Job 10:8-9

 
Your hands have made me and fashioned me, An intricate unity; Yet You would destroy me. Remember, I pray, that You have made me like clay. And will You turn me into dust again?
Job 10:8-9

Job could not understand what God was doing through his suffering and it was important that he didn't understand. Had Job known that God was using him as a weapon to defeat Satan, he could have simply sat back and waited trustfully for the battle to end. But if God had explained things to Job, that would have given Satan more fodder for the cannon. So Job is left to survey his life and come up with the same conclusion we may have, "Why this waste?"

We may ask the same thing when a young person dies. However, nothing that is given to Christ in faith and love is ever wasted, like the five missionaries who were martyred in Ecuador at the hands of the Auca Indians. Some called it "a tragic waste of manpower." But God thought differently, and the story of these five heroes of faith has been ministering to churches ever since. Are you informed or suffering today? Know that God has a purpose and will use every moment of your life's experience for His glory.

Father knows best,

Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
