Text: Job 19:23-27; 23:10
But he knows the way that I take; when he has tried me, I shall come out as gold. My foot has held fast to his steps; I have kept his way and have not turned aside. (Job 23:10-11)
When does Job expect this vindication?
(Read Job 19:23-27)
Whom I shall see for myself - It will not come to be by mere report. I shall not merely hear of the decision of God in my favor, but I shall myself behold him. He will at length come forth, and I shall be permitted to see him, and shall have the delightful assurance that he settles this controversy in my favor, and declares that I am his friend. Job was thus permitted to see God Job 42:5, and hear his voice in his favor. He spake to him from the whirlwind Job 38:1, and pronounced the sentence in his favor which he had desired. (Albert Barnes, e-Sword.net)
1. We must avoid thinking of God is human terms, or reducing His ways to a set of laws.
2. The proper relationship with God is a relationship of faith, and the proper response to God in all circumstances is worship (Job 1:20)
