Job (Program #11) – The Third of the Three Rounds (4) – Job’s Final Speaking (2)
Job chapter 29 brings us to a scene that most of us can relate very well to. At this point in the book, Job is once again pouring out to his friends concerning the terrible sufferings that God had visited upon him. And in this discourse, he was reliving many of the fond recollections of the glories of his past experience. How often do we dwell in the past when we are languishing in the depths of our present despair? But Job was also drawing upon his past successes in order to build a defense so that he could plead his case before God. A case that was totally built upon his own righteousness.
