I’m struggling today to write on this reading as I can’t imagine going through what Job went through. The loss of one’s family and then everything he owned. What a struggle he must have endured that pain must have been over powering! Yet he still praised the Lord. He was a man of integrity who feared God and turned away from evil.
Through all this sadness of Job his love for God never wavered.
Job 7 Verse 19 is of interest. God said He will rescue you from six calamities; no harm will touch you in SEVEN… God created the earth and everything in it in 6 days and on the 7th day He rested There is a connection here for Job, we find that He will rescue him from 6 calamities and on the 7th He will bring rest upon him and no evil will touch him. Job’s struggle when he became ill and his friends came to him and sat with him for 7 days and 7 nights in silence, it’s here that Job began to speak and cursed the day he was born.
God’s love and affection for us is the wonders of wonders especially here in Job 5:9 He does great and unsearchable things, wonders without number.
