Devotional Guide, Today’s Reading Wednesday, 20th March, 2024


Text: “But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” – Job 23:10.

Comment: In Job we learn the attributes of resilience and consistency. He enjoyed sundry benefits, ranging from, a stable family, abundance of wealth, protection all around him, etc., so that he saw no justifiable reason to turn against God or sin with his lips, during the hour of temptation. It was God’s directive that the flesh of the Passover lamb should be roasted with fire, “And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.” (Exodus 12:8) Ordinarily, meat roasted is sweeter than boiled meat. The eating of roasted meat with bitter herbs is a symbol of the fact that the believer who is dedicated to the service of God must be prepared to experience both sweet and bitter things in the onward march to the antitypical land of Canaan. (Philippians 4:11-13) As the apostles prayed, may God “Increase our faith.” See Luke 17:5.
