Appearances Can be Deceiving

Job 5

(v7) What a Blessing When God Corrects You!

Christians say some stupid things sometimes. I just wish that they would engage their brain sometimes. Job's friend was very free with his words. Was all that he said wrong? No. Was all of it bad advice? No! But one thing for sure he had got the wrong end of the stick.

Eliphaz was convinced that Job must have displeased God and Job was now under God's judgement. Nothing could have been further from the truth. God was very pleased with Job in fact he bragged on Job to the devil.

I remember once when a friend had just lost a baby and some crazy "spiritual" Christian suggested that it was the judgement on God. Crazy!!!

God is not in the business of condemning and judging people he is in the business of lavishing His grace on them and forgiving them.
