"In our ashes...we allow Satan to plant the seed of doubt that: God could have saved us and He didn't - He could have been there and He wasn't. We find ourselves consumed with disappointment and waging war in a fight for our faith." (pg. 54)
Our perceived "lack of action" on God's part, assaults our faith and makes us feel that God is indifferent to our trials instead of understanding that he is allowing them for reasons of his own. He does not always share his reasons with us, but we do know that he understands our questions and wants us to come to him with them.
Just as in Job's situation, the author reminds us that God wants communication with us.
"Nothing that you're feeling or saying will shock or surprise Him. Don't overlook the fact that in the book of Job, God also revealed to us that He's a good listener! Not once did He interrupt Job in all the chapters of Job's conversation with Him. God waited to speak...when Job was finished talking. Only when Job was silent, did God's silence come to an end." (pg. 279)
Heavily backed by Scripture, the author addresses many human emotions that accompany suffering: Hopelessness, despair, anger, un-forgiveness and doubt, and encourages the reader to find answers in God's Word.Read more ›
I found myself looking at my own life and paralleling it with Job's. Although my situations were different I was able to identify with Job's thoughts and actions. After reading the book I felt that situations I'd forgotten about were buried and needed to be dealt with. This book helped.
To get the most out of the book I read a little at a time. Thought and meditated about the material - how it made me feel, the lessons I needed to learn, and made notes for myself. I certainly felt "refreshed" after reading the book and plan to reread it again to learn more.
