约伯的试炼 [Job’s Test]

书卷:约伯记(旧约)
作者:约伯

约伯记23章8节:“只是我往前行,祂不在那里;往后退,也不能见祂。”
约伯记23章9节:“祂在左边行事,我却不能看见;在右边隐藏,我也不能见祂。”
约伯记23章10节:“然而祂知道我所行的路,祂试炼我之后,我必如精金。”

今日默想:约伯四处寻找上帝,却是徒然。甚至是在彷佛没有上帝而独行时,約伯仍勤勉地追随上帝的步履。虽然约伯似乎找不到上帝,他仍相信上帝知道他所行的路,并对他存有旨意。约伯认识到自己不是在受惩罚或委屈,而是受试炼,在炉子里炼成精金。

Book: Job (Old Testament)
Author:Job

Job 23:8 :“Look, I go forward, but He is not there, and backward, but I cannot perceive Him;”
Job 23:9 :“When He works on the left hand, I cannot behold Him; when He turns to the right hand, I cannot see Him.”
Job 23:10 :“But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.”

Today’s Meditation: Job failed to search for God everywhere. Job still pursued after the trail of God even in the sitation that seemed to be without God. Although Job could not find God, he still believed that God knew the way that He took and the way was meant in God’s will. Job realised that he was being tested instead of being punished or facing grievance. He knew that the test will make him come forth as gold.
