For I know that my Redeemer lives, And He shall stand at last on the earth. Job 19.25

In chapter 19 of his book, Job is sad and melancholic about the situations that occurred in his life, without knowing the reason, since the Scriptures described him as someone almost perfect: There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil. (Job 1.1). From one hour to another, everything changed and, not knowing what to say, he contended by faith, but God was his righteous Judge!

Job was made an example for those who fail to check how they live. Even though he was a counselor and friend to all, he didn’t notice fear entering his heart. Now, this is the part of man that nobody sees. As a result, the devil was allowed to touch him. Then Job saw his mistake and said: For the thing I greatly feared has come upon and what I dreaded has happened to me (Job 3.25). In the end, the Lord applied the expected justice to him.

Job’s friends were also wise, but they couldn’t help him because they spoke for themselves, using God’s words out of context. Therefore, their opinions would never make anyone react before his problem. We need to be in communion with Heaven in order to know which remedy to use for someone’s trouble. It’s not enough to quote the bare Word, because the Bible itself says that the letter kills (2 Corinthians 3.6).

In the midst of the pain, Job complained harshly about what his friends were talking about: I have heard many such things; miserable comforters are you all! (Job 16.2). If the Word comes from the Lord, it is like the balm of Gilead, but most of the time, thinking about helping, many add pain to those who don’t know or understand why bad things happen. Saved comforters should live before God.

When we feel from the Most High what to say and obey Him, even if the errand is small, the help is well accepted and will make us worthy to receive the reward for such an act, as Jesus declared: And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward. (Matthew 10.42). It is wonderful to minister and deliver the right counsel. The day of retribution will come (Revelation 22.12).

Christ said that whoever lives at His feet has chosen the better part: And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her (Luke 10.41,42). This is the part that was missing from Job’s wicked comforters. They tried to comfort the patriarch, but what came out of their mouths was not the heavenly message. Ask for a guard for your mouth (Psalm 141.3).

When Job got right with God, God rebuked his friends: And so it was, after the Lord had spoken these words to Job, that the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is aroused against you and your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has. Job (Job 42.7). It is good to be in the divine will, believing that our Redeemer lives to reward us and not to rebuke us.

In Christ, with love,

Lord of good counsels! Although we have a chance to be used by You, we have not consecrated ourselves as we should. We live more in the flesh, doing our own will than Yours. Help us! Then we will change the way we serve You!

Job did not give up his rights and, even without understanding what he was saying, he fought with all his strength to prevail against evil, and he succeeded. You will give us Your blessings, when we are in Christ and the words of Your mouth are in our mouths!

We must be comforters of truth, not accusers of non-existent error. Our will must be subject to Your will, for our work to be fruitful. May Your Holy Spirit always assist us in our listening, meditating and speaking. Amen!
