Reading along with us in Job? Here’s today’s reading:

Job 17 (ESV)

“My spirit is broken; my days are extinct;

Surely there are mockers about me,

  1. Not blaming God, but Job is dispairing…

    1 “My spirit is broken; my days are extinct;
    the graveyard is ready for me.
    2 Surely there are mockers about me,
    and my eye dwells on their provocation.

  2. It is unfortunate that Job has to keep talking about his desperation since no one else is identifying with him or with his trials. Once again how sad it is for Job to have to ask his friends to do better or to feel like he has more identification with death then he has with life.

    And Job, I have hope for you. It is in the God who will eventually answer. It is in the Messiah who will eventually come and give all who turn to Him a better hope and promise, a better and more secure relationship with God. A Messiah who will come with grace and truth and will provide a stronger covenant between us and God. Thank God we have a greater confidence as believers in Jesus!
