I have never been in Job’s shoes (not even close), yet I am glad to learn from him and what he suffered and how he responded. Job 13:14-16 says, Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand? Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him. He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.
Faith praises God in sad conditions. … Faith can praise God because it sees mercy even in the greatest affliction. … Will we let a few present troubles become a grave to bury the memory of all His past mercies? What God takes from us is less than we owe Him, but what He leaves us is more than He owes (us). William Gurnall
I have been encouraged greatly today in God’s word as I am trained in righteousness. I also found encouragement in Cavman’s blog…Considering Faith and Grace… as he highlights some quotes from Puritan William Gurnall and expresses some of his own as well.
