But they’re turned against you. You are now on the lowest rung of the ladder. Can’t go any further down. At one time you were further ahead than everyone else. Now they’re so much further up that you can’t even see them anymore.
When Job was at his lowest, he cried out to God – and there was silence. He felt as if God was looking at him in his misery, but with no response.
“God has cast me into the mire, and I have become like dust and ashes. I cry to you for help and you do not answer me; I stand and you only look at me” (Job 30:19-20).
In spite of all this, Job remains faithful. He knew that God sees. He notices Job’s misery is not out of God’s sight.
