I can't help but wonder sometimes if God listens to our ramblings from up above and finds amusement in our nonsense. As readers of Job, we have the benefit of knowing why Job has faced such difficult life circumstances. Unfortunately for him, he thought that the adversity was a result of his own actions. The reality, however, is that his adversity was a result of an enemy trying to take Job from God's hand. It's really easy for me to forget that any enemy exists and that his desire is for me to be as far away from God as possible. Instead of realizing this truth, Job blames himself for the situation ("Teach me, and I will be silent; make me understand how I have gone astray" – 6:24) and his friend Bildad affirms Job in this misunderstanding. The reality is that we do have an enemy, and Jesus says in John 10:10 that he comes to steal, kill and destroy. With that in mind, it would be to our advantage to stay on the lookout.
I like the way this reading ends with Job's remarks about our inability to understand the workings of God. We can learn of God's character by studying His Word, but we will never fully understand the entirety of Him because we are but the creation. What creation is more intelligent than the one who created it? In my estimation: none.
