Job 2:10 … Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?

There is a paradox in this verse; we know that God is good and he loves to give good gifts to his children and yet we also know that because he is sovereign he is the one who controls all things, even the bad. Job is speaking truthfully, he knows that God has the right to do whatever he chooses and yet the words here are words of faith not fatalism. What challenges me is that faith, a faith that loves God and trusts him whatever he sends our way. I want to have faith like that.
