June 10 "Multiplying Words" Job 32-34

To his sin he adds rebellion;
    scornfully he claps his hands among us
    and multiplies his words against God.” Job 34:37
Elihu accuses Job of multiplying his words against God, adding to his rebellion.  Can we question God?  Can we do it in such a manner of meekness?  God is not the delivery man nor the traffic copy nor our kindly grandfather.  Yet Job's friends reduced him to size---reduced the role of God to fit their answers.  You see, suffering with definition and explanation gives you control---a false hope of control.  Suffering with no definition, no explanation, is where we find our faith in God.  May we listen well in suffering.
