Job 33

Wherefore, Job, I pray thee, hear my speeches, and hearken to all my words.

Behold, now I have opened my mouth, my tongue hath spoken in my mouth.

My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.

The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

If thou canst answer me, set thy words in order before me, stand up.

Behold, I am according to thy wish in God’s stead: I also am formed out of the clay.

Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid, neither shall my hand be heavy upon thee.

Surely thou hast spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words, saying,

I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me.

10 Behold, he findeth occasions against me, he counteth me for his enemy,

11 He putteth my feet in the stocks, he marketh all my paths.

12 Behold, in this thou art not just: I will answer thee, that God is greater than man.

13 Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters.

14 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,

17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

18 He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:

20 So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.

21 His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.

22 Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.

23 If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness:

24 Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

25 His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s: he shall return to the days of his youth:

26 He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.

27 He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

29 Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,

30 To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

31 Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I will speak.

32 If thou hast anything to say, answer me: speak, for I desire to justify thee.

33 If not, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I shall teach thee wisdom.

  1. Verses 29-30 MSG “This is the way God works. Over and over again He pulls our souls back from certain destruction so we’ll see the light—and live in the light!” Yes, the Lord’s mercy and grace brings us through many things; but, we must also do our part. In true repentance we are turning away from evil and doing our best to not go down the same path of destruction that we were on. 1 Peter 2:9-10 MSG says “But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.” 1 Peter 2:9 NLT ” But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests,[a] a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.”

  2. 4 The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
    5 If thou canst answer me, set thy words in order before me, stand up.
    6 Behold, I am according to thy wish in God’s stead: I also am formed out of the clay.

    Everything his friends said what’s not completely wrong it was just twisted and used to condemn job of being sinful. that is a tactic that is used quite a bit unfortunately in the church where someone will take their own personal interpretation of the word of God and use it to bring someone down. The greatest enemy of the church is not the devil but rather the individuals who attempt to tear the church from the inside out. We must be watchful for those who seek to cause division and create stronger bonds with those who walk alongside of us on the path of righteousness.

  3. 26 He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.

    27 He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

    28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

    Don’t forget Paul died daily. Prayer and repentance it’s part of salvation. We only receive the Holy Ghost for the first time once. We only get baptized and covered by the blood Once.
    But repentance is every day and everyday that’s apart of prayer sometimes more than once. Jesus loves you, all of you are awesome. Be blessed in jesus name.

  4. “Yes, God does these things again and again for people. He rescues them from the grave so they may enjoy the light of life.
    Job 33:29‭-‬30 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/job.33.29-30.NLT

    God is a merciful God and contrary to what some people think God wants to see us living a fulfilled life. If we can still ourselves and connect tune into God we can find that connection and start living that very life. Even in the fulfilled life there are that’s and trials, but God has us covered. I have not had such a happy, joyful, full life as now the more submitted and faithful I become to God and my husband. There is peace in God’s order.

  5. 28. God rescued me from the grave, and now my life is filled with light. NLT

    This scripture is also true for all of us that have been filled with the Holy Ghost – God delivered us from eternally dying and gave us eternal life, now He is the light in our life. Need more light? Get more Jesus!

    John 8:
    12. Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. KJV

  6. For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
    Job 33:14‭-‬15 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/job.33.14-15.KJV

    God speaks to us in alot of different ways,and it’s up to us to have the faith to listen and put that faith into action, pray, and talk to Pastor and pray some more!

  7. When he prays to God, he will be accepted. And God will receive him with joy and restore him to good standing. He will declare to his friends, ‘I sinned and twisted the truth, but it was not worth it. God rescued me from the grave, and now my life is filled with light.’ “Yes, God does these things again and again for people. He rescues them from the grave so they may enjoy the light of life.
    Job 33:26‭-‬30 NLT

    Thank You Jesus! Though we can strive for be Christ-like and strive to reach perfection – as humans, we are not. We make mistakes and we make unwise choices but despite it all, God is faithful and just for forgive us! Daily build up your altar and let the Lord sanctify you.

