Today's Reading: Job 8

Please read Job 8 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Job 8:

"How long will you say such things? Your words are a bluster wind.,,When your children sinned against him, he gave them over to the penalty of their sin. But if you will look to God and plead with the Almighty, if you are pure and upright, even now he will rouse himself on your behalf and restore you to your rightful place." Job 8: 1, 3- 6

What I heard from Jesus today is: Does suffering means you are in sin?

Would you think like that? When someone got into trouble or got sick then you link it up with the punishment from God. Ah, there must be something wrong with you, if not this kind of thing won't happen to you. You better repent before it is too late.

One of the messages in the book of Job tells us that suffering may not relate to sin. It was not God's punishment to Job's seven sons and three daughters because they sinned. Disaster can happen without a reason. But, when that happen it would surely be a time of challenge to you of your relationship with God and your closest friends. When your friend in trouble what you need to do is to care, listen and love. And, pray for God's words and wisdom to help him or her to get through that crisis. Can you do that?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me not to judge but to care and love.
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
