Job 10

My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.

I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.

Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?

Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?

Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man’s days,

That thou enquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?

Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.

Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.

Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

10 Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?

11 Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.

12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

13 And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this is with thee.

14 If I sin, then thou markest me, and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.

15 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;

16 For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.

17 Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me; changes and war are against me.

18 Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!

19 I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.

20 Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,

21 Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;

22 A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.

  1. 1 My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
    2 I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me

    As soon as we lose focus on what’s most important began to feel sorry for ourselves is when we lose sight of what’s most important. While job had not sinned, as things progressively got worse for him he lost focus as to what his life. I began to feel sorry for himself thinking God was punishing him for something he didn’t do. It is a part of our nature to do this almost instinctively and we have to learn how to fight against it by seeking the face of God and pray that God keeps our mind on what is most important..

  2. Job continues his plea to God in this chapter. He knows who his creator is as verse 12 ESV says “You have granted me life and steadfast love, and your care has preserved my spirit.” Same verse NKJV “You have granted me life and favor, And Your care has preserved my spirit.” Job knows who brought him in and who can take him out; but, yet there is this hope… “JESUS today YOU will SAVE me”. As we have this hope and understanding of the love of God, it our job to let others know of His goodness and grow this body of Christ together.

  3. 11. Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.

    12. Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

    Nothing can preserve our spirit like a visitation from God, who created us and grants us life and favor!

  4. 4 Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?

    5 Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man’s days,

    Perception.
    Our perception should be like Christ. We need to take our five senses and put ourselves behind Jesus to maybe see and here the things he heard or does here now. Then we need to think of his responses to those things. If I HEAR someone crying out I’m gonna look for them. The Lost is crying out every day we need to look for them. If I SEE someone that needs a miracle then I’m gonna Pray for them because Jesus gave us power to cast things out. When we seek first the kingdom our five senses are enhanced by the kingdom senses. If you can tell a young man or woman is struggling with something ask them if they’re ok. Then that’s the start of building a relationship. But your love towards them could be the uprising in their spirit that gets them to church. Jesus loves and so should we.

  5. If I am guilty, too bad for me; and even if I’m innocent, I can’t hold my head high, because I am filled with shame and misery. And if I hold my head high, you hunt me like a lion and display your awesome power against me.
    Job 10:15‭-‬16 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/job.10.15-16.NLT

    In the depths of sorrow and depression someone can feel utterly hopeless like there’s no way out. That is why that even in someone’s misery we are called to be the light to people. We can represent Jesus. We can be the light that people need when they are surrounded by darkness. God order our steps today. The pit can get pretty deep and dark before we allow You to pull us out. Some people want to stay there but those that truly are desperate God will reach in and pull us out.

  6. 12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

    Like Paul said he was glad he spoke in tongues more than the rest – why? Because we need a daily renewal! We need daily refreshing to continue through this life on earth everyday. Thank You Lord for keeping me, continue this day, to preserve my spirit and fill me up!

  7. Job 10 : 9-10 [Amp] Remember [ earnestly] I beseech You, that You have fashioned me as clay
    [ out of the same earth material, exquisitely and
    elaborately]. And will You bring me into dust again.[10] Have You not poured me out like milk and cuddled me like cheese ? Here Job’s Third Speech.
    He insists that he is not wicked and God sends punishment on the Righteous as well as the wicked. He complains bitterly, and wishes he has never been born. Lord thank for renewing our lives in the Holy Ghost.

  9. 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; For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.
    Job 10:15‭-‬16 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/job.10.15-16.KJV

    It seems as deep into WOE is me, self despair, pity, Job still finds a bit of praise for God, even though he is literally condemning his very existence, He still maintains that God is Marvelous. And He is Marvelous! Job Needs A Move!
    I Need A Move!

  10. “You gave me life and showed me your unfailing love. My life was preserved by your care.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭10:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Once you get a glimpse of God’s love it is hard to turn away from it. You are loved like no one else can love you and kept like no one else can keep you. I thank God for His love.

  11. 13 And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this is with thee.

