Job 39

Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?

Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?

They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.

Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not unto them.

Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.

He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.

The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green thing.

Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?

10 Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

11 Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?

12 Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?

13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not her’s: her labour is in vain without fear;

17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

18 What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.

19 Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?

20 Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.

21 He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men.

22 He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.

23 The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield.

24 He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.

25 He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.

26 Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?

27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?

28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.

29 From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.

30 Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.

  1. 2 Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?
    3 They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows

    All of these questions were not meant to tear Job down, but to remind Job just how little he can do. The intention wasnt to condemn him but to convict Job. Job just needed to be reminded of his place in life, to keep him humble. Humility is just knowing who you are because of Christ and where you would be without him.Sometimes God has blessed us so much that we can easily get comfortable have an attitude that is contrary to what we started with. It is vital to our walk with God to remember where God brought us out of and what we started with to keep us in our place.

  2. 11 Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?

    12 Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?

    13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

    14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

    15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

    16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not her’s: her labour is in vain without fear;

    When reading this I immediately thought of those making deals with the adversary. We have too many folks making deals with the devil and leaving the church. People are easily compelled especially to sin. Sin is a hellish shriek our ears can not hear. Often times people are won by the looks of sin by the sound of sin and for the very short moment of pleasure of sin. All sin wants is for you to quit and walk away from God and just like this peacock it don’t care if you’re crushed by anything else in the world because its intentions is death. SINS INTENTIONS ARE DEATH. Jesus conquered death. It shouldn’t be difficult to find an altar after if you’re chasing after him. We have to chase after Jesus!

    Don’t make bad deals and don’t make any deals with devil.

  3. 16. She is harsh toward her young, as if they were not her own. She doesn’t care if they die.

    17. For God has deprived her of wisdom. He has given her no understanding. NLT

    It has always boggled my mind how someone could not love their own child and wish it were dead, even enough to murder it before it was ever born…maybe this is the answer; maybe God has turned them over to the spirit of the ostrich and deprived them of wisdom and understanding. Or, maybe there is no explanation other than this world is just that evil.

    Romans 1:
    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; KJV

  4. Job 39:1-2 [Amp] Do you know the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth [ their young] ?
    [ Or] do you observe when the hinds are giving birth? [ Do you attend to all this, Job] ? [2] Can you number the months that they carry their
    offspring? Or do you know the time when they are delivered. All these questions were to remind Job where he came from. God has been so good to us, I remember what God brought me out of. God the darkness belongs to you ! You are my Savior and Deliever.

  5. It paws the earth and rejoices in its strength when it charges out to battle. It laughs at fear and is unafraid. It does not run from the sword.
    Job 39:21‭-‬22 NLT

    Fearless. Why? With God’s wisdom (i.e. a fear of the Lord or a reverenced relationship with Him) brings us strength. With God there to fight our battles, all we have to do is remain faithful.

  6. The LORD is in control. He knows all things. When we can’t see what’s going on around us or we don’t understand why some things happen, God is there, working in the midst of our situation.
    God, You tell the sun when to rise. You tell the moon to hide it’s face. You tell the stars to shine. You tell the grass how tall to grow. You tell the trees how much they must reach toward You! How much more should we listen to God than these things? How much more so should we reach for God than the trees here on Earth? As sons and daughters of the Most High God how much more should we shine than the sun in the sky?
    God, I am overwhelmed by Your Greatness. I bow to Your Majesty, my KING.

  7. An ostrich proudly flaps her wings, but not because she loves her young. She abandons her eggs and lets the dusty ground keep them warm. And she doesn’t seem to worry that the feet of an animal could crush them all. She treats her eggs as though they were not her own, unconcerned that her work might be for nothing.
    Job 39:13‭-‬16

    Sounds like the days we are currently living in!!
    Just this morning i was praying that i would be more compassionate, srlfless, and most of all loving toward the people i come in contact with. Being a part of a revival church only leads you to dig deeper in His KINGDOM and bring yours down to the ground. People are hurting everywhere. Not understanding the days we are living in. Fear and torment are in the minds of the lost. It is our responsibility to pray and lead them to our savior.

