When We Hurt

A Devotional Look at the Book of Job


This issue of Israel My Glory tackles the subject of suffering in the book of Job. Unable to understand why he was enduring such agony, Job longed to question God. Yet throughout his ordeal, he glorified the Lord: “Though He slay me,” Job said, “yet will I trust Him” (Job 13:15). The book of Job stresses God’s omnipotence. Being human, we are incapable of fully understanding the Almighty. But because of what Jesus did for us at Calvary, there’s one thing we know for sure: God loves us.
