I share one point with you from today’s reading that just moved my heart. Job has a wrong conception about what is taking place in his life,
“For the arrows of the Almighty are within me…the terrors of God are arrayed against me.” (6:4a/c)
He sees this all as an attack from God.
Which then is what makes Job’s faith even more amazing,
“But it is still my consolation, and I rejoice in unsparing pain, that I have not denied the words of the Holy One.” (6:10)
In spite of all his suffering and pain he remains steadfast and true.
One other thing I like even though Job sees this as an attack of God against him, he won’t accept that it is due to some evil in his life and he won’t allow his friends to say such either,
“Now please look at me, and see if I lie to your face. Desist now, let there be no injustice; (the injustice is the way his friends are accusing him) Even desist, my righteousness is yet in it.” (6:29)
A quick post tonight. We’ll see you tomorrow…I’m going to bed…can’t wait to get home tomorrow! It has been a blessing to learn some things here in Croatia and to be a part of the discussion regarding one of the most important justice issues of our time, caring for the Syrian Refugees but to hug and kiss my wife and kids will be a sweet blessing!
Tomorrow’s Reading: Isaiah 12-17
