Click Job 2:10 to test if the verse is valid!

This is one of my favorite verses because it confronts us with the reality that hardship and adversity are just as much from god as blessing. It also provokes us to realize that we should be thankful and praise God for everything he does in our lives, the good, the bad, and the ugly. In the end, adversity that we experience is always according to his perfect plan for us, is that not something to be thankful for?

"Naked I came from my mother's womb," says Job a chapter earlier in verse 21, "and naked I will depart, the Lord has given and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised."

Again, Job demonstrates to us the way we should react to adversity.

"Great is the lord and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable." -Psalm 145:3. The lord IS worthy of all of our praise, his ways our higher than ours and when strife comes into our life, the best thing we can do is also the simplest. Blessed be the name of the Lord.
