Job 36

"Look God is all-powerful. Who is a teacher like him? No one can tell him what to do. No one can say to him, "you done wrong."v 22-23

God always has a plan for us, he knows what is going to happen. He wants to show us what is right, even if we are suffering God is looking out for us, He will show us what is right. You can not say God is unfair, if He makes us suffer it is because we have done wrong and God will show us right.

"Those who have wicked hearts hold on to anger. Even when God punishes them they do not cry out for help... But God saves those who suffer through their suffering; He gets them to listen through their pain. God is gently calling you from the jaws of trouble to an open place of freedom where He has set your table full of the best food." v13-16

I love this. It reminds me of a garden, we must undergo the plow (suffering) and avoid hard heartedness, but the "jaws" of the plow turn up softened soil ready for abundant planting.

We are not just called to suffer for wrong we have done, we are called to suffer because suffering produces good and fertile soil in our lives leading to growth and abundance.
