The different Worldview of Suffering and trust

In Job 13:15 we read a challenge to us all in our worldly thinking. We read of Job who after much suffering says "Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him."

How different is this worldview than our daily perspective? Remember how Daniel's friends made a similar trust declaration in the Lord God when facing the fiery furnace.

Daniel 3:17 "If it be so, our Lord God whom we serve is able to deliver us from this burning fiery furnace ; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O King. But if not, be it known to you, O King, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image which you have set up."

Their attitude is that either way, their God will deliver them, either out of the furnace or through death!

Our God, the Creator redeemer and Sustainer of all things is all powerful and trustworthy, what a Great God.

I believe Job or Daniel had trusted God continually before the Big One came that made them stood firm. Tks Bro. for the article.
