Job 19:8 ” He has blocked my way so I cannot pass; He has shrouded my paths in darkness.”

It’s part of life here on earth…trials, illness, and loss are inevitable.  Jeremiah 8:15 sums it up very well how  we can feel at these times, ” We hoped for peace but no good has come, for a time of healing but there was only terror.”  In these fearful, confusing times we long for the light at the end of the tunnel…but all we see is darkness.  “He has blocked my way so I cannot pass…”  In this verse, the Hebrew word for blocked is gadar – which means to build or heap up stones to make a wall.  We sometimes do feel walled in or blocked off… but know God may be also protecting you from unseen evil you know nothing about.  In those dark times, we need to put all our trust in the Lord and wait for the storm to pass.
