“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17
Do you have a favorite Book of the Bible? Or do you have a favorite Scripture? This past Sunday we studied Job 1-2 in my Women’s Sunday School Class. I have to admit that Job is not my ”go to” book of the Bible when I am reading God’s Word.
Reading about suffering is uncomfortable and Job can be a challenging study. But, even though there are things in the Bible that make us uncomfortable or that we have a hard time understanding totally – we must be careful not to just skip them.
ALL Scripture is inspired by God and helps us to grow in our Christian life. May we embrace our journey with the Lord through the good times and through our times of suffering. May our response to life’s challenges and suffering be like Job’s:
“…he fell to the ground and worshiped.”
“Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.” Job 1:22
Lord, I know that I have not had to experience the level of loss that Job did. But, I have had challenging times in my life. Forgive me when I have not responded in a God-honoring way. Forgive me when I have let my eyes focus on my circumstances instead of You! Thank You for walking with me through my times of adversity/suffering and my times of joy!
Blessed be Your name, O LORD!!
