Please read Job chapters 26, 27, 28, and 29 today. Here’s what I am thinking about today – leave a comment and share your thoughts too!
Even in his pain, Job refuses to speak against God. Can you hear the sarcasm in 26:1-4? I have to say, I’d be fighting the urge to be sarcastic as well! However, Job is constant in his view and faithfulness to the Lord:
“Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways,
And how small a whisper we hear of Him!
But the thunder of His power who can understand?” (26:14 NKJV)
“As long as my breath is in me,
And the breath of God in my nostrils,
My lips will not speak wickedness” (27:3-4 NKJV)
Job knew: the truth is that God is sovereign, able to do anything. He refuses to speak lies against God, even in the pain of his current circumstance. Such an example to us.
