Devotional: When We Suffer

Christian Women's Devotion on Our Response To Suffering


Read: Job chapter 42 (NKJV)

Job's life was incredible. He was an upright, devout and godly man—yet he went through so much anguish. If it's not enough to lose his hired hands, his cattle and flock, his house and also all his children, he also was physically afflicted and considered an outcast. Did he still believe? Did he still have hope?

We see in this last chapter of Job, how God came through and gave him a double portion of all that he had lost. We too go through seasons of turmoil and anguish. Whether it be in the loss of a loved one or inner struggles that try to choke us. Job lost all, yet he did not stop believing in God. Sure there were times when he was depressed—but he held onto hope.

We can look at what we are going through and feel utterly overwhelmed. We feel as though we may as well give up, because we lose hope of ever seeing the victorious outcome that we will have as we hold on to God.

This is a natural response. And we often find ourselves questioning God. But in the midst of it all, we need to continue to daily reach out to the Lord. After all, He is the only one we can truly trust in, and be confident that He will see us through and will not let us down.

Maybe you're going through a really rough time right now. Will you give it over to the Lord? Reach out again to Him. You won't be disappointed.

Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail). - Psalm 55:22 (AMPC).

Lord, I feel so burdened
And feel so very lost,
Come again and touch me
As I lay it before the cross.
