The chapters we read today reflect the weight of Job’s sorrow and trouble.

He said:

  1. My grief and calamity are heavier than the sand of the sea, 6:2, 3.
  2. My words stick in my throat, 6:3.
  3. My spirit drinks poison and I feel terror, 6:4.
  4. I want to die, 6:8, 9; 7:15.
  5. I don’t have the strength to hope, 6:11.
  6. I am full of despair, 6:14.
  7. My brothers acted deceitfully, 6:15.
  8. My spirit is in anguish and there is bitterness in my soul, 7:11.
  9. I loathe my life and my days are empty, 7:16.
  10. Look away, let me swallow, 7:19.
  11. I can’t catch my breath, 7:18.

Our lives on earth could be compared to toddlerhood. We feel trials have destroyed our life, but we haven’t even started to live. Eternity is so long we cannot even grasp the concept.

A toddler blamed for something he did not do, will laugh about it when he is older. No matter what trials or tribulations we endure on earth – in heaven we will laugh!

Job 5:16, “So the helpless has hope, and injustice shuts her mouth!” Modern English Version

Those who serve God have a heritage from God. We have a book full of promises – the Bible.

Isaiah 54:17, “NO weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment, you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me, says the Lord.” Modern English Version

God promises:

  • Victory at the end of the trial.
  • Justice.
  • Condemnation of the accuser.
  • Vindication.

Trust Him. He gave Job double for his trouble.
