“Oh, that I knew where I might find Him!” (v3). Job wanted to see God and present “his case” before the Creator. He had great faith that if he could find God, “He would pay attention to me … I would be acquitted” (v7). But at present, “I do not perceive him” (v8). Job was in a fog of suffering. Despite this, he believed that God saw everything and would ultimately be fair.
“But He knows the way that I take; when He has tried me, I shall come out as gold” (v10). Our own vision may be clouded by confusion or exhaustion, but God sees us clearly, and He will carry us through.
