Emerging Leader Bree Elle Gardner explores the doubt that overtook Job as he experienced great loss and how his questioning of God led to a direct experience of God’s limitless power. Certainty has hardened Job’s heart and it takes this intervention—God’s “tough love”—for Job to realize he has only uttered small talk about wonders way over his head. When we refuse to rest in certainty and let our doubts open up, we expand past ourselves and what we are so certain of, and may get to see God firsthand.
