Galatians 3:23-26

But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed.

Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

When in the midst of sorrow or great difficulty, it is always good to remember the story of Job. How quickly do we tend to grumble, or feel that He has abandoned us?

We may even give up without really knowing what is going on in the spiritual realm. God is always in control; all we must do is have faith and believe, no matter what may come our way!

God Bless You!

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. What was Job's reaction upon learning that all his children and his animals had been killed?

A. Then Job arose, tore his robe, and shaved his head; and he fell to the ground and worshipped. And he said:

"Naked I came from my mother's womb,
And naked shall I return there.
The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away;
Blessed be the name of the Lord."

In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.

Job 1:20-22

What an incredible example for us all: When hearing of all this tragedy, Job fell to the ground and worshipped.

He did not blame God for the terrible events that happened but worshipped Him instead, trusting that He was in control.
