Job 40:3-4 (NJKV) 3 Then Job answered the Lord and said: 4 “Behold, I am vile; What shall I answer You? I lay my hand over my mouth.
It’s funny how tough, uncomfortable situations can show us who we are and what we’re made of.
Times of trial can squeeze us, putting pressure on us and causing us to act in ways that aren’t always pretty.
When we get squeezed, stuff comes out; nasty stuff that we’d rather not see or have others see.
Look at what happened to Job when he was going through his time of trouble.
At first, he played it very cool. He sat quietly and chose his words carefully.
But as time went on, he began to share what was really inside. And it wasn’t pretty at all.
Ultimately, he railed against God and demanded an audience with Him so he could proclaim his innocence.
You see, Job was getting squeezed. And the more he got squeezed, the more he got to see himself. And he didn’t like what he saw.
In the end, God spoke to Job and reprimanded him for his attitude and his behavior.
And Job repented. Why? Because he saw that who he was displeased God. And he was also displeased with himself.
He had acted foolishly, and it made him ashamed.
But you see, when Job repented, God forgave him and blessed him.
Let us learn from Job. Let’s take what he learned and put it to work in our own lives, so when we get squeezed, we don’t do the same things he did.
Let God lead. He will bring us through the trials in ways that we can’t do ourselves.
