Job Reference

“All my intimate friends detest me”.  Job 19:19

Job’s so-called friends and family fall into 3 categories:  those who gossip, those who judge, and those who avoid him.  His own wife hates even his breath!  If Job’s sole reference for reality was people, he’d be insane. But Job’s soul reference is God.  When we find ourselves in Job’s shoes (or ashes), will we trust that God is there too?  Our reference for all life’s pummeling is this:  “I know that my Redeemer lives and in the end He will stand upon the earth.” (Job 19:15)
