: “Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.” - Job 5:6, 7.
COMMENT: Having been born into and surrounded by troubles, as a result of inherited sin man is surrounded by troubles difficulties which, from time to time, make him to be restless or disturbed. (Genesis 3:16-19; Psalm 51:5; etc.) Knowledge of the spiritual cause of the troubles in the world should inform our attitude to the various problems that confront us daily. While not discounting the efforts of governments all over the world in tackling these problems, the fact remains that God Almighty is the strength and hope of His people. He is the One people should look to in order to get relief from the hard conditions in the world. They should therefore do His will and always exercise faith in Him Who “is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”. - Psalm 46:1.
