn. It was that very trust that caused Job to glorify God at the conclusion of his suffering. As a result of Job's patience and unwavering trust during his long ordeal, he gained a new understanding of his sovereign God and a greater reassurance of the joys of being dealt with as one of His children!
