Job: Please re-read verses 29:16-31. Notice this is Job pouring out his feelings of abandonment by God. Job does not mince his words or complaints. Most of us, when we pray and do not receive a favorable response, may the echo what Job says here. This is not to say Job had no reason for these feelings, of course, he did. What most of us under such circumstances tend to forget is that God may actually know what He’s doing. Perhaps one of the worst things the LORD can do is to give us what we want.
Job 29:1; 30:1-2, 16-31
