1/9/2018 Job Chapters 21-23
To me these passages contain a very subdued recognition by Job on God’s power and grace. In Job 23:21 he writes:
8 “But if I go to the east, he is not there;
if I go to the west, I do not find him.
9 When he is at work in the north, I do not see him;
when he turns to the south, I catch no glimpse of him.
10 But he knows the way that I take;
when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
While Job may not be able to physically “find” God Job recognizes that the Lord does know his path and that after all of his trials he will be found pure.
Do we have that measure of faith during our times of trial?
