“You’re a bunch of pompous quacks! I wish you’d shut your mouths…”~Job

Job was innocent.  He was favored by God.  Yet satan asked permission to whip Job and God said do what you must, but don't kill him.  

When in the midst of suffering, it is sometimes tough to know what to think.  Even your friends, while being well intentioned, may be way off course in their judgement of your situation.  Truth remains in the hands of God.  It's best to go to the source of all truth.  Job voiced it like this…

"I've had it with you—I'm going directly to God. You graffiti my life with lies. You're a bunch of pompous quacks! I wish you'd shut your mouths — silence is your only claim to wisdom."~Job  

So it seems God is well aware of the suffering we are engaged in.  He also is inclined to limit our suffering.  I'm inclined to think when satan attacks and we stand firm in our love for God, we authenticate the love He has for us.  His love was ultimately proved by His decision for Jesus to die on the cross for us.

I also think when we don't remain faithful in times of suffering, God is saddened in light of what He did for us on the cross.    It is way past time for believers to stop whining about how unfair life is and start loving God regardless of the cost.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
