Before Life Unravels

in Bible Characters Obedience/Discipleship Pain/Suffering

Before your next trial in life, make a choice. Here's today's Bible Minute.

Let's take a look at Job. Wave after wave of calamity came to him. Job 1:18 says, "While he was still speaking, another also came and said, 'Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother's house, and suddenly a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people, and they are dead."

Job goes from being a proud father to be a father with no children at all. If he hadn't already made up his mind that regardless of what happens in this life, God is still just, Job would be falling apart at this point.

So be like Job. Choose now to trust God so that when unsuspected tragedy comes you're ready to handle it, because you already know that God is good.
