When God Comes Part 2

November 17, 2022

We were not created to bear the load of all the anxiety we carry. In the middle of his unpredictable suffering, Job heard the voice of God in a whirlwind. In this message, Job realized how he’d underestimated God and overestimated himself. If we’re going through unspeakable pain, we too must listen to God’s voice amid our anxious thoughts.

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

We would be astonished if God spoke directly to us. Earlier, Job had wished he could speak face to face with God, only to receive a dramatic answer from the Creator later. In this message, God engages Job with a series of rhetorical questions about His divine rule. Can we trust God’s heart even when we don’t understand His actions?

In many ways, God is too big for anyone to comprehend. The man Job, severely tested by the Almighty, found wisdom by discussing his plight with a young friend named Elihu. In this message, we hear three memorable truths about the hiddenness of God. Is God big enough to superintend our suffering?

We may never fully fathom the mystery of suffering. But tough questions must be dealt with in every generation. In this message, we’re introduced to Elihu who gave three passionate responses to his friend Job’s suffering. Unlike any other friend of Job, Elihu seemed to grasp how God can be trusted.

“When I die, will I live again?” Something deep inside of us cries out for eternity, to see beyond life’s brief problems. In this message, we interpret a vital insight from Job’s cry of hope while he sat in the dust. Even though Job could not see it at the time, he confidently believed a living Redeemer would come for us.

Some believe every desire of our hearts should be met—even though many longings are not or cannot be fulfilled. Job understood that there’s an infinite gap between God’s holiness and our sinful nature. In this message, we hear three cries from Job’s heart out of his alienation from God and his mortality. Who can meet our deepest longing?

Our souls cry out for an answer to our trials, especially when the burden seems unfair. Job’s anguish of soul did not lead him away from God but rather deepened his precious faith. In this message, we contemplate three effects suffering has on our faith. At the end of the day, will our faith stand the test?

No one is exempt from suffering in this life—not even believers. When the painful circumstances of life arise, depression falls upon the human soul. In this message, we hear four sighs of the soul from a depth of pain to which we all can relate. Why did Job feel God had abandoned him?

A friend can be of great help when we hear bad news. Yet when Job’s friends spoke, it revealed the limits of their human understanding. In this message, we define three errors Job’s friends made in the way they talked with him. Who is the best person to extend God’s comfort to those in distress?

Sometimes, well-meaning friends can do more harm than good. Job’s friends sat down with him in his pain. In this message, we’re introduced to three of Job’s comforters through their lengthy speeches—right in many ways yet limited in understanding. How might a friend go wrong when reflecting on God’s ways in suffering?
November 4, 2022
Sometimes, incredible turmoil breaks loose even upon godly people. Job’s great faith was sorely tested when he lost his children and his health. In this message, we reflect on three lessons for anyone facing the anguish of loss. When all has been taken from us, will we bless God or curse Him?
