Falsely Accused

If you really want to appear superior to me and would use my disgrace as evidence against me; then understand that it is God who has wronged me. Job 19:5-6 HCSB

Early in the investigation, there were four innocent people accused of being responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings. Because of a knee-jerk, information-hungry media, four people were falsely accused as being suspects.

In these verses God is falsely accused as being the enemy of Job. It was Satan who was Job’s enemy. The facts show that God was actually a friend of Job. He admired Job. Job was pointing his finger and blaming God for his misgivings and problems. It was common for people to think that both good and bad came from God. They also thought that people were responsible for the problems that came into their lives. The evil that is in our world is responsible for the majority of the pain and suffering that people experience.

Challenge: It is easy to blame God when difficulties come your way. Remember that all evil comes from Satan and that God is a God of love and compassion. He desires only the best for you. Thank God in both the good and bad times of life. Be careful not to falsely accuse others. Make sure you are pointing your accusing finger at the appropriate person(s).
