“Should we accept only good from God and not adversity?” Throughout all this Job did not sin in what he said. Job 2:10b CSB
We don’t worship God because things are good or otherwise. We worship Him because of His sovereign oversight and care for our life. Even in adversity, I am
(i) here by God’s appointment. He brought me here. It is by His will I am in this perplexity. In that fact I will rest.
(ii) here in His keeping. He will keep me here in His love and give me grace to behave as His child.
(iii) here under His training. He will make the trial a blessing, teaching me the lessons He intends me to learn and working in me the grace He means to bestow. And,
(iv) here for His time. In His good time He can bring me out again, how and when He knows.
Let me just say, I am here.
