I Will Hope in God

Even if he kills me, I will hope in him. —Job 13:15

Some people will never understand what it means to have faith in God. They’ll think it’s foolish to continue to submit to God during times of extreme misfortune. Many won’t be able to comprehend the sovereignty of God because they only view God as a means to an end.

These are the very things that Job experienced during his lifetime. Job went through so much pain and suffering. Everyone around him thought he was stupid for trusting God. But as Job stood in the face of adversity, pain, and suffering, he remained steadfast with hope in God.

Even if he kills me, I will hope in him. I will still defend my ways before him. (Job 13:15)

Job had already lost everything that was of earthly value. But even the possibility of losing his life wasn’t enough to make him turn away from God. He knew that death meant he’d stand face to face with God because he was a man who was completely surrendered to God. God was still there, and Job still trusted Him.

Make it Personal
