Job 7:17-18 (KJV) Job – A Picture Of Us All

Job 7:17-18 (KJV)
What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?
King David expresses nearly the same sentiment but from a completely different perspective. David marveled that God cared. Job complained for the same reason.
It is the nature of the fallen man to desire to be left alone. He is happy to accept good things from God, of course, but he despises that which transforms and recreates him.
  • He would rather eat and grow fat than suffer without and to put the body in stress. 
  • He would rather accept the easy path than to work the mind to find a higher path. 
  • He would rather believe a teacher that to do the research to prove the teacher right or wrong. 
  • He would rather ease his way into heaven than to obey and receive an abundant entrance into the presence of God.
Job pictures each of us in that he would have preferred to not be perfected. His account teaches that God is not satisfied with non-growing Christians and that He will not suffer it to be so.
Growth can only happen through testing.
