Discussion for Job 8

  • Anne
    Job is being encouraged not to lose hope but to trust in God who is Just and will bring him to an expected end.
  • Pastor Ndingi joseph
    Thank God for the devil he is our springboard to higher increase. The only thing that starts from up to down is the grave. Little beginning is processing time and God does not by pass process for progress
  • Me
    I understand the passage, but God didn't need to prove anything to satan, because he already knew job would be faithful, so why even put job through all that pain?
  • Katie Henry
    Rich. It wasn't the LORD doing these things. It was satan! Did you read the beginning of this book? GOD was so proud of Job and KNEW JOB inside and out and knew he wouldn 't cave to satan. GOD knew Job would never curse GOD. Satan was going to and fro on the earth... doing what? Accusing. Just what he always does. Even to GODS face satan said that Job only loved GOD because GOD made him rich blessed him accusing . So God allowed this to happen. To prove Jobs love and faith to GOD. Also to teach us a lesson. Satans evil spirit still goes to and fro on the earth this day doing the same thing as he is doing here... but also know, some day satan himself- de facto will be back again.
  • Adewale ADEREMI for verse 7
    My little, insignificant 'today ', is nothing to be compared to my great, more glorious 'tomorrow ' which the Lord has prepared for me.
  • Though right now it may seem rough, but isn 't solely about where we are or where we have been. We trust God for a peaceful and joyful end as that is most important.
