Get a little help from our friend Job... if he could believe God for God's best - how much more can we - who have the power source of Christ (His Holy Spirit) living within us?
- Job 23:10-12
10 But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
11 My feet have closely followed His steps; I have kept to His way without turning aside.
12 I have not departed from the commands of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my daily bread. [emphasis mine]
Do you and I treasure the words of God more than our daily intake of physical food?
- Romans 5:2b-5
And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.
