C. S. Lewis said "Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at Least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage."  As we approach the amazing book of Job, I present to you 3 heroes; 3 brave knights that can accompany you along any painful path... whether that path is right now, or in days to come.

God can deliver miraculously and physically, but more often His deliverance is eternal and Spiritual; accomplished at the cross of Christ.  Are you OK with that?  Is your faith and trust in God strong enough to trust Him even if He does not grant you what seems just and comfortable for you at the time?  Is the will of God more desirable to you than your temporal deliverance?

God is never mentioned in the book of Esther; but He is always at work in spite of and amidst the mess!

God is totally and passionately willing to make us uncomfortable in order to build our faith.  Such was the case for the exiles returning to Judah and Jerusalem.  But alas, even the attention getter of judgment and exile has no remedy for a dead heart.  The Messiah and His Kingdom were absent; and the returning exiles, minus idolatry, can still not keep covenant with God.

Assurance of salvation is about perseverance.  This is a major theme in the New Testament.  Who are the saved?  The saved are those who persevere.  But how does fainting intersect with persevering?  We all faint at times.  Does this mean I may or may not be saved?

Psalm 142 -- David has been anointed as the next king of Israel.  Yet he is running for his life from King Saul.  When the blessings of God lead through paths of difficulty and trouble, it can make one spiritually faint.  How can we keep the spiritual blood flowing into our spiritual brain so we don't pass out?  Feeling faint does not equal failure.  God uses fainting to build humble faith and strength!

Jesus came to earth FOR US.  He came to live for us.  He came to die for us.  He came to free us!  Do you want to be free?  What does that mean?

Jesus came, not just for the world, but for God!  And He spoke of this reason many times, and He reveals much about the character and nature of God in what He said, as well as what He did and does!  Knowing these things about God, revealed by Jesus, challenges us to the core and calls us to draw near!

In Jesus own words, He came for revelation.  Jesus came to reveal to us the Father; to reveal to us truth.  How are we to respond to His revelation?

The gospels contain at least 13 passages where Jesus communicates why He came to to be with us.  Some of His reasons will shock you and very much challenge you.  The first reason; Jesus came for division.