    14 If I sin, then thou markest me, and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.

    15 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;

    16 For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.
    I must die daily and repent for my light shall not go out . Thank you Jesus

  12. Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand. Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me. Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?
    Job 10:7‭-‬9 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/job.10.7-9.KJV

    There are times where I ask myself why God. What have I done to be put in this position; then I have to stop and say oh yeah. This is where you put me; the trials that we/I go through is to help strengthen us. Yeah I could’ve just walked away in anger and hurt, but what would that have solved. Absolutely nothing; just because I got into a pickle doesn’t mean that I should start hating everything. My goodness; that is when I should push into praising God harder and giving Him the glory. The enemy has no hold over me. God molded me like a potter molds clay on the wheel; God orders my day and my steps. With that being said; I can chose to rejoice or run. Lord I chose to REJOICE; you are my light and my life. Thank you Jesus for making me and leading me.

  13. Job continues not to speak ill against the Lord. Every time that he talks about his trouble he blames himself or says it would be better for him to not be alive. His faith is still in Jesus. We need to learn through our trials that Jesus is there for us.

  14. 10:4 hast thou eyes of flesh? Or seedy thou as man Seth?
    ——-
    I don’t know about you, but what a prayer meeting Saturday night, truly God was in PoFW….
    the Lord heard my prayer and had compassion for me.
    Hallelujah 🙌🙌🙌🙌.

  15. 8 Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.
    9 Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?
    10 Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?
    11 Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.
    12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

    In the hands of the Creator.

    In cheese making, there is a process of separating the curd, from the whey. Through this it is the curd when it comes together that we know it in its famous form of cheese. Let there is a separation that takes place.
    In pottery, one must first get dirt and work out the imperfections that in the end could result in item breaking. So the potter must first work out those impurities.
    God made our bodies to expel bacteria and viruses, things that are harmful to our bodies.

    If we are ever in doubt of what God is doing, remember that it could apart of the process 9f eliminating things for your good. His ways are far better than our own. God is so amazing and if we will trust in Him and the process that we are going through. We will be better in the end.
    Seek ye First the Kingdom
    How is your altar

  16. 12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

    13 And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this is with thee.

    It amazes me sometimes that when you see people go through trials and tribulations, how quickly they blame God for their inadequate life style of praise and worship and prayer. They look the part and they have no fire. They have the inability to see that the test they are going through is only steps from the greatest testimony that they have ever seen but they insist on the blame game. Job here realizes that even going through this tests, he still was blessed with life by God. And that the Lords visitation grants preservation in his spirit.

    Overall, we that seek the kingdom of God we have to know that God hasn’t left us nor forsaken us in the midst of the storm, he is simply trying our faith to see if we will reach out for him. We can not afford the missed opportunity to trust and rely on God’s strength and spirit to get us past the test. We have to P.U.S.H through it. That is pray until something happens. We already know the ending from the beginning. God is all supreme and he is all powerful. God is way!

    I love the Kingdom!

  17. Job 10

    Job is desperately searching for an answer. He just lets it all out to God.

    Only with time and quiet will I be able to mine through the moments and the memories and discover bits of meaning.

    Here is a quote I found that if we too will remember the beauty of God’s rain of His presence that saturated ever part of our being when we have been beaten down . He is the joy of my salvation!

    “These years have held majestic mountains and deep, deep valleys. We have been tossed and tumbled and laid bare in the dust, but no matter how dry or desperate, the steady rain of God’s grace has watered our souls and nourished our lives.”

    ISAIAH 40:28-31
    “Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
    The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
    He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.
    He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
    Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
    but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
    They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.”

    I will bless the Lord at all times praise will continually be in my mouth . Guard my tongue Lord guard my heart and keep my mind stayed on You . In Jesus Name .

  18. ““‘You formed me with your hands; you made me, yet now you completely destroy me. Remember that you made me from dust— will you turn me back to dust so soon? You guided my conception and formed me in the womb. You clothed me with skin and flesh, and you knit my bones and sinews together. You gave me life and showed me your unfailing love. My life was preserved by your care.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭10:8-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Job knew that God created him; now he felt that God wanted to destroy him. What Job did not know is that God had strictly forbade this calamity to end in death (Job 2:6). We can sympathize with what Job felt, and we understand that he could not know this; yet we also know the truth from the heavenly scene behind the earthly scene.

  19. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    KINGDOM COMMITMENT

    7 Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.

