We Know Truth


Job was getting an earful from his friends. They were coming up with reasons as to why he was going through his trials. They were blaming him of sin. They were giving their opinion as if it were fact. 

In the midst of all of this Job says to them that he just wants to hear from God. He wants to only be judged by him. He knows his own heart. He knows God knows his heart. In that he can find comfort. 

Later when Job stands before God he is found acceptable. When the friends were judged they were reprimanded for speaking falsely to Job. 

People’s opinions can be harsh. They can be presented as facts–even when they’re untrue. But we know the truth and answer to God alone, who is Truth. Remember that when you are falsely accused. Keep walking blamelessly.

Scripture found:

Job 23 & 42 

Blameless

Ephesians 1:4

“He tried to take advantage of me!!! I screamed and begged him not to and he finally ran away!!” Potiphar’s wife painted a vivid picture for her husband and his men of what had transpired between herself and Joseph, all the while holding Joseph’s garment.

Potiphar left in an outrage. He sentenced Joseph to jail time.

Joseph, an innocent man, would spend two years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit.

Sometimes things we say or do are misinterpreted. Sometimes people just try to do us wrong in whatever way they can.

God knows this will happen. He also knows that it’s out of our control. So He tells us to be blameless and He’ll take care of the rest.

Take comfort that He is a just Judge, that He knows the truth and that He has the final word.
