Week 38 – Rock Bottom:

Many of us have had a time when we felt like we have hit rock bottom. That time is this week for Job; he has lost everything, he is physically tormented and his wife and best friends are convinced that he has done something horrible. With all these troubles threatening to overwhelm him, Job hits his lowest point and pleads with God to hear his case.

In his pleading Job can be an example for us in our suffering because even at his lowest point Job is looking up to God. He is angry and upset but he never turns his back on his Lord. In Job 19:25-27, Sunday’s reading, Job declares that God is his redeemer and one day he will see Him face to face. Even though Job doesn’t understand why these things are happening to him He still has faith in God and looks to Him for his salvation.
