A story is told of Queen Victoria (Alexandria Victoria), the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from June 20, 1837 and the first Empress of India of the British Raj from May 1, 1876 until her death. She was said to have requested the hymn “Rock of Ages cleft for me; let me hide myself in Thee” to be sung for her as she was about to die.

She might have been perceived as a sinner while she carried out her official duties; but on her deathbed, she told those around her that she loved God and was confident in the face of death.

Similarly, Job, despite the deluge of allegations by his friends concerning his relationship with God, knew perfectly well that the Rock of Ages had been his anchor and that He never allowed his feet to slip to evil. He was confident of his obedience to the word of the Lord, which had always guided him. Little wonder he declared, “Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips…” (Verse 12).

Beyond the perception of his friends about his true spiritual state and the reason for his affliction, Job was convinced about his robust relationship with God. He chose to lean on Him rather than join issues with his friends.

In the same way, once you have a good relationship with God, your confidence will remain unshakable, irrespective of what others say or think of you.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Opinions of others should not define your identity and destiny.
