Application 

Do you “hold to the way” when times are difficult –
confident that God is faithful despite what you are
feeling or experiencing during difficult times?

Do you have a hope beyond this life, beyond the
fiction of a quiet grave with an eternal sleep?

Do you know the Christ who has fulfilled Job’s
every desire?
