Job 22:1 to Job 31:40
At this point in the narrative, Job has suffered the loss of everything—his family, wealth, and health—and endured the advice and accusations of his wife and friends Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar.
Despite it all, Job continued to maintain his innocence. Take special note of Job’s thorough examination of his own behavior in 31:1–40.
With all the charges leveled at Job, what should we believe about his character? God told Satan, “No one in the world is like him! He is a man of integrity: He is decent, he fears God, and he stays away from evil” (Job 1:8 and 2:3). What God thinks about us matters more than what others say.
Today, confess your sins to God and ask his forgiveness, so that you will have nothing to hide.
