Job 1:22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

Everything was falling apart in Job’s life. He was literally watching everything he had go up in smoke. All would die but his wife. All of his wealth would be gone. His health would be gone, but Job never blamed God for any of it.

So often when things do not go like I want them to go I directly or indirectly blame God. I wonder why He is doing this to me or allowing it to happen. That is to blame Him foolishly. It rains on the just and the unjust. I am probably just needing someone to blame and falling into a major trap!

Have you had a problem blaming God for things that go wrong in your life? Is this verse a wake up call for both of us?
