Then I will also acknowledge to you that your own right hand can give you victory.
Job 40:14 NRSV
God not only challenges Job but also acknowledges to him that he has within himself the strength to triumph over his trials and loss. In response, Job humbles himself, acknowledges the might of God, and is blessed. For a while, grief may feel like a test of your will against God’s will. But God is God—so much more than a right hand aide. When you acknowledge God and, like Job, use your God-ordained inner strength and resources to persevere through grief, you will be victorious as well.
God, your right hand upholds me. My hand is in yours. Amen.
My victory over grief is a partnership with God.
