Daily Devotional
July 24
 
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 . . .
Job 13:14-15 (a)
 
And with these words, Satan lost his bet. Although Job didn’t navigate his difficulty perfectly, he completely shuts Satan down right here. “Even if I don’t understand what God is doing, even though it seems to be unfair, even if He should slay me in the process, yet I will trust Him,” Job proclaims. Yes, Job’s faith will falter - but here it’s ignited.

It’s one thing to have faith for healing. It’s a greater thing to have faith for sickness. That is, it takes greater faith to say, “I come to You for healing. But, Lord, should You, as You did to Paul, say, ‘My grace is sufficient,’ I will still trust You. I have faith in You - not faith that I can get You to do what I want You to do - but faith that You will do what’s best.”

Even if the affliction doesn’t go away, even if the problem continues, even if the solution doesn’t come, faith says, “Though You slay me, I will still trust You because You were slain for me. You gave up everything because You love me. Therefore, I embrace whatever You decide to do. You see things I don’t. You know things I can’t.”

Here, with his body broken out in boils, with his worldly possessions and his family taken from him, with his friends relentlessly accusing him, faith flares up in Job.
