“Man who is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble.” 

Job 14:1 | NKJV

“Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.”

Psalms 51:5 | NKJV

The Hebrew word used most often for “iniquity” means “guilt worthy of punishment.” Iniquity is sin at its worst. Iniquity is premeditated, continuing, and escalating. When we flirt with sin, we fall for the lie that we can control it. But like a cute baby monkey can grow to be a wild, out-of-control primate, sin that seems small and harmless at first can take control before we know it. When we give ourselves over to a sinful lifestyle, we are committing iniquity. Sin has become our god rather than the Lord (Romans 6:14).

“For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, And what I dreaded has happened to me. 26 I am not at ease, nor am I quiet; I have no rest, for trouble comes.”

Job 3:25-26 | NKJV

“Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” 10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.”

1 Chronicles 4:9-10 | NKJV

Names identify facts. Faith forges forward in spite of the facts.

35 She became pregnant a final time and had a fourth son. She said, “This time I’ll praise God.” So she named him Judah (Praise–God). Then she stopped having children.

Genesis 29:35 | MSG

1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. 2 “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher; “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” 3 What profit has a man from all his laborIn which he toils under the sun? 4 One generation passes away, and another generation comes;But the earth abides forever. 5 The sun also rises, and the sun goes down,And hastens to the place where it arose.6 The wind goes toward the south, And turns around to the north; The wind whirls about continually,And comes again on its circuit. 7 All the rivers run into the sea,Yet the sea is not full; To the place from which the rivers come, There they return again. 8 All things are full of labor; Man cannot express it. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, Nor the ear filled with hearing. 9 That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun. 10 Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? It has already been in ancient times before us.11 There is no remembrance of former things, Nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come by those who will come after.

Ecclesiastes 1:1-11 | NKJV
