But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I shall come out like gold. Job 23: 10 NRSV
Are you following God?
Even if you cannot see God, are you on the path God has set for you?
Does God know the way that you are taking?
If God tested you right now, would you come out like gold?
Job is pretty confident that, even when he cannot perceive God, that God is aware of where Job is. That is a real GPS - God Personally Sees!
That is why Job really wants a meeting with God. God knows that Job is innocent. God knows that, if Job is tested, he will be more than righteous. He will shine and be as valuable as gold!
Job struggles in being right and righteous yet suffering.
Are you in the right?
Are you following the path of righteousness?
What would it take for you to come out like gold if you should be tested?
God, make my paths straight. Guide me on the road of righteousness. Even when I cannot perceive you, may your GPS keep me from getting lost. I want to come out like gold, God! In Jesus' name. Amen.
