Today you should read: Job 10

What I love about Job 10 is that it’s Job asking God hard questions in the midst of his suffering void of sin and blame toward God. This shows us how God can take our frustrations and questions. He can take our doubts and worries. We notice this in the Psalms as well but here Job is asking about God’s goodness and sovereignty without rebelling against it and we can do the same in the midst of our suffering and trials. And make no mistake, we know that Job is suffering. Who else compares their suffering to God pouring them out like milk or worse, curdling them like cheese (v. 10)?

I also find it interesting how Job realizes that even if his friends are right and he is in sin or he is in the right suffering such afflictions for righteousness (v. 15-17), he nonetheless is still suffering. That doesn’t take away from his current pain which is something we need to keep in mind when ministering to others in the midst of their sin or God’s sovereignty. That pain still feels the same and they need pointed to the Gospel just the same.
