Day 242 – August 30, 2021
Scriptures – Psalm 25, Job 13-14
Psalm 25:21 ‘May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord, is in you.”
This is the content of Job’s argument with God. “Show me my sin.” The operable idea here is that Job is blameless and thus, shouldn’t be going through the suffering. He makes his case, “Show me the wrong, and I can understand the punishment. But I have lived an upright life. Why am I going through this?”
We aren’t sure why he is suffering.
But as we turn to Psalm 26, we open our hearts to its counsel and wisdom.
Psalm 25:19–20 - “See how numerous are my enemies and how fiercely they hate me! 20 Guard my life and rescue me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.”
Let’s take refuge in the Lord, our Savior Jesus Christ.
