Job 10:7



7 Thou knowest [da`ath] that I am not wicked [rasha`]; and there is none that can deliver [natsal] out of thine hand [yad]. KJV-Interlinear



7 'According to Thy knowledge I am indeed not guilty; Yet there is no deliverance from Thy hand. NASB



Job continues his rhetorical questions and statements in the form of an open prayer to God. In this, we can all learn about life, Jobs circumstances, and Gods policies toward man.


Job has previously confessed that he is a sinner. In fact, all of humanity is filled with sinners. There are none among us, that are not guilty of sins.


Nevertheless, here Job is making the distinction between those who belong to God, verses those who do not, between those who belong to God and are obedient to His will, and those who belong to God, but are disobedient.


One would suppose that anyone who belongs to God and leads a consistent life in obedience to Gods will, that, that person would have some inside advantage with God, and therefore be free from most if not all of the difficulties that exist in this world.


Anyway, that is how a lot of people see life. They go to church, they lead a nice life, they pray once in a while, and they pray for others. Then life hits them hard.


We have seen a lot of human suffering in these recent days, in the news. From storms, to accidents, to crime, and the many other things that are common in this world, many folks have suffered. Our world is a mixture of simultaneous happiness and sorrow.


But our world of today, is not heaven. We live in the devils world, and sorrow is more than common in life.


Job has already given deference to God in that God is omniscient, omnipresent, and knows quite a bit more about life and the details of life, than humanity. God does not look at life through the eyes of man. God knows not only the past and the present, but He knows the future, too.


Man can't even get the details of his past and present straight, let alone the future.


Job posses his position. He, Job is not perfect, but he is not like unbelievers, who are wicked by definition, nor is Job like other believers, who disregard Gods mandates for life, and are therefore wicked by means of their function in life.


And yet despite Jobs obvious 'better' status, he is still being subjected to massive suffering.


Well the answer is or should be clear to us all, but Job himself is going to provide us with the answer.
