WWW dewberry baptistclarksbridgecom you're asking what are you eating? Well, I'm eating a little bit of humblepie. Earlier this year I told someone DallasCowboys are going to win it all this year, didn't even come close, so I'm eating some humble pie. You everdone that.

Have you ever spoken off and saidsomething and only later come back and realiz o shouldn't have said that winbe eating a little, humble pie on that one yeah. We all do that athletes. Doit, though, stand there before a game and they'll talk about how they'regoing to we end they'll blut out something, and then they end up losingbadly and they've got that Humble Bot. Well, Jobe had such humble bie he hadto eat some of his words Aur raiting for the days Joe Eleven throughthirteen and we're going to look specifically at jol thirteen versusthree through ninety. So I'm going to read that and as I read that I want youto think about the end of job- we're not there yet, but those of Youh'veread it before. I want you to think about it because we're going to betalking about some words, a jobe will eventually be eating, but I would speak to the old almightand I desire to argue with God,...

Tu Mer with lives. You are allworthless, positians speaking to his priams. Oh, that you would completely be Silen,then, would become your wisdom. Please hear my argument and listen tothe contentions of my limbs. Well, you speak what is unjust for God and speak.What is deceitful for him? Will you show partiality for God? Will youcontemn, for God? Will it be well when he examines you for will you to see them as onedeceives a man, he will surely Repue reprove you if yousece secretly sho portiality. Well, a e, His Majesty terrify you and the dreadof Ham foll on you, immemoriable sayings are proverbs ofashes. Your defenses are defenses of claim, be silent before me, so that I mayspeak...

...then let come on me. What Mak? Why should I take my flesh in my teethand put my life in my hands though he slay me. I will open him. Nevertheless,I will argue my ways before hom. This also will be my self eacien for agodless. Mayan may not come before his presence. Listen carefully to my speechand let my declaration feel your vears behold. Now I have prepared my case. Iknow I will be vindicated. Who Will Contan with me for the N I would be so and even not job is coming to realize that Goddoesn't feet in his locks. God is not the Formula God Joe Thought. If I pray, if I see God's place, if I am faithfulto God, then God will bless me...

...financially. God will bless mephysically. God will bless me in this line. You and I ought not Argu that if wepray read our Bible go to church, give to God obey scripture and live purelythen God will bless us physically. Then God will bless US financialy. Then Godwill bless us in this world. Such would be a foolish foolish argument. Such foolishness stands in startcontrast to the lives of Joea Joseph Daniel Steven Izaah, and so manyothers, such a small view of God, is betrayedby reality. Jokes friends, they still have God in aboxs as job refer sponds to his friends tocorrect their God in a box view...

...he is speaking to God also, and God is still remaining Sien from chapter two God's been Si andJones, not just speaking to his friends hes speaking to God, also- and God is still silent. Job Wants to speak directly with God bythe way he will get his wish. Because listening to the, if you dothis, then God will do that. Dribble has become very tiresome for Jo, don't never do that, don't ever say! Well, if you go tochurch- and God will do this gods- not nown to do things. God's bound to bless us according tohis word, as we faithfully obey his work, but he doesn't say Haw, he doesn't say. If you do this, then bygoing to church I'll bless you physically I'll bless you financiall.The blessings may be forand greater...

...than such, and so don't go down thatdribble. That Jones friends, wit Nai, but IM jobes desire for conversationwith God. Jobe invites God to accuse him of Throng. God will accept that challenge and hewill do so. Job Sann, as will see through the endof Jobe, is that jobe question, the goodness of God. Job Sin wasn't that he had donesomething evil. It wasn't that he in fact, we have no account of Jobesenuntil the trial and it's in the trial that job seeit job sends in the trial, because hebegins to question the goodness of God. God. How can you be good? And let thishappen to me how dearly blasting God by questioninghis goodness? That's a set? It's okay to say God. Idon't understand this God. I wish I...

...knew why this was happening. God I'mmstruggling with why this is happening. It's not okay, to say God, you're notgood to let this happen, that's blass less God is good, he'salways good, and there was jolt Seeit Job dequint began questioning and histempretentl and is trying to get God's attention he began saying non. Are yougood? Surely a good God would allow this tohappen, and therein was Jobes SA it. Well, Joe, doesn't deny God at anypoint. He does wronglo accuse God of being not good and by the way, when you get to job chapter thirtyeight and you read there, stop and think. Isthere anywhere else in scripture? Wher, you see God lecturing someone for thatBotlem?...

Is there anywhere else in descripture? Were you see, God lecturing anindividual for chapters no joe receives the longest lecture in alla scripture of anyone from God the most righteous man on the face ofthe Earth at the time receives the longest leter Whi, because he questioned God's goodness. Don't ever question God's goodness,it's okay to say what it's not okay, to say: God, you're not being good to letthis happen. Jones trial, Inh, heaven silence,pushes job in his desire to get God's attention he's to trying to risk it allhe's going to get God's attention. He says things he's going to regret, he'sgoing to eat some humble five, because he says things he shouldn't sayhe's trying to get that attention. You ever have a child do that...

...they just acked up in ways they shutnecked up because they're trying to get attention. That's what job is doing when God does finally address job'squestioning of his goodness jobs response is humble. Five. It's humility job is still struggling with the fear.He has become God's enemy. Somehow this just devastates him. He loves his Godand can imagine being the enemy of God. Such thoughts are emboed by heaven, silence, Joe even in essent sense. If God isright and I am wrong, then I promised to remain soent. Interestingly, when we get to the endof Joe God is right, Joe Bisrom and Jovan Sigb, just as he said it would be. He eatshis wordrs hes spouted off in his trial...

...for attention and when God finallyappears Joe Humbly eacs with words, don't ever ever ever question Gods, goodness, don't know what you're going through. Idon't know what Trialis your face, but here's what I know- God is good, nomatter what and when we go through trials, it'sokay to say: God I don't understand, I don't get it but you're good, that's right to say something like that.You don't understand. Ayhe went Frlli, you don't get it! That's that humanstruggle, but you're good, that's Fike, always know, God is parging. What say when I came when Icannot trace his hand, I'll trust, his Lart, and we can do that very well. Ourreading, for tomorrow is Joe chapter...

...fourteen through seventeen befor Wego.I want to Brin bother. We thank you again. We're justteaching US wonderful lessons through this book of Jilm and this life of Jolfather help us help us d, Vayouwereandall, theijesus,name Wek. Thank you for Joininu.
