Saved Through Faith

Today I read about Job, and I just thought about how we are just like him in many ways. We go through troubles and misery and sorrow, but God is still there to catch us in the end. He will never let go of our hands once we have accepted His. He saves us from great troubles, like loss of a house, children, wife, friends, family, pets.

In place of those things, He puts something new to think about in our hearts. Faith. Faith that God will take care of us. Faith that no matter what, our salvation is secure. Faith that God will always love us. Going through and surviving terrible sicknesses like scarlet fever, cancer and others strengthen our faith and build up our relationship with God. Our everyday troubles cause us to pray more, to read the Word more, to exercise our faith more. That is the true way that God saves us.
