My Slayer Is My Savior

Robert Traill (The Throne of Grace), Works, 1:64:

Faith can stand under that distress that breaks the back of presumption; Job 13:15, 16, Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him; but I will maintain mine own ways before him. He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him. “He hath taken away my children all at once, my estate in one day; hath taken away my health, and made me miserable, to a proverb in all ages: although he should proceed, and slay me with his own hand, my slayer is my Saviour, my death shall be my salvation.” Great words, and hard to be spoken in the day of heavy trial! God slaying Job, is Job’s salvation. God slays, Job trusts, and maintains his confidence under the stroke. No hypocrite can do this; and many believers do but bungle at the doing of it. There is an extremity a-coming on every man, that will try and discover what metal there is in his faith; prepare for it.
