Job 12:1-25

Job 12:1-25

πŸ‘‰ Jobs friends have acted as if they alone are wise (v 2). But Job reminded them of two realities that he had experienced.

  1. Sometimes the righteous suffer (v 4).
  2. Sometimes the wicked are at peace (v 6).

πŸ‘‰ All of creation knows that the Lord is in control (v 7-10).

πŸ‘‰ God:

β€’ has wisdom, might, counsel, and understanding (v 13)

β€’ withholds and sends water (v 15)

β€’ strength, sound wisdom, the deceived, and the deceiver are all his (v 16)

β€’ is greater than counselors, judges, kings, and priests (v 17-19)

β€’ makes and destroys, gives and takes away (v 23-24)

β™₯️ Job was in great pain – both physical and spiritual. Yet, I love how – though sometimes he seemed tempted to doubt – he always came back to basic truths about God. In the midst of pain and suffering – we must preach the gospel to ourselves – remind our hearts of the greatness and goodness of God.

You are loved.
