On Life: Dealing with difficulty; a Lesson from Job

After his servants came to him with all the terrible news of the evil that had befallen him, the bible says 'Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped'.(Job 1:20)
Job worshiped God for loosing everything? An anomaly of some kind to the human mind, but the wisdom of God in truth. When we face dire impossible situations, our first response usually is to whine and murmur and complain to those around. Talking about it helps for sure, but you need to be sure the person you're talking to can help.
There's a better recipe; I recommend Job's path. You may not feel like it but that's when you've really begun to walk by faith. It is at that point worship becomes truly a sacrifice and an act of faith towards God with whom all things are possible.
Don't talk to people about the challenge. Talk to God in worship for He knows and already created the way out for you ever before you got there.
So you too can lift your hands in worship in the midst of the pain.
