Life is full of ups and downs. Job had seen his experience from both spectrums of life. He saw the highly revered life of admiration and the low life of public ridicule. He took the time to recount how good it was when things were going well. He also knew how it felt when things turned sour.
One constant was present in both recollections: Job was able to call out to God. We do not serve a God who abandons us when things take a turn for the worst. God is with us all the time. We cannot control the course of life but we can know that regardless of what happens, God is always with us.
God does not look at our lives from a distance with disinterest. He is actively engaged in our lives. He is right there every step of the way. He dries every tear and lifts you up when you fall. Regardless of your challenges, God is always right there for you.
