Infinite Wisdom

In the middle of the Book of Job, while Job is at the height of his suffering, he utters these beautiful words of faith and hope (see Scripture art below). Earlier in the book he described his affliction like this: “Like a slave who longs for the shadow, and like a hireling who looks for his wages, so I am allotted months of emptiness, and nights of misery are apportioned to me.” (Job 7:2-3)

No matter how upside-down or inside-out our lives appear to us, behind the seeming chaos and confusion stands the infinite wisdom of God. As James reminds us, “We call those happy who were steadfast. You have heard of the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.”