    The context of this statement by Job is from the perspective that no-one can deliver him or set him free from the pain and peril of his current GOD induced situation. Job is well aware of the fact that there is no one he can call on to deliver him from GOD.

    However, I see the scripture as a security blanket to keep me in times of trouble. I choose to serve GOD when he tries me for being faithful and I choose to serve GOD when the deceptive world tries to pull me away.

    We all must make this choice for ourselves. Regardless of the pain and peril, we must allow the hand of GOD to keep us under HIS authority, in HIS Kingdom. No one can deliver us from HIS judgement and no one can deliver us from HIS provision/protection.

  20. Job continues to feel sorry for his self , and complaint. However one thing job didn’t do is loose focus on God. Something we get so up tight about our life’s that we lose focus on the most important thing; reaching the lost .

    It’s important to stay focused on God

  21. iLove the Kingdom in Action
    Job 10:2 I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.

    Notice the words of Job. “I will say unto God…” As we read about Job, we realize Job had a relationship with God. That means Job understood how he could communicate with God. Just Saturday I was talking to a feller about having a relationship with God and speaking God’s Word back to Him. I mentioned that we can take the Word and “hold him to his Word”. Immediately this feller responded that we shouldn’t talk to God like that. This chapter in Job reveals to us that Job talked to God in the same manner. He held God to His Word and from the NLT it reads like this. “I will say to God, ‘Don’t simply condemn me—tell me the charge you are bringing against me.
    Job 10:3 What do you gain by oppressing me? Why do you reject me, the work of your own hands, while smiling on the schemes of the wicked?

    Conclusion: We can all go to God and plead our cause. He is the Righteous Judge and will hear our cry.

  22. 8 Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.

    9 Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

    10 Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?

    11 Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.

    12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit

    Even in the midst of trouble, Job could not deny what God had done in his life before. Thought it brought many questions to his mind as to where the God who had created and persevered him was in the midst of his heartache.

    What he could not see was that God was still pererving Him, he could not see the blessings God was lining up for him.

    He needed to change his perspective from the world view and look from the heavenly view. Though that’s easier said than done.
    When we find ourselves beginning to question God, we may just need to change our perspective.

  23. 12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

    13 And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this is with thee.

  24. 1“I am disgusted with my life. Let me complain freely. My bitter soul must complain.

    Those who are tired and weary will complain. They see only trouble and no end in site for their troubles. The haven’t learned to cast their cares onto Jesus. But if they could trust in God could, their troubles would disappear!

    Isaiah 40:31 But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

  25. If I am wicked, woe to me! And even if I am righteous, I cannot lift up my head. I am filled with shame and aware of my affliction.
    Job 10:15 HCSB

    The word translated here as “shame” is the Hebrew word “qâlôwn” taken from the root word that means “disgrace.” It’s defined as “confusion, dishonor, ignominy, reproach, shame.”

    “Ignominy” further means “public shame or disgrace, humiliation, embarrassment, mortification.”

    Innocent or guilty, it no longer mattered; Job’s public shame and disgrace was the same. He was presumed guilty and disserving of his punishment.
    The shame of reproach hung over him. His reputation was tarnished. He lost all sense of self-worth and could no longer even hold up his head.

    Like Job’s friends, I wonder how many times we have compounded the trials of others by patronizing them, by piling on the condescension, by looking at them as though they got exactly what they deserved? Whether guilty or not, instead of relief and comfort, we’ve helped to weigh them down with the shame of their affliction.

    The raped woman, the man who has been laid off, the abandoned or betrayed spouse, the child of an alcoholic or addict, the molested child, the disabled or deformed, the scarred amputee come home from war, the homeless, the hungry, the grossly overweight; these have all suffered greatly from their afflictions. What good is it to speculate on how they could have done things differently and avoided their fate?

    They are all around us. They sometimes even come into the church, begging God for some reprieve. However, they’ve learned to avoid our eyes to save themselves the compounded shame of watching us turn away, or worse, watching us stare with disgust or reproach. Their heads hang down. They can’t lift their hands. They are covered with shame. Whether from the accusations of callous men, from the lies of the devil, or from their own condemnation, it matters not. Their shame is real, and there seems to be no relief. They long to just curl up and die, and they sit beside us service after service, while we fail to recognize their pain, while we secretly condemn them for not worshipping as they should.

