As Job lamented earlier in this Book, “Man is born to trouble and hardship.” (Job 5:7) That’s because we live in a very broken world…filled with calamity, destruction, and suffering. Thus trouble can overtake any of us, at any time, whether we’re a Believer or not…simply because of sin in the world. But also, the misery, and hardship we encounter can be self-inflicted by wrong thinking and bad decisions. We are then sold as an indentured servant or slave to the ruler of our own sin nature. But Isaiah 40:2 exhorts us that our hard service has been completed and our sins have been paid for…that we are no longer slaves to sin anymore, but sons and daughters of the Most High God.
