We say they are happy because they did not give up. You have heard about Job’s patience, and you know the Lord’s purpose for him in the end. You know the Lord is full of mercy and is kind.
My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart You, God, will not despise.
Thank You, God, that through prayer and Your Word we have the power of endurance beyond our understanding.
2 Corinthians 4:17
The little troubles we suffer now for a short time are making us ready for the great things God is going to give us forever.
And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of men, but God knows your hearts; for that which is highly esteemed among men is detestable in the sight of God.
A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.
Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him, but I will defend my own ways before Him.
1 Peter 5:10
But after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called us to His eternal glory through Christ Jesus, will restore, support, strengthen, and establish you.