    The bible says ot clearly:

    Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.
    Matthew 24:12

  8. Canest thou or knowest thou?

    When we grip and grumble against God, he can easily remind us how feeble and unwise we are. This is why to trust in Him is the best move we can make regardless of our circumstances.

    Anything is possible with God!

  9. “The ostrich flaps her wings futilely— all those beautiful feathers, but useless! She lays her eggs on the hard ground, leaves them there in the dirt, exposed to the weather, Not caring that they might get stepped on and cracked or trampled by some wild animal. She’s negligent with her young, as if they weren’t even hers. She cares nothing about anything. She wasn’t created very smart, that’s for sure, wasn’t given her share of good sense. But when she runs, oh, how she runs, laughing, leaving horse and rider in the dust.
    Job 39:13‭-‬18 MSG
    https://bible.com/bible/97/job.39.13-18.MSG

    I think the Ostrich is a ugly bird, with beautiful feathers, and they can run so fast! But our looks and abilities have no meaning if we cant do right things, we can be the most beautiful or even ugly person and have the greatest heart and some have the most ugliest because our attitude and our character is what is supposed to be what determines who we are, not our looks! You can have the most beautiful woman, or handsome man, but noone wants to be around people with horrible attitudes, God knows what he is doing, he showing Job that he has no control over anything, and who is he to challenge God by saying the things that he said. his crybaby attitude, and I can get in that place! And it’s not fun place, so I try not to go, that’s why the word says to trust in God, Hes got this!

  10. 39.
    We must walk by faith. God is the creator of everything
    He is omniscient and we are not!
    Let us quit trying to understand his ways, and just obey and believe.

  11. She abandons her eggs and lets the dusty ground keep them warm. And she doesn’t seem to worry that the feet of an animal could crush them all. She treats her eggs as though they were not her own, unconcerned that her work might be for nothing. I myself made her foolish and without common sense.
    Job 39:14‭-‬17 CEV
    https://bible.com/bible/392/job.39.14-17.CEV

    As I was reading this: it reminds me of those that leave their children to fend for themselves. Uh, I had a child: that is the attitude of some parents. Without guidance and teaching how will they grow up knowing what is right and wrong. Most children that grow this way are devoured by the streets and they either end up in jail or dying spiritually at a very young age. We have to guard our children and raise them to have the knowledge and wisdom to stay away from the influences of man. Can we guard our children from running into it; no, but we can give them the knowledge to turn from it. How we act and think can influence how our children are. If we act without knowing and our children see this; they will want to do the same. Parents guard your children and raise them with wisdom and knowledge. Don’t turn them to man as the Ostrich leaves her egg to be born and trampled under foot. Lord Jesus help me to protect my children from this world.

  12. They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.

    4 Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not unto them.

    5 Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

    6 Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.

Or why did Jesus loosen the bands of the wild animals? 6.Jesus made the Wilderness House and he made the barren his dwelling land.

  14. Job 39

    Time
    1 Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?
    God’s timing of everything. From birth to death. There has been a set time or season of fulfillment.
    Whether it’s the goat giving birth or the ostrich burying her egg…Time is everything. To everything there is a season. I’m still unsure why God allowed Job this season of pain. But I know that God’s timing in each of our lives is held in His Hands. We want answers and immediate results when God’s timing is perfect. Premature births many times end in sorrow due to the under development of a baby. Whether human or animal.

