S.S. SUPERINTENDENT'S CORNER: Lesson #7: Defiant Faithfulness Lesson focus: God brings justice how and when he chooses. Lesson’s Scriptures: Job 24:1, 9-12, 19-25
Being Honest With God!!!! Many Christians have been trained to "be nice" in relationships, especially in their relationship with God. That means saying "nice" prayers as well. But the account of Job, including his candid statement about the presence of injustice in the world, indicates that God likely prefers honesty to etiquette. Therefore; in prayer, we might need to become willing to lay down our dainty spoons of nice prayers and pick up a dirty shovel of gut-level honesty. Perhaps the only thing we have to lose is our dignity. However, living authentically with God is more than worth a bit of humiliation.
Job relationship with God enables us to see how responsive God is to our heartfelt concerns. In Job’s affliction; he had questions, he was confused, and he felt ignored by God. We too can dialogue honestly with God. He's not shocked at our emotions; and He's not waiting to punish us. Instead, He wants us to tell Him what is on our hearts and minds.
