When your life is in complete shambles, there has to be something that preserves you and keeps you moving forward. Otherwise life would seem meaningless. Job valued God’s care and his deep love and acknowledged those as the preserving force for him.
“You clothed me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and sinews. You have granted me life and steadfast love, and your care has preserved my spirit” (Job 10:11-12).
For Job, everything else in life makes no sense. Nothing else gives hope or satisfaction. yet these are the things he can cling to. God is his creator. He gave life and steadfast love, and his continuous care has preserved Job. What bold and precise understanding about God’s kindness.
But you struggle to make sense of the rest of life. Everything seems like a whirlwind completely out of control. The key is to remind yourself that God will preserve your spirit. He formed your body and gave you life. Cling to Him.
