Though He Slay Me
Scripture to read today: Job 13
Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him.
Job 13:5 is the ultimate cry of someone who puts his hope in God through his trials. He says, “Though he slay me, yet I will hope in him.” Two critical things are at play here for those of us who are walking through trials. The first is that he recognized God had slain him. He isn’t blaming his friends, the devil or even himself. He recognizes the sovereign hand of God even in his pain. Second, he says that he will hope in Him. In other words, he will praise God even when it hurts, because that is his only hope!
I do not know what you are going through, but I am sure of this, your Heavenly Father knows exactly what He is doing. If you can trust the heart of God, even for a moment, you may be able to trust the will of God. May that lead you to worship!
Ask God to lead you to worship in the midst of the trial.
