Job replied, "I have heard many things like these; you are miserable comforters, all of you!"
When you pass through different trials in this earthly Christian life of yours, you may rarely find people who really care for you. In fact, the numbers won't be too hard to count on your fingers. Some would be like Job's friends who showed they had great concern, but ended up giving him advice by the barrels; advice that he did not need. He wanted someone who would listen to what he had to say in his misery, but could find none. Even nowadays it's difficult to find listeners, there are more of advisers. And when people hear your woes, there will be many who will immediately say, "We will be praying for you", but there will be few who would faithfully do it. Also it's rare to hear someone ask, "What shall I pray for you?"
You may not be wanting prayers from all, perhaps a few kind words, that's all.....but you will find most saying, "We will be praying" and that would include idol worshippers too and you would be caught in a situation where you cannot say, "Please don't pray", for that would be snobbish, so you keep quiet and suffer silently.
Trials in the Christian believer's life can bring the best and worst of emotions as we see in the life of Job. It will be like playing on a see-saw; an up and down faith game. One day, there's faith that God will deliver; another day, depression and sadness, wondering where God is or why the delay in deliverance. You are not alone though...
The Apostle Peter writes,
1 Peter 5:8-10
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings and the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
So hang in there...don't give up.