  8. The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life. If thou canst answer me, set thy words in order before me, stand up. Behold, I am according to thy wish in God’s stead: I also am formed out of the clay.
    Job 33:4‭-‬6 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/job.33.4-6.KJV

    God is the creator of all things and gives us life. As long as we follow after His Kingdom and remove the world from us; we shall never die. Even though we are born into sin there is redemption for us. I am like the clay that a sculptor has; not formed until He puts His hands to it. God molds each of us as a sculptor forms a statue or a bust. Yeah we can be put through an assembly line, but that is not of God. He takes His time to mold and put His hands to each one of us as if creating that perfect, masterful work of art. Thank you Jesus for being my artist.

  9. Job 33:4 [Amp] [It is] the Spirit of God that made me [ which has stirred me up], and the breath of the Almighty that gives me life [ which inspired me]. There are alot of people out that need God. There trying to destory church , and tell you there is no hope. It’s called repentance everyday and prayer. Submission and Obedience . I fear God I fear God…. Get a real life love Jesus.

  10. 14For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

    There are many situations that we may have to go through and we pray that God would speak to us and we don’t hear him. To many times with all the circumstances that everything is louder than the voice of God. We tend to miss God’s voice. Seeking first the kingdom of God will heighten our senses to the voice of God and there may be something’s we have to sacrifice to hear God.

    God is all to often a small still voice that we can easily mistaken for other things and it be exactly what we need. We need to search ourselves to make sure we can recognize the voice of God. This can only happen by prayer and fasting. Also we have to eat the word everyday to gain wisdom and knowledge to hear God. Don’t be to occupied to miss what God speaks.

    Seek first the kingdom!
    I love the Kingdom!

  11. Job 34
    I can’t understand these men called friends . The Bible specifically says God called Job a righteous man. Yet these friends seem to continually pick at him. Job sits quietly and takes the words of his friend again. That in itself shows humility . The question is ; did the friends mean well Or were they really questioning Job’s integrity. Maybe both.

    Solomon once said that, “a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a network of silver” (Prov. 25:11). T
    Choosing our words wisely and sometimes just not saying anything at all . Lord remind me to listen with your ears and to hear what is truly being said by those who are hurting . Help me not to come to conclusions in the midst of their crying out for help. I pray that your presence would ever be with me . Help me to be sensitive yet powerful enough to hold my tongue that I might speak only what You would have me to say. Another thing Lord when those who are trying to encourage me in my moments of desperation allow me to stay quiet even if I’m being falsely accused. In reality only You know the truth and the depths of our souls. In Jesus name.

    Is this is the lesson we are to learn from the chapter today……..

    Isaiah 53:7
    He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

  12. iLove the Kingdom
    29 Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man, 30 To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

    This tells me God is always working on us. He is always trying to bring us bring us back into his presence and help us escape from the pit. It is not the will of God that any should perish, but that all have eternal life. We must humble ourselves and allow God to lead us. Sometimes he takes us where we don’t want to go, let’s just learn to praise the Lord.

  13. 33 … hold thy peace, and I shall teach thee wisdom.

    How does one receive wisdom by not speaking? I believe there are two ways. First, observation. Most of us are very good at seeing just a small part of what is in front of us. We might see a bird but do not notice how it eats or relates to other birds. We may see the people we are with but do not pay attention to their facial expressions or body language, the clues that might tell us how they are feeling. We may not always learn something new from observing but we can learn patterns and nuances. Everything we say and do has little consequences. The same goes for what we observe.

    Second is listening. All human conversations can be boiled down to three categories; facts, opinions and feelings. Wisdom comes from determining which of these three are being communicated. A spouse comes home in a rage and wants to re-enact the days events. This conversation will likely start with facts but will soon change to feelings. A wise listener will try to determine when the facts stop, and opinions and feelings take over. This does not mean to stop the person mid-sentence and attempt to correct the speech. Allow them to vent. Then, when the feelings of the re-enactment have subsided offer some insight from your perspective.

    The challenge is to absorb the message and decipher what’s most important to the speaker. This is critical – failing to recognize what’s important is not effective listening. We may have heard what our spouse said, but we missed what they wanted us to hear.

  14. 4The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
    5 If thou canst answer me, set thy words in order before me, stand up.
    6 Behold, I am according to thy wish in God’s stead: I also am formed out of the clay.