    How horribly presumptuous and judgmental we can be. We see the man begging on the street and presume he could work if he wanted to. We see the prostitute and presume that she is there of her own accord, that she can walk away from her sin anytime she desires. We tell the addict that they haven’t quit because they really don’t want it badly enough. And, we tell the sexually assaulted that they must have asked for it or they wouldn’t have been where they were dressed as they were.

    Oh…we may not say it with our mouths, but our eyes…our turned heads…our disinterested hearts say it all—even if it is not what we are really trying to say at all.

    Compassion. The heart of Jesus Christ is compassion. He touched the leper. He refused to condemn the adulteress. He took the accused by the hand and picked them up out of the dirt and the mire of their lives. He looked the afflicted in the eyes with nothing but love.

    In fact, no man was too unclean to be shown compassion EXCEPT the self-righteous.

    What will we do when they come? Will we compound their shame, or offer them compassion? How will they get here except we bring them? Will they even want to come except we compel them? The halt, the lame, the withered, the blind. The damaged, the afflicted, the addicted, the bruised by the trials of life. The dirty, the poor, the sinner, the ones clothed with shame. God says to bring them all. To love them all.

    We are the light of the world. Light creates hope in darkness. That’s our job: to love hope into their lives until they can lift their heads, their hands, and their hearts up to God.

  26. MSG – “You made me like a handcrafted piece of pottery—
    and now are you going to smash me to pieces?
    Don’t you remember how beautifully you worked my clay?
    Will you reduce me now to a mud pie?
    Oh, that marvel of conception as you stirred together
    semen and ovum—
    What a miracle of skin and bone,
    muscle and brain!
    You gave me life itself, and incredible love.
    You watched and guarded every breath I took.

    In the midst of Job’s complaining to God, he recounts the miracle of life that was given him, which should have been encouragement to his soul.

    We recall in the midst of David’s trial, he had to encourage himself in the Lord. Even Paul said “I think myself happy.”

    We must take control of our thoughts and what we allow to take root in our minds. Our mind is powerful. Whatever we allow to live within it’s walls, become our actions, our words.

    1 Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

  27. 15 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;

    16 For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.

    17 Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me; changes and war are against me.

    While living this life in the flesh, we will ALWAYS face troubles. Life isn’t always going to be how we like it. Jesus let’s us go through some things for a purpose. We may not always know it but we can for sure always trust Him!

  28. Job 10:12, “Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.”

    Preserve means to maintain (something) in its original or existing state; protect, care for, save, keep.
    Not only had the Lord granted Job life and favor, but His VISITATION had preserved (maintained, protected, cared for, saved, kept) his spirit. Sounds like “This is a Move.”
    We all need a VISITATION, “A MOVE,” of the Lord in our life.

  29. I Love To Worship The Lord
    (vs-3)
    Does it please God?
    Ultimately Jobs problem is not with his friends it is with God. He can not understand what benefit receives from oppressing him so.
    Later Job will understand as we must today. God brings even the most difficult experiences into the lives of believers not for His benefit but for ours. When we are in the shadow of suffering we cannot see good that will be revealed in us in the end.

  30. Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.
    Job 10:12 KJV
    Even in this dark time in Job’s life, he recognizes the sovereignty of God in his life. He honors God as his creator and provider. He gives glory to God for all of his blessings and calling it God’s favor on his life. Next, he realizes that even though his outward man is perishing, it is God who is preserving his inner man. We have an awesome God who will keep us, preserve our spirit in all our trials and tribulations!

  31. Have mercy Jesus!

    Most people want to act all tough when something happens to them like they got it all figured out. But we see here the elder Job is trying to figure this thing out with God. I remember when I had my second bad car wreck. It was bad. I woke up from the smoke and haze sitting in the truck wondering what just happened. My first thought was “ Help me Jesus” . It was just a whisper. It felt like no one else in the world could here me but Jesus. When we get into trouble or find ourselves at an impass, we have to be able to just whisper, “ Help me Jesus” “Have mercy. “ This word says that time and chance happen to us all. That means it’s not always someone fault that your in a mess but I do know that Jesus answers regardless if it was lots or if it was meant to be. He’s always had mercy on me.

