    Sermon- Job and Peter

    Text- Job 8



    When it comes to the ability to know joy in the midst of challenging and unfamiliar circumstances, the presence of God changes my perspective.




    Job 8:8 "For inquire, please, of the former age

    , And consider the things discovered by their fathers; 


    1 Peter 1:18-19- knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition

    from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 


    1Pe 4:12 Beloved, do not think it strange

    concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 


    Psalm 73:17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end. 




    When I consider the more “unfamiliar” experiences of my life, perhaps I have come to believe some misguided thoughts about the purpose of suffering and difficult circumstances.  Perhaps I:

    • Believe that if enough time passes it will take care of itself
    • Believe that it is not possible to have joy in the midst of trials- I just bear through it
    • See that only certain types of people can have joy in trials, but not me
    • Look to the Bible for answers, but nothing more than just a brief glance at a verse
    • Have found that I feel a lot better to just vent- so I might throw it out on social media

    • What are some difficult circumstances in my life right now?
    • How have I been responding to those circumstances?
    • What are some specific ways that I can practice entering into the presence of God in response to those experiences?