    We are all the same. We all come from Adam. We all were formed with the dust of the earth. How can we say that we are great than one or lesser than another? Why do we measure ourselves one to another? God has made us all equal in His sight. We are all the children of God. When we seek after our Fathers business, we will make daddy proud. Before my father passed away, he asked me if I was upset that he sold his business, so that I could take it over one day. I told him no I was not upset because I didnt want to be a printer. I saw a look of regret and relief. He was sad to hear that I didnt want to be like him, but was relieved because I explained to him why and how I saw how harmful itvwas it His health. He understood and after our discussion he came over and prayed that God would bless me in whatever I decided to do. I can say that his prayers have not gone unanswered. If my earthly father thought so much about this, how much more does our Heavenly Father do so? Seek ye first His Kingdom.

  15. 26 He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.

    We have a place at Jesus’s feet where we can pray, repent and be filled with his Spirit. It is joy unspeakable and full of glory. Job had been seeking this place once again, as he had before the trial began. This is what this world is seeking, but is looking in all the wrong directions. Our joy comes from salvation! Isaiah 12:3 “Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.”

  16. “But if not, then listen to me. Keep silent and I will teach you wisdom!””
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭33:33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    This certainly must’ve pierced Job’s heart! I know if someone younger than me while trying to counsel me told me this, it would’ve rubbed me the wrong way! But nonetheless, this young man makes some good points. While reading through this chapter, I can say that no one really knows why people go through terrible storms, only God. Your tests may want to make you question God… but NEVER forget, we can ALWAYS trust Jesus! 🙂

  17. 33 1-4 “So please, Job, hear me out,
    honor me by listening to me.
    What I’m about to say
    has been carefully thought out.
    I have no ulterior motives in this;
    I’m speaking honestly from my heart.
    The Spirit of God made me what I am,
    the breath of God Almighty gave me life!

    A true friend can show you the err of your ways, and you be okay with it. Maybe not at first but when you let the wisdom they share sink it, you are okay with it in the end. That is why the Bible tells us there is wisdom in a multitude of counsel.

    We need friends that will tell us truth, not sugar coat it, not skirt around it , and definitely not just tell us what we want to hear.

    Our salvation depends on us living right and if we need correction, we must be willing to accept it so that we can grow and mature.

  18. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    THE KINGS WORK

    29 Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,
    30 To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

    I am reminded of the words of the LORD to the prophet Isaiah.

    Isaiah 43:11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
    12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.
    13 Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

    The KING desires to work in the lives of mankind. GOD seeks and saves those that are lost and seek and desire to be found. Many have attempted shortcuts and bypasses; however JESUS has established forever the path to HIM.

    GOD will WORK for us; but often our flesh hinders HIS WORK. GOD oftentimes WORKS with man; but HIS ways are not our ways, so we resist. HIS WILL is often not our will.

    It is imperative for us to understand and remember that GOD is WORKING to SAVE us and bring us into HIS Light.

    Do NOT resist the WORK of GOD. Choose SUBMISSION and SPIRITUAL Covering as our path and position.

    The apostles understood this principal:

    James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

    1Peter 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

    GOD called Saul into this enlightening revelation as well.

    Acts 9:5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

    We are privileged to choose our path to eternity. I choose SUBMISSION every day and when I stumble in obedience, I repent and submit to HIS way and will.

  19. If there is an angel on his side, one mediator out of a thousand, to tell a person what is right for him and to be gracious to him and say, “Spare him from going down to the Pit; I have found a ransom,” then his flesh will be healthier than in his youth, and he will return to the days of his youthful vigor. He will pray to God, and God will delight in him. That man will see His face with a shout of joy, and God will restore his righteousness to him. He will look at men and say, “I have sinned and perverted what was right; yet I did not get what I deserved. He redeemed my soul from going down to the Pit, and I will continue to see the light.”
    Job 33:23‭-‬28 HCSB

    I was hopelessly lost and deserving of hell, but I didn’t get what I deserved because Jesus gave His life as a ransom for mine. He redeemed my soul from the pit and clothed me with His own righteousness. Now, I can walk in His light and rejoice in His goodness. Now, because of the goodness of my God (and not my own), I will one day see His face, the One who saved me by His grace, and cry ‘Holy! Holy! Holy!’ before His throne with joy.

    “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.’
    Mark 10:45 KJV

    “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”
    1 Timothy 2:5‭-‬6 KJV

    Praise God!

    He paid a debt He did not owe,
    I owed a debt I could not pay,
    I needed someone to wash my sin away
    And now I sing that brand new song: Amazing Grace
    For Jesus paid the debt that I could never pay

  20. 31 Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I will speak.