    Trusting God comes only when we are able to say “God, I can’t figure this out. I have to come to the realization that I am not the one who has set the timer for what is about to be birthed .
    Trusting God often requires not knowing how God is going to accomplish what needs to be done and not knowing when He will do it. He uses times of waiting to stretch our faith in Him and to bring about change and growth in our lives.
    Yes time is every thing. And God holds it in His Hands. We may say I’m ready and God says No not yet. But in His time at the moment when He knows we are ready …..so what ever you may be waiting for just like any birth it takes time patience and allowing the process to be finished then something beautiful will come forth…..

    II Corinthians 6:2
    2 For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you…….

    🦋. The Butterfly Story
    A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

    So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.

    The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.

    The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.

    Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.

    What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were Life’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

    Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. Remember nature needs no help, just no interference. There are processes of life, things we all go through. The struggles are a part of our journey and are preparing us for what awaits. They are preparing us to fly.

    Wow, look at the effects of pride. The Word says the following of the ostrich, “What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.”

    Y’all see this…the ostrich is so exalted in its own eyes, that it scorneth the horse and rider. That is a pretty exalted view of oneself, especially if that rider has a weapon. (That ostrich is about to become thanksgiving dinner). With this being said, lets take a look of this spirit of pride that has taken hold of the ostrich and see its effects:

    *Pride will deprive you from true wisdom. See verse 17
    *Pride will cause you to not be able to understand basic truths. See verse 17
    *Pride will remove responsibility from you towards your children. See verse 16
    *Pride will harden your heart. See verse 16
    *Pride will cause you to labor in vain. See verse 16.

    Pride is a disruptive force that we all have to learn how to defeat or it will cause us all to be destroyed. The next time we think we’re someone special, just think about yourself being an ostrich who’s about to go to battle with a horse and rider…

  16. Letting someone express their frustrations makes us a good friend, a caring family member, and a comforting spouse. Being a good listener, however, often requires a little more effort than nodding your head while someone rants. Try to make the people we care about feel comfortable, understood, and validated.

    Everyone needs to let off a little steam every once in awhile, and people love a good listener. Maybe our friend is having a hard time at work, or maybe our spouse is dealing with family drama and they have no one else to turn to. While we may not be a professional therapist, it doesn’t mean we can’t lend an ear to their troubles or offer a shoulder to cry on. If we approach things the right way, it’s possible to hear everyone out without completely draining ourselves in the process.

    When we offer ourselves up for listening, we should know what we’re getting into. If we try too hard to calm them down or hold them back, we’ll run the risk of trivializing their complaints and making them feel worse. Open the floodgates and be ready to brave the storm.

  17. As I read this chapter, I was thinking,” God i dont really understand all these animals and what it has to do with Job?” And then I realize that, that is the mystery of God. We may not understand all the things that He does, but when we have faith in Him, it doesnt matter. God’s ways are so much greater than our own. When in doubt of anything, remember who is control. God!!!
    So keep His Kingdom first in your life.

  18. AMP 3 “The [flightless] wings of the ostrich wave joyously;
    With the pinion (shackles, fetters) and plumage of love,
    14 For she leaves her eggs on the ground
    And warms them in the dust,
    15 Forgetting that a foot may crush them,
    Or that the wild beast may trample them.
    16 “She treats her young cruelly, as if they were not hers;
    Though her labor is in vain because she is unconcerned [for the safety of her brood],
    17 For God has made her forget wisdom,
    And has not given her a share of understanding.
    18 “Yet when she lifts herself [b]on high,
    [So swift is she that] she laughs at the horse and his rider.

    Jesus created everything for specific purposes. The Ostrich was created to give birth, yet has no common sense to protect her eggs from being trampled. Yet can run faster than a horse when necessary.

    Each of us have purpose and are created equally but different. We must not try to be something different than what God created us to be or most likely we will find ourselves as Job has, challenging God because we don’t understand what He is doing in our lives, making and molding us to be an Eagle when we think we are an ostrich.

    We must search our hearts, find our purpose/ministry and operate within that ministry. Becoming all we can be for Jesus is the greatest endeavor we can attain.

