Have you ever looked in the mirror and all you could do was nitpick or see only negative things in your reflection?
We can be really hard on ourselves. There are too many opinions of what your image should be in magazines at the checkout line, billboards as we drive down the road and let’s not forget the television shows and commercials. We hear plenty of examples of what the world believes we should be.
If we listen to those opinions, we will find we are lacking or needing to be more than we feel we are. But if we look in the Word of God, we can discover amazing truths about our true identity. Let’s dig deeper in this free Bible lesson on Job 33:4 and discover the life God gives us.
Sometimes in Scripture, we come across a verse, through a comment made by someone that may or may not actually follow God. But the words spoken are given to us by God to learn from and help us in our walk with Him. Job 33:4 is one of those verses.
You see, Job had lost everything and had suffered great pain.
He was visited by 3 friends who had opinions and many words to say to Job about who God was, who Job was, what he must have done and should do. We all have friends like that too, right? But Job’s friends were not giving good advice.
Job, his situation and his friends can be used to help us in our spiritual and physical walk with the Lord.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
The book of Job is a hard read to see someone suffer to the extent that Job did. He lost everything. His family, fortunes and his home. His friends if you can call them friends, offered some bad advice as to why he was under this horrific suffering.