    When you are driving, and the moment you can no longer SEE where you are going anymore, what’s the first thing we do?

    Turn the radio down.

    It’s amazing how the human mind works, to see better, we turn down the volume of the radio. The outside noise, that distracts us.

    In our spiritual life we are constantly asking for direction, desiring His Face, and seeking first the Kingdom, yet to hear and to understand we must first hold thy peace. Turn down the cares of this world, turn off the distractions, and put away the worries, and wait on the Lord to speak.

    Lamentations 3:25 The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.

  21. “Yes, God does these things
    again and again for people.
    30 He rescues them from the grave
    so they may enjoy the light of life.

    Amen! God is always speaking to us through various ways and circumstances. He always speaks to us even when we don’t want to listen! We have to shut things down around us so we can hear His voice and know what He wants us to do. Jesus loves us that will always speak to us but it’s our part to listen and obey. How can we think God doesn’t want the best for us if He knows it all. If Hes the one that made everything why is it so hard to trust Him at times. His ways are better than our ways.

    “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
    declares the Lord.
    9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isiah 55:8-9

  22. God is greater than man.
    God is greater than any man,sickness, Pain and hurt nothing is to big not to great for my God

  23. Job 33:4 KJV
    The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

    Isaiah 44:2 KJV
    This saith the LORD that made thee, and formed the from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant;

    Isaiah 44:24. KJV
    Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things, that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

    Isaiah 49:5 KJV
    And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant,

    Jeremiah 1:5 KJV
    Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

    God has a purpose for each of us, even before we are born.

  24. “So why are you bringing a charge against him? Why say he does not respond to people’s complaints? For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭33:13-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    People often make decisions for their family’s and for themselves. Thinking that they know best about why to do. And how things should happen. But then often blame God when things go wrong. How? You never asked him. Why blame him if you never asked him.

  25. Job 33:26-28 (msg)
    Or, you may fall on your knees and pray – to God’s delight!
    You’ll see God’s smile and celebrate,
    finding yourself set right with God.
    You’ll sing God’s praises to everyone you meet,
    testifying, I messed up my life –
    and let me tell you, it wasn’t worth it.
    But God stepped in and saved me from certain death.
    I’m alive again! Once more I see the light!

    “You may fall on your knees and pray. “How’s Your Altar Today?”
    1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

    I’m so Thankful for the Forgiveness and Mercy of God.
    When I mess up, all I have to do is “fall on my knees and pray,” and confess my sins, and He will cleanse me and save me.
    JESUS today YOU will SAVE me!

  26. The Spirit of God has made me… Truly I am as your spokesman before God: We see here also the touches of pride that marked Elihu and many young men since him. He was anxious to demonstrate to Job and to the three friends of Job that he was just as good, just as spiritual, and just as wise as they were.
    We can say that Elihu thought of himself as just a little better, spiritual, and wise than Job and his three friends. He believed that he could be an effective spokesman for Job before God.
    It is obvious that Elihu does have some glaring faults: he talks too much; he repeats himself; he is enormously conceited. Worst of all, like the other friends, he seriously misreads Job’s problem as being one of unrepented sin, and as a result he condemns a righteous man.

  27. 14 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

    Open your ears and listen to the voice of God. We often get wrapped up in our own distractions and drown out God’s voice and try to go our own way or take our own advice and it turns out causing more trouble than helping. Be mindful and get away from distractions. Be blessed today!

  28. “Pay attention, Job, listen to me; Keep silent, and I will speak. If you have anything to say, answer me; Speak, for I desire to justify you. If not [and you have nothing to say], listen to me; Keep silent, and I will teach you wisdom.””
    ‭‭JOB‬ ‭33:31-33‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    We are often too busy telling God what we want and what He could do to “fix” our lives, that we don’t take the time to listen for His voice.

    God speaks to us through people, He speaks to us through His word, and when we pray we may feel Him leading us a certain way.

    But if we are always the one doing the talking, how will we ever listen?