  19. Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.
    Job 39:17 KJV

    Each speaker, in their turn, boasted of their own wisdom. They compared their wisdom to that of the previous speaker and ultimately decided that noone but themselves really understood the situation.

    This chapter is telling them, and us, that God is the giver of all wisdom. But for the grace of God, we would have no ability whatsoever to think or reason or even to put two sentences together. And yet, we want to boast in what we consider our natural ability and expect other men to give us glory for it.

    Paul got it right when he said:
    “…that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?”
    1 Corinthians 4:6‭-‬7 KJV

    “But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.”
    1 Corinthians 15:10 KJV

    “Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;”
    Ephesians 3:7‭-‬8 KJV

    All that we have, and all that we have the ability and the opportunity to be, is a gift from God. We need to accept it as such. The Lord giveth, and He can take away. We need to be humble and grateful, rather than proud and boastful. Moreover, like Paul, we need to determine to use the gifts given to us for the good of others and for the glory of the God who gave it.

  20. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    DELIVERANCE

    5 Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

    As GOD continues HIS commune with Job, HE includes the wild animals created and led by HIM as he did the atmosphere in chapter 38.

    Verse 5 stuck particularly to me because of its significance in application to man. Consider the fact; Donkeys are known for their strength and will. These are 2 of mans greatest struggles. However, GOD declares that HE has the authority to set them free.

    The application of this through to man brings hope to the gravest of sinners, the bound of society, the wild of the wilderness, the arrogant of the room and the uncontrollable of the world. In other words; “GOD gives HOPE to anyone and HELP to everyone.

    If GOD can lead the wildest and strongest of will (The Donkey), we should not doubt that HE is able to lead us also.

    Take this opportunity to pray for those that are bound by sin and the servants of self and this world. JESUS is coming and we must be ready, as well we must tell others of the LOVE of JESUS.

  21. ““Do you know when the wild goats give birth? Have you watched as deer are born in the wild? Do you know how many months they carry their young? Are you aware of the time of their delivery? They crouch down to give birth to their young and deliver their offspring. Their young grow up in the open fields, then leave home and never return.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭39:1-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Though Job didn’t know these principles of the natural order, at the same time he had to admit that the natural order all seemed to work pretty well. All these questions brought Job before another truth: “I see that this world made by God operates with remarkable order and wisdom; can I deny His wisdom and government of all things just because there are things in my own life I can’t understand? Or, should I simply trust God who does all these other things so marvelously well?”

  22. I am amazed by the power of God, here God is reminding Job that with all that is going on in Jib’s life there is always something that we will miss. The questioning of God toward Job was not a scolding, but a reminder that Job May have been righteous and holy man but there are still things that only God can and will handle. There are no words that ultimately describe the power of our God.

    5 Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

    When reading through these scriptures today it reminds me of those that we witness to everyday that are bound by the grip of sin. I can not imagine living in such uncertainty and knowing I will never reap the benefits of God’s blessings. They are deceived by how sun makes them feel and they wil eventually reap death because of it. But my God is able to break every chain and loose every shackle that binds them to the hold of sin. We as the church must not throw in the towel, because God has not rung the bell yet, there is still some time to work and allow God opportunity to work through us.

    I want to become more available for God to use me mightily and the only way I can do that is seeking more of him and less of me. Seek first the kingdom of God and allow him to make the changes required.

    I love the Kingdom!

  23. “Ostriches are mean to their little ones. They treat them as if they did not belong to them. They do not care that their work was useless.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭39:16‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    I sure wouldn’t want an ostrich for my mother. Nor would I want to be an Ostrich Mother. The church is often referred to as a mother to every Christ believers. I pray as God allows souls to be born again in our church that we would care for every new believer with the best care. That we would be full of love and compassion and travail until Christ in formed in them. Jesus said that we have great co-mission and that is go make Disciples, baptize and teach them to obey! No time to have an “Fowl” spirit of an ostrich

  24. 11 Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?

