Job was a righteous man who had it all. He was blessed with wealth, influence, and family. Yet his life took a turn and he lost everything. The easy response would have been to assume the suffering would never end. To feel cheated or wronged by God. And yet Job still worshipped God. Not because he understood why things were hard, but because he knew God, and that He was in control.

2. Why do you think it is difficult to praise God when times are tough?
Challenge: Take some time daily this week to praise God, and look for the ways He is working around you even if you are struggling with a difficult situation.
