‘I shall come forth as gold.’




Job 23:10 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

10 But he knows the way that I take;
    when he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

Lessons learned throughout my life span; nothing stays the same even if you don’t do anything to change it.  It seems really silly to think like this but the fact of the matter is that each day things happen, circumstances are changing all the time.  People change their minds constantly and what may have been super important yesterday is just another something today.  

I think about so many things I need to do and want to do but I just don’t have the time, I work all day and when I get home I make super and we sit down to a meal.  After the meal we get the dishes washed and sit down to watch something on TV, take a bath and go to bed.  The circle of my life seems so mundane, constant repetition.  

Now looking at Job, the man went through so much, lost everything, even his children and at the end of it all Job states ‘I shall come forth as gold.’  The process changed him and he knew that it was a good process ~ a God process.


Prayer
O Lord God as Job went through life with all the difficulties he faced we pray please give us the strength, wisdom and understanding to face our own trails so that at the end of the day we too may declare ‘I shall come forth as gold.’  In Jesus Name, Amen
