(Last week I had trouble getting things posted. For several days
the blog came out looking fuzzy with small print--then large.
Hmm, wonder why...)
Job’s life is crashing around his ears, but how does he answer
his wife’s advice to curse God and die?
“‘We take the good days from God--why not the bad also?’
NOT ONCE THROUGH ALL THIS DID JOB SIN.
HE SAID NOTHING AGAINST GOD.” (Job 2:10)
Amazing, simply amazing! Job lived before Abraham when there
were no Jews, nor Christians; no Bibles, support groups, or worship songs.
What had touched Job’s heart so deeply? God Himself.
Our dog knows how to surrender. He flips over on his back and waves
his paws. But his mistress cannot seem to stay surrendered. I find it
much easier when everything is to my liking, but when the bad times
come--I crab. However, I still know that God is good--all the time, and
though I sometimes let Him have it, I give into His ways in the end.
As we progress through the Book of Job, we will get a better handle
on how a righteous man grieves.
