Job 4:6 Should not your piety be your confidence and your blameless ways your hope?
To anyone who’s ever watched the movie Ben Hur, or any other film which depicted the use of chariots as weapons of warfare one might then understand the Psalm (27:7) that says, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”
In our highlighted verse above the “friends” of Job, supposedly commiserating in his despair and loss are basically telling him to stop complaining and asking all of his “Why” questions. They seem to figure that even our “good behavior” and faith avail nothing in this world and that we must just accept our lot in life. This is not true. Men were made to hope, but far too frequently that hope is diverted into tracks that almost always end in some sort of loss, failure, or injury. This is true in business, work, relationships, nations, and ideas. There is only one original idea, only one hope that is legitimate, that does not fail, that points the way to overcoming this world. His name is Jesus. He is the Christ, the messiah, the savior deliver sent from God, one with God, and able to deliver us even from ourselves if we but ask him. Everything else is a chasing after the wind. John 16:33 33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
