Job 5:17…”Blessed is the one whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.” Our lives are in God’s hands, and if we are in Christ this is for our good and His glory. Believers are not to expect to be free from trials. We learn from Job’s history that steadiness of mind and heart under trial is one of the highest attainments of faith. There is little exercise for faith when all things go well. But if God raises a storm, permits the enemy to send wave after wave, and we continue to pursue Him, then He is glorified.
