    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

They saw him afar off, and before he came near to them, they conspired against him to kill him. They said to one another, 'Behold, this dreamer comes. Come now ...

With Friends Like These

  • When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him. Job 2:11 NIV 

    When Job went through a terrible trial, three of his friends came to comfort him. One by one they gave long-winded speeches explaining that Job was suffering because of sin in his life. God had called Job "My righteous servant" in chapter 1. After all of this, in chapter 42, God showed up in a whirlwind and set things straight.

    When Jesus said it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven, the disciples asked who then can be saved? Because it was thought that wealth and blessing were God’s stamp of approval. While it is safe to say that a good life can stem from good choices, and a bad life can be a result of bad choices, many bad circumstances have nothing to do with the choices that were made. 

    I know some really good people going through some really hard times. Today remember that if things are going great for you that it is not necessarily a sign of God’s approval, and if things are going awful for you it is not necessarily a sign of God’s judgement. You can be right in the middle of God’s will and in the worst trial of your life.
