Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Job 22:21


22:21 Him - With God, renew thy acquaintance with God by prayer, and repentance for all thy sins, and true humiliation under his hand, and hearty compliance with all his commands, and diligent care to serve and enjoy him. It is our honour, that we are made capable of this acquaintance, our misery that by sin we have lost it; our privilege, that through Christ we may return to it; and our unspeakable advantage, to renew and cultivate it. And be at peace - At peace with God, and at peace with thyself, not fretful or uneasy. Good shall come unto thee - All the good thou canst desire, temporal, spiritual, eternal.


Discussion for Job 22

    Job is being accused of some hidden sin and is being admonished to repent. Only
    God knows the heart of man. Let us therefore hold on to our faith in Him when the accuser comes to cause us to doubt. (1 Peter 5:8-10).

    We must never forget to think of him everyday.

    I asked the Lord for a word, and he sent this! I am in this exact position, accused of doing and thinking evil! I was horrified that anyone could think so of me, but when I see Job, the righteous man of God in the same position, I am comforted. I am not more important than he, or indeed than our Lord and Saviour, whom was falsely accused. To God be the glory, I crave His strength and wait on Him!

    This message could not have come at a better time in my life. No more than about 30 minutes ago. In so many words, I said the same thing to my husband because there is so much negative energy in my circle, I had beckoned to using their negative energy spirit. Then I realized this morning, how God has been encircling with positive energy by allowing his angels to share with me how I have allowed them to use me and feed off of their energy, instead of God's energy. I have said things I have never said and acted in a way that was very inappropriate. I just thank love God our Lord Jesus Christ so much whereas I now feel His spirit again and have decided to acquaint myself again with God so that I can be at peace and achieve God's blessings as I do his will.
