A Confused Confidence (Job 13:6–14:22)

The Bible is filled with accounts of believers who illustrate the faith of the distraught father, “Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24). It is perplexing that believers can sometimes be confident and yet not confident at the same time. We might call this a confused confidence. This describes Job in the text before us, which we will consider under the following headings: 1. Job Confident: Lord, I Believe! (13:6–28) A. A Confident Rebuke (13:6–12) B. A Confident Resolve (13:13–19) C. A Confident Request (13:20–28) 2. Job not so Confident: Lord, Help My Unbelief (14:1–22) A. Disturbed by Depravity (14:1–6) B. Discouraged by Mortality (14:7–12) C. Delighted by Immortality (14:13–17) D. Depressed by Futility (14:18–22)

Scripture References: Job 14:1-22, Job 13:6-28
