Bible Quotes Job 23:10-11 Mar 3rd

“But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. My feet have closely followed his steps; I have kept to his way without turning aside.” - Job 23:10-11
Job is oppressed by sickness and disease and sorrow. But Job has confidence that the Lord has not forsaken him. It is  one of the earliest books of the Bible, and Job was fabulously wealthy. Everything Job had was lost. But in holding fast to the Lord, even though Job was tested by those who would have had him turn away, Job is blessed with much again. 

You have been given much too. And you can lose it all by following bad advice and being misled. Or just through ordinary tragedies. It is wisdom that allows you to navigate tragedy. Tragedy is terrible and personal. But no matter how terrible, hold to the Lord.
