Job 13:15–16 – “I will surely defend my ways to his face. Indeed, this will turn out for my deliverance, for no godless person would dare come before him!”
Job had the audacity to argue his case before the LORD.
He is irritated by his friends offering dead platitudes and proverbs of ashes that he needed to repent more and try harder on behalf of the living God.
the amazing truth.
Job says even though God will slay me I will hope in God.
God will bring an end to our self striving, sin enslaved wriggling spiritual corpse.
No person without God would dare to appeal to God and let their God-denying self be slated. Rather rant and rail and flee from in terror, the person of God has the audacity to confront God only to be confronted. Only children who belong to the Father will have the audacity to whine and complain to the Father who loves them and recognize God will judge us in his righteousness AND – wait for it – and set us free from sin, make us his own and cause us to know and love the Son. (John 8:33-47)
