Job 22: 1—25: 6
Job struggles today with being frustrated with God’s sovereignty. He finds himself wanting to go to God’s court but can’t find Him. He is annoyed that he is suffering when it seems that the wicked prosper. He is wrestling with the fact that God either does care about earth and is sovereign or he is just the big eye in the sky that doesn’t care. I have been there, and I am sure you are too. We are supposed to understand that God is so big He spoke creation into being, AND He knit me together in my mother’s womb? We are supposed to understand that He disciplines the ones He loves, and will pour His wrath out on the wicked, BUT He also will show Mercy to anyone He chooses? I did not grow up in church, but fellow believers have told me that they did not feel comfortable asking God these questions. They were told you were just supposed to take it on faith. But Job shows us that God is not afraid of our honest seeking questions. As long as you are not questioning His RIGHT to be God over all creation, you are free to ask questions. God is even bigger than our questions.
Bil’s short answer is the hope that these “frenemies” are almost done blathering. He said, “How can a mortal be innocent before God?” AND ALL THE BELIEVERS SAID, “FAITH IN JESUS!” AND THREW THEIR PRAISE HANDS IN THE AIR LIKE WE JUST DON’T CARE!
