Today's reading Job 25:1 - Job 41:34
" I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear; but now mine eyes seeth thee." Job 42:5 KJB
Job is in the midst of being put in his place by three of his friends. He is defending himself well. Finally, Elihu has a chance and he goes on and on about being young himself he is wiser than Job. I find it interesting that God does not even acknowledge Elihu when he is doling out punishment to the three friends.
Job hardly speaks when the Lord shows himself to him. All that Job had been taught, all that he had read and all the sacrifices he had done, the worship to God and it did not compare to the actual time when Job himself was confronted with God on a personal basis.
We can go through the motions. Maybe we have done this Christian thing all our lives. Maybe it is expected of us now. We are in our spots on Sunday and we even talk the talk and walk the walk.
Have you been confronted with the Lord God Almighty on a personal basis? Is He your God or still your parents' God? Have you seen for yourself what the Lord can do for you like Job just realized? Have your own walk with the Lord. Take the God of the Bible and make Him your God.
