As we studied in yesterday's devotion, we see that Job's first response when he was going through his trial was to worship the Lord. Instead of complaining to God for allowing the tragedies into his life, he worshiped the Lord. He knew that God had blessed him with everything and that, "the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord" (Job 1:21). Today, we see that Job's second response when going through his trial was to have faith in God. Seemingly out of nowhere, Job's life fell apart. Everything he had owned and loved was taken from him, yet despite that, he chose to worship the Lord and have faith in Him. We may not understand when going through a trial why God is allowing it or even what his plan is, but we must always have faith in God that He knows what's best and that we will trust Him. God knows the outcome of our storms. Isn't it better to trust the Master to lead us out of the storm? Don't let the waves around you get your focus off of Him. Keep your eyes focused on Him and keep your faith firmly in Jesus Christ.
For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
Job 19:25-27 (KJV)
