Job 30 - The Bad New Days

LINK: Job 30

BACKGROUND 

Job has just reminisced about the "Good Old Days." In Job 30, he has to face the reality of the "Bad New Days" of the present! He contrasts his past with his present by lamenting that he has . . .

  • No respect (30:1-15 contrasted with 29:7-11) 
  • No blessing (30:16-23 contrasted with 29:2-6) 
  • No help (30:24-25 contrasted with 29:12-17) 
  • No future (30:26-28 contrasted with 29:18-20) 
  • No ministry (30:29-31 contrasted with 29:21-25) 
There is no REFLECTION or APPLICATION today. 

Just keep reading!

PRAYER

Lord, help us, like Jesus, to learn obedience in the things that we suffer (Hebrews 5:8). Amen.
