God And His Purposes Are Supreme

Then Job replied to the Lord:
" I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.
You asked,
' Who is this that obscures my counsel without knowledge?'
Surely I spoke of things I did not understand,
things to wonderful for me to know.

You said, ' Listen now, and I will speak;
I will question you, and you shall answer me.'
My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.
Job 42:1-5

Out of suffering, out of discomfort can come blessings and knowledge beyond our belief. Have faith, speak honestly, and trust in God and his plan for us. We can not know true happiness if we are never unhappy.
