Discussion for Job 13:15

  • Hi! I have made some terrible mistakes and bad choices in my life as a Christian that have put me in a spot and location that I don't want to be in. If I just trust God and thank Him and praise Him, then I will still come out on top and Romans 8:28 will apply to my life, because of the things I learned from my mistakes and bad choices, Romans 8:29. Please comment on this! Thanks and God Bless You! Ove
  • Thatohatsi for verse 15
    Job was a good man but he had a bad time in his life when his animals died, his children died on the same day. It did not end there, even his skin had sores boils from head to the feet. But he never stopped praising his God. His wife lost hope and even said Job must insult God but Job said to her "you talk as a foolish woman, do we expect the good only from God?" He was a good man so now he even says if God can kill him but still he will trust in Him. Oh my God.
