God is Doing It - Day 37

Job 8:1 - Job 24:5
          Job is going through a lot of different emotions.
"If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see thou mine affliction;" Job 10:15
          Job does not know what God is up to, yet, he knows to trust the Lord.
"Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him." Job 13:15
          With all the words spoken by Job's friends, this is really all we remember of them;
"I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all." Job 16:2
          Job may not have understood what God was doing but he knew that God was doing it.
"For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him." Job 23:14
         We need to remember that all that happens, good or bad, it is all part of God's plan for our lives. It may be confusing and our friends may not understand why we are going through a trial but we need to keep our eyes on the Lord.


  1. I read that book and have always found myself frustrated with Job's friends. Now that I'm reading it on your blog, it's a reminder we shouldn't seek comfort from our friends and relatives, but from God... at least, consistent comfort. You can always count on God.

    1. You are so right. You can always count on God!
