Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Job 13:15
How much do you trust God?
Most of us trust Him more with our death than with our life.
We say we walk by faith but fear taking a step into the unknown. Yet, we trust God so much we believe by faith that when the time comes to take a last breath, He will welcome us with open arms.
If we trust Him so mightily in death should we not do the same in life.
Jesus said, “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matt 10:28-31
There is much more to fear in death than in life. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Heb 10:31
Job trusted the Lord God with his life and his death. He believed he was innocent of any transgression and yet through all his troubles he maintained his faith in God in life or death.
I trust God, too. Perhaps my faith in life is not as strong as my faith in death. However, I do trust in Him as my Lord and Savior.
I encourage you to do the same.
