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

Job knew a thing or two about affliction and adversity…he also knew his God well. But that didn’t stop the confusion and distress he endured in the middle of his suffering. Job likened it to God heaping stones up in a wall before him, blocking him from moving…a barrier preventing him from escaping his torment. Isaiah 59:9 laments about this, “Justice is far from us, and righteousness doesn’t reach us. We look for light, but all is darkness; for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.” We will all go through times of suffering when the way ahead is cloaked in obscurity and God seems far away, but if we continue to stand on His Word, He promises His light will illuminate the darkness.
