“The righteous will move onward and forward, and those with pure hearts will become stronger and stronger.” (Job 17:9)
Job’s friends were pretty tough on him. They were wrong in their accusations too. Yet, Job kept focusing on God. Job knew that God’s ways were the only sure steps he could take.
So, Job moved “onward and forward” and became “stronger and stronger,” knowing God was faithful. Even amidst devastation, Job sought God.
Sometimes, one step onward and forward is all we can take. We can trust that God will strengthen us as we keep our focus on Him.
“The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.” (Psalm 34:10)
