1 Chronicles 2:1-55; Ezekiel 3:16-4:17; 2 Timothy 4:1-22

Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and
fell down upon the ground, and worshipped. Job 1:20

Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my
salvation. Habakkuk 3:18

Job and Habukkuk faced unprecedented catastrophes. They
had questions to which they were given no answers. Despite this,
they rose above the circumstances and worshipped God. There
are times when difficulties arise in our lives that don’t seem to
make sense, and there are no answers. O that we might be able to
respond like these worthies of the faith, and despite circumstances,
to rise above them and worship God. —W. H. Burnett

When I am sad at heart, teach me Thy way,
When earthly joys depart, teach me Thy way,
Make Thou my pathway plain, teach me Thy way. —B. M. Ramsay
