Wesley's Notes for Job 8:21

Discussion for Job 8

  • Vanessa
    Not once did Job think he was caught in the snare of the fowler, that he was trying his faith, lesson to be learned here
  • Vanessa
    Job was enjoying his self pitying, again he lost everything and groaned about it all, he forgot about the mercy and the love God has for a righteous man, instead of praying for guidance and mercy, he was begging to die, he forgot the love he had for God, we all go through many rough things in our lives but we need to remember God is for us not against us, pray always with a earnest heart
  • Eric
    Job's "friends" are judging him unrighteously. They are assuming that Job has committed some terrible sin, that he does not pray, or live a righteous life. How many times do we judge/accuse our friends or church brothers and sister wrongly?? John 7:24 "judge righteous judgment". One's circumstances are not how we should judge.

    To ME one year ago - It wasn't done for Job or satan's benefit - but ours. The whole Bible is for our benefit.
  • 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
