God can handle all of our questions! If God cannot stand up to scrutiny then He cannot be God! But, He can. Job wanted to plead his case before God because Job trusted in His righteousness.
One of Job’s questions demanded an answer but it took some time before the answer was given: “Can the dead live again? If so, this would give me hope through all my years of struggle, and I would eagerly await the release of death.” (Job 14:14)
The answer to Job’s question was, “Yes.” When Jesus came to the earth, He stated that, “He was the resurrection and the life.” Through Jesus, we have victory over death. We have much more to live for than just today. We can live– really live– for eternity. We cannot let the momentary struggles of life cause us to take our eyes off the greater prize! There is a heaven to prepare for. How are you preparing for it?
