That’s What Friends Are For?

Job 16:2 (NKJV) page 835

I have heard many such things; miserable comforters are you all!

2021 HAS REMINDED US THAT LIFE IS NOT EASY.

  • News Flash! – We live in a “” world.
  • Satan wars against man with his power.

Ephesians 2:2 (NKJV) page 1996

…in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air,

  • The result is real .
  • Job keeps a that is so difficult:

Job 1:21 (NKJV) page 820

Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

    1. He over what he lost;
    2. He is for what he had.

IF WE ALL HAD AN ELIHU…

Job 32:2-3 (NKJV) page 853

Then the wrath of Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, was aroused against Job; his wrath was aroused because he justified himself rather than God. Also against his three friends his wrath was aroused, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.

  • In times of crisis, your friends are not always .
  • He doesn’t get from his wife. (2:10)
  • He doesn’t get from his friends. (16:2)
  • What makes me a miserable friend?
    1. They started out great!
    2. Don’t for who has/had it worst;
    3. Don’t draw the lines between and ;
    4. Don’t be so that you think you know the “purpose”.
  • Pray for an Elihu – one who and you enough to tell you the truth.

WHAT WILL YOU TAKE WITH YOU FROM THIS TRIAL?

Job 13:20–22 (NKJV) page 832

Only two things do not do to me, then I will not hide myself from You: Withdraw Your hand far from me, and let not the dread of You make me afraid. Then call, and I will answer; or let me speak, then You respond to me.

  • There is nothing you will ever go through .
  • God is my , not my Enemy.
  • It is never to dark or late to !

Matthew 26:39 (NKJV) page 1647

He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”
