Job has been tested twice. He has not blamed God for this trouble, but now curses the day he was born. This the reply of his friend Eliphaz...
For distress does not grow out of the soil,
and trouble does not sprout from the ground.
But mankind is born for trouble
as surely as sparks fly upward.
However, if I were you, I would appeal to God
and would present my case to Him.
He does great and unsearchable things,
wonders without number.
Job 5:6-9 HCSB
Job's friend expresses his advice to make a plea to God, and details not only great and unsearchable things of God, but how infinite they are in number. If like Job, we would but consider His limitless supply, even if we only count those seen within our lifetime. If we would but ponder the vast resources He has created since before time began, and those yet to come long after we are gone.
That alone should baffle the mind... how can we possibly only want for more, when we are so unaware of all He has already done? Let us not show ungratefulness to the unlimited Provider, by asking for something new today. Rather let us issue forth praise, honor, glory and worship... empty and open hands offering our nothing, confessing our troubles and receiving grace once more.
