January 21

So the recorded conversations of Job and his friends are interesting. It seems to be very much like those that we have today with our Christian friends.
Whenever someone is suffering or going through trials, we wonder what they did to deserve such pain. God must have a reason for causing trials and tribulations.
But what about what we read in chapter 1 about God saying that Job was blameless? So...Job didn't 'deserve' this? Well, we know that it wasn't a cause of some un-confessed sin lingering in his life.
Job recognizes who God is.
Job 9:2b-4
But how can a person be declared innocent in God's sight? If someone wanted to take God to court, would it even be possible to answer him even once in a thousand times? For God is so wise and so mighty. Who has ever challenged him successfully?"