  32. Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

    Thank you God for your favour and for preserving me in my hard times

  33. 9 Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

    I’ve asked myself in the past if it was wrong of me to question God this way. I didn’t have the cause or right that Job did. My situation was brought upon my by my own wrong doing.

    Job was an innocent man. In his eyes, and in the eyes of everyone around him, something was not right because of all that had fallen upon him.

    The one thing that i sticks out to me is that Job couldn’t see the whole picture of what was going on. He could only see his present. God recorded his life in the Bible for us to have a greater perspective when we seem to find ourselves in a similar situation.

    We know the beginning from the end. God set him up to set us up. Praise God, now when we find ourselves in Jobs shoes, we can say. “All I know is God is at work in my life”

  34. “And if I hold my head high, you hunt me like a lion and display your awesome power against me.”
    ‭‭

    Even if I lifts his head up high you hunt me down like a lion

  35. 12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

    Have you ever been going through something and a dear friend stops by your house to visit with you and before they leave your laughing and enjoying life? That’s how God is but times 100,000.

    He’s that unseen visitor who’s presence is priceless and keeps you going when everything around you says give up. We can out it all into His hands and watch Him work and preserve us.

  36. 20 Are not my few days almost over?
    Turn away from me so I can have a moment’s joy
    21 before I go to the place of no return,
    to the land of gloom and utter darkness,

    Job knew where he was going to end up, yet he let everything he was feeling get a hold of him and let emotions ride it’s course. Jesus is the only one who can and will forgive you. He will make a way and might not take you out of that situation but He will bring you peace and joy. That peace that we need when we let the emotions, stress, fear, anger, hatred, etc take over. Don’t let the enemy steal what God has blessed us with.

  37. Job 10:15 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;

    Psalm 25:18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
    Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;

    Isaiah 3:11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be Ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

  38. 12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

    Life. That is what you get when He comes. When He descends with His Spirit you get that boos of joy, peace, righteousness.

    Proverbs tells us that the spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, but a wounded man who can bear.

    It is only by His Spirit that we can overcome and be triumphant in this life.

  39. “Are your eyes like those of a human? Do you see things only as people see them?”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭10:

    We clearly don’t see what God sees when some of us are going through a trial. He sees growth and victory and sometimes we see things in a different aspect. Imagine if God would see things like we do?
    As Christian we should have assurance that God will make a way, when we don’t see a way. God will open doors when doors have been close, God will heal us when doctors give no hope. He sees things differently from you and me.

  40. 1 My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
    2 I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.

    Here Job still never blames God for his misfortunes but turns it to himself and blames himself for the situation he is in. He has complaints against himself and asks God not to condemn him. How many of us could do the same??

  41. Job was right to have a talk to the Lord in these verses because he is in His hands and his situation is known of God. However, God is not his tormentor. He has removed the hedge surrounding him and allowed Satan to do the tormenting. If we can do like Job in the harsh trials of this life and talk to God, we can ask the purpose of it all and seek him through it all, holding onto Him until it passes.

  42. I say to God: Do not declare me guilty, but tell me what charges you have against me.
    Job 10:2 NIV

    Ask and you shall recieve. This also applys to certain areas in your life that might need work. If your unsure what exactly is holding you back from a intament relationship with God, ask. Ask him to search your heart guild you and and give yourself over. Job didnt know what he had done wrong not that he did he do anything wrong he was simply being tested but sometimes for us its the same too. He simply jist wants us to grow in him. Grow in our faith. Struggle can be painful but its something that we all have to go through to be physically and mentally fit for his kingdom.

  43. “You made me like a handcrafted piece of pottery— and now are you going to smash me to pieces? Don’t you remember how beautifully you worked my clay? Will you reduce me now to a mud pie?“
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭10:8-9‬ ‭MSG‬‬

    Like Pastor mentioned in Leadership tonight, sometimes we have to be pushed into a direction that we never would have gone on our own if we weren’t being led to do so. And during that time we’re being pushed, challenged and molded we may feel like we want to give up but keep striving, keep moving forward, the results of the trial are near.

  44. 1 My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.

    2 I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.

    3 Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?

    4 Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?

    5 Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man’s days,

    6 That thou enquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?

    7 Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.
