The following sermon was preached by Rev. Calum I. Macleod at the Wednesday night prayer meeting on the 19th August, 2009. Job was a man who suffered greatly. He could not rejoice in the Lord; for he felt that God was hiding His face and withdrawing from him. The view of his friends is that Job must have been a great sinner. But, it is not true that every case of suffering is the consequence of some particular sin. Do you wonder where The Lord is in your life? Job’s view of God’s sovereignty mingled with his sufferings gave him a wrong view of God. He is troubled, afraid and perplexed, but he continues in faith, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him”. A word for the downcast and afflicted soul; “when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”
The text is Job23:3… Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat! I would order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.
Oh that I knew where I might find him!
