Message of the Day: We May Suffer Now, But Soon We Will Be Exalted
“God thunders marvelously with his voice; he does great things which we cannot comprehend. For he says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’; likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of his strength.” (Job 37: 5-6, NKJV)
Job had suppressed his three friends. Elihu was mad at them because they falsely accused Job. He was angry with Job too because as the discourse wanes, Job increasingly was intent on justifying himself. Now it was Elihu’s turn to deliver his opinion. He correctly points out that Job is coming very close to accusing God of being unjust.
He believes he has all the answers to job’s questions, and he will now answer Job on God’s behalf (Job 37:5-6). Surely, God punishes the evil, but he does not disdain all those who suffer. We may suffer now, but soon we will all be exalted.
