Job 3:25 ” What I fear has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me.”

The image of Job sitting among the ashes scrapping his painful sores…his mind reeling from all the devastating losses, vividly displays his experience of both physical suffering and spiritual desolation. But yet, as overwhelmed as he was, Job never lost sight of the goodness of God. But for the wicked, there is another kind of dread…their fear being God’s punishment and righteous judgment which is inevitable for all who reject Him. “What the wicked dreads will overtake him.” (Proverbs 10:24) Fear is the common denominator…whether saved or lost, but for the Believer we have the foundational truth of Romans 8:31, “But if God is for us, who can be against us?” Yes, we may have affliction and fear come into our lives…but we have the gift of grace and the work of Christ as He intercedes on our behalf to fall back on and put our trust in.
