Today’s reading Job 5-7

Job 5:17-18 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: Therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: He woundeth, and his hands make whole.

Job realizes that whatever happens in his life is under the control of the Lord. He knows that God is at work. He knows that God is disciplining and directing his life. He knows that God will only do what is best for us.

When things are going wrong, or what we consider to not be on the schedule we tend to think that God is failing us. The truth is that I need to be drawn closer, to think of what His will is. I need His working in my life.

If something does apparently go wrong we can be assured that His hands will heal us.

So what are you going through? How are you hurting? What do you need? Turn to the Lord and allow Him to do a work in your life. Look expectantly at His hands and trust that He has only your best interest at heart.

He may discipline but He also heals. Trust God in whatever situation you find yourself in!
