Though He Slay Me, Yet Will I Trust In Him

Job 13:15, “[15] Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.”

This passage come from right in the middle of Job’s trial. He is sitting with his friends who are scolding him. They are railing on Job telling him that his trial is all his fault. His “friends” told him that he needs to get right with God about.

However, Job knew that he was right with God. He knew that his sin was not the cause of the hard times he was going through. He told his friends, “Though he (God) slay me, yet will I trust in him.” Job was determined to trust in the Lord no matter what happened even if it meant his death.

So many people today want to trust God, but they begin to doubt the moment things go wrong. That’s not how it should be. Imagine if Joseph stopped trusting God in the prison. Imagine if David stopped trusting God in the valley when he faced Goliath. Imagine if Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stopped trusting God before the fiery furnace. Imagine if Daniel stopped trusting God before the lion’s den. The list could go on and on. I have a hard time believing these individuals would have made it through their respective trials if they would have stopped trusting God.

It doesn’t matter what we go through in life. We still must trust God in every situation. Let us make it our focus each and every day to trust God in all things no matter what comes.
