Wesley's Notes for Job 22:3


22:3 Is it - Such a pleasure as he needs for his own ease and contentment. Nay, God needs not us, or our services. We are undone, forever undone without him: but he is happy, forever happy without us.

    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.