  29. What I learned from this chapter was, that someone was speaking to Job. He was telling Job that not to let his aggressiveness stop him from doing the word of God. He also told him that we were all made from the same mud, that’s how God made us. We as POFW can’t let little things get to us, we have to apologize and MoveOn if we get our feelings hurt. BE STONG IN CHRIST POFW!!!!!😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

  30. No one is higher than Jesus not you not your friend 😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌😌

  31. No one is higher than Jesus but we can go to heaven to meet him. Jobs friend was better than the other friends because he is encouraging him to listen to God😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😀😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😀😄

  32. God will always answer. You see God often answers us but the distractions around us drawn out His voice or causes us to be humble enough to accept Him answer.

    A few chapters back Job spoke out pain in this chapter Elihu is not speaking out of pain or just experience but He’s speaking from divine revelation. God given wisdom is revelation and it’s more powerful than experience alone.

  33. Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man, To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.
    Job 33:29‭-‬30 KJV
    I am so thankful for the patience and mercy of God! He is continually working for our good. Especially when when we are getting closer to the pit! It reminds me of the parable of the lost sheep.
    What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
    Luke 15:4 KJV
    When we get lost in the way, He goes after us!!!

  34. “If there is an angel as a mediator for him, One out of a thousand, To explain to a man what is right for him [that is, how to be in right standing with God], Then the angel is gracious to him, and says, ‘Spare him from going down to the pit [of destruction]; I have found a ransom [a consideration, or reason for redemption, an atonement]!’ Let his flesh be restored and become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful strength. He will pray to God, and He shall be favorable to him, So that he looks at His face with joy; For God restores to man His righteousness [that is, his right standing with God—with its joys].
    JOB 33:23‭-‬26 AMP
    https://bible.com/bible/1588/job.33.23-26.AMP

  35. 1 Wherefore, Job, I pray thee, hear my speeches, and hearken to all my words.

    Sometimes we need to listen to those around us who are speaking a word of faith because they just might has a word for you! Jesus will use anyone to do his will if they are willing. We need to be careful and prayfule of everything

  36. For God may speak in one way, or in another, Yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction.
    Job 33:14‭-‬16 NKJV

    Many times we want a Word from the Lord. We want a thus sayeth the Lord. We want Him to single us out and speak to us. The reality is that He is already speaking and desiring to speak to you all the time. Prayer is communication. Communication is relationship. Yet the key is that it must he both ways. Send and receive. There must be a time for us to listen. You may say I have a need and I must get a Word from God. There are 66 books I’m the bible. Start there. Pray that God will open up your understanding that you can know what the Spirit, the Word is saying to the church, you. You that are the temple of the Holy Ghost. Seek Him in prayer and allow time to listen. Oh how we need His direction in life. Give a time to listen and stand in His presence. Get to know Him. Discover the ways he talks to you. We talk differently to our friends depending on the relationship.

  37. 12 Behold, in this thou art not just: I will answer thee, that God is greater than man.
    13 Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters.

    Elihu makes a good point that, who are we to question God about what he is doing. God does not owe us an explanation for anything. It’s natural to want answer and it’s spiritual to have faith to trust that God is in control. When we step aside and allow God to move, miraculous things can happen.

    Job is innocent and his faithfulness will show even young Elihu the truth of the matter. He should take a seat, because offering Job words of wisdom, is like a slap in the face. If Elihu sticks around long enough, he could learn a thing or two of Jobs suffering.

  38. ““Listen to my words, Job; pay attention to what I have to say. Now that I have begun to speak, let me continue.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭33:1-2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    We must be careful of who we allow to speak into our lives. Some influences can be devastating. I’m grateful for the 3 Voices of Truth in my life: Gods voice, His Word and the Shepherd.

  39. 4 The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

    If God has given me life and breath my creator is also my mechanic. I am relieved and repaired through Jesus Christ my savior. Jesus is my everything mu nerves are gone when he dwells among me. In Jesus name I am made whole in him

  40. 28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

    Golden words!! He will deliver our soul from going into the pit and our life shall see the light. There is a transition in every saint’s life of this transition. Whether it’s from a sinner to a conformed saint, or maybe a child grown up to see it in a new light. The crossroads desicion of a child growing up in church whether they keep on or backslide. Or maybe the transition from being a backslider and coming home. Have you informed anyone lately about the transition? What it could benefit them, their life, and those around them???

  41. 5Answer me, if you can; make your case and take your stand.

    Imagine on judgement day, God asking you “make your case” about entering heaven. What would you say? I can only hope God will find be righteous enough to write my name in the book of life.
