Job 30:1-31


OVERVIEWAfter remembering the past, Job laments the present.

BIG IDEAThe good old days are often a combination of a bad memory and a good imagination.—Warren Wiersbe

KEY VERSEPsalm 77:11
But then I recall all you have done, O Lord; I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago.

People mock you. I also have been ridiculed and verbally abused. You are tired and hungry. Remember, I am the source and bread of life. You’ve been cast aside and banished. I, too, have been discarded and forgotten. Others detest you and spit on you. You are not alone. I also had that experience. You are overwhelmed and afraid. I am a strong tower. Run to me.

You may feel forgotten, but I am with you. Despite all you are experiencing, I am protecting you from so much more. I am providing the little you have. But I can and want to give so much more. Everything is for a season. Good feelings don’t last forever, and bad ones don’t have to, either. There will be a day when there will be no pain or tears, but until then be comforted in my presence. Turn to me and listen for my instruction. Rest in me and follow me.

Are you overwhelmed or troubled? Remember how God has proven himself faithful in the past and ask God to do it again. Choose to trust him in your circumstances today.
