I nearly nearly nearly nearly skipped today’s post to post another interesting thing I stumbled across, but I dare not. Lol..
Friends like Bildad the Shuhite…
Bildad calls Job a Hypocrite. Now, Bildad is a Christian. When you tend to be faithful to God, committed to your purpose and very diligent in your service to God, to your church, friends like Bildad see you to be a Hypocrite. Their definition of Faithfulness is Hypocrisy.
They call you a Hypocrite to your face, they rub it right on you.
When you act on kindness, you are a hypocrite, when you extend a generous hand,you are being a hypocrite. Christian friends like Bildad simply cannot tell the difference between Faithfulness and Hypocrisy. They don’t know it
Friends like Bildad seek answers both from God and any other form of magic. They are Christians. They know God is great and powerful , he gives answers to mysteries, other forms of magic also provide answers to mysteries, by themselves they go to all kinds of strange places in search of answers. They can go to a church just for answers but not to worship or fellowship. Anything that can give them answers, or miracle they will believe in it.
Friends like Bildad judge people by comparing themselves to them
Bildad compared himself to Job, he told Job that he is more prosperous and famous than Job today because he has not sinned but Job has sinned that’s why he is suffering.
Friends like Bildad feel superior by pointing all of your shortcomings. They feel superior to you just by telling you how much of a failure you are and they are not.
Bildad told Job how unwise he is because he is not heeding to the counsel he and Eliphaz have been giving him.
When you stand your ground for Christ and refuse to absolutely stop trusting Jesus for one second, they think you are unwise. They simply don’t understand Faithfulness.
Friends like Bildad make you feel you cannot reach out to God in your trying times, they try to make you believe God doesn’t want to hear from you which is a big fat lie. God is yearning to hear you talk to him all the time, no time limit, no time zone, free access, no WiFi needed lol, no bundle, no airtime, no network problems,absolutely free.
Even when you encourage your self little by little, friends like Bildad belittle you.
When you dreams are big and they sometimes scare you, they make you feel you don’t have what it takes to accomplish it. Another big fat lie. What God has put in each and everyone what it takes to accomplish anything at all our mind can think of.
Unlike Eliphaz who blamed Job for the death of his children, Bildad blamed Job’s children for their own death. They just love to play blame games.
Continue being faithful, continue to serve,in your local church,at your office,keep on being faithful. No Bildad can ever stop you from being a faithful servant
