Be Still . . .
Devotionals for Daily Living ©
Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I shall return there. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD.
(Job 1:21 (NAS))
Even after all that Job had experienced, he still felt the need to praise God. During all of his later trials and misfortunes, he still praised God.
True, there were times when he was angry at God, yet he still knew his respective place in the creation. He knew that God was the One who caused all things to be and that it was through this action that caused him to exist.
He praised his Creator even when he did not fully understand the circumstances that he was in. Only one other person in history has suffered more than Job did, and that was Jesus Christ. In both cases, God was praised for His power and authority in all things.
If these two can praise God even when faced with the things that they faced, then we can praise God in our daily lives when we think that all is wrong.