    Will you trust in God when times get hard

  25. ““The [flightless] wings of the ostrich wave joyously; With the pinion (shackles, fetters) and plumage of love, For she leaves her eggs on the ground And warms them in the dust, Forgetting that a foot may crush them, Or that the wild beast may trample them. She treats her young cruelly, as if they were not hers; Though her labor is in vain because she is unconcerned [for the safety of her brood], For God has made her forget wisdom, And has not given her a share of understanding.”
    ‭‭JOB‬ ‭39:13-17‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    If it can be said of an ostrich that she lacks wisdom and understanding for her carelessness toward her young, what can be said of human beings that don’t even consider their child a life until days after he/she is born?

  26. Job 39:13-16 (TLB Paraphrased)
    13) The ostrich flaps her wings grandly, but has no true motherly love.
    14) She lays her eggs on top of the earth, to warm them in the dust.
    15) She forgets that someone may step on them and crush them, or the wild animals destroy them.
    16) She ignores her young as though they weren’t her own, and is unconcerned though they die.

    These scriptures made me think of when Bishop Foster taught us on being “Spiritual Parents.” We cannot afford to allow our “Spiritual Babies – New Believers” to be left on their own to be stepped on, crushed, or destroyed. We must show them “motherly love” by protecting and taking care of them.

    Thank You JESUS for all those who teach Home Bible Studies, do Follow-Up Visits, and make Phone Calls.

  27. 13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

    14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

    15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

    16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not her’s: her labour is in vain without fear;

    17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

    18 What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.

    Many of us run around like the ostrich. We pray for babies, but don’t take the time to nurture them, nor do we try to protect them, but we tuck our heads in the sand and ignore the fact that what happens with them also affects us too. But Jesus in his great mercy, still uses us. He even uses us when we act all goofy, to shame the elect.

  28. We must be like job and be challenged every day to focus on the purpose that the lord has givens us, and we be willing to our all to him no matter the struggle or battle that rages. Because it’s him that deserve all the glory!

    First the kingdom!

  29. 16 She is harsh toward her young, as if they were not her own. She doesn’t care if they die.

    Lord help us see these spiritual babies with love and compassion how you love them. Jesus help us nurture these children to treat them with love. These babies need that love and nurture that you have given us. These babies are what the enemy want to pull and destroy. We must cover them with prayer and help them every step of the way. Just because we’re Christians now doesn’t mean that life is easier but it is better because now we have Jesus to help us throughout every step. Lord help us lead these babies to you.

  30. Job 39:13-18

    Gravest thou the ….feathers unto the ostrich? Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmth them in dust, and forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them. She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear; Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, meither hath he imparted unto her understanding. What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.

    The Lord God showed me that I am like unto an ostrich, hiding her head in the sand. I don’t always speak to people about Christ (have a covering of feathers from God, but leave my eggs – seeds – in the earth, unspoken) while warming them in the dust (giving them a warm, friendly invite to church – wanting that to cover them from harm), forgetting the purpose , strength and power, of the enemy to crush or break them (discourage or prevent them from coming to God’s church).

    I am hardened against my young ones (whether biological ones or those I greet) as though they were not mine to reach. (It was someone else’s job to follow up on my “loving” example) laboring in vain and without the fear of God. (Not having the wisdom or understanding of what I was not doing in order to obtain the good fruit, which is of God. – It’s to me, to continue to follow up on those you do reach with love and encouragement, while not being judgemental in attitude. Which I also have trouble with.)

    What time I thought of myself as teaching success, I neglected to give credit to the horse and his rider that carried me (the church, with the pastor that held the reins – who was trying to be in charge [teach and guide] and also be supportive and supported. That’s not as easy as it may sound. Sometimes a horse can be stubborn and want to go a different direction. I’ve ridden a horse.)

    If this has been helpful to you, too, I hope you will reread verses 19-25 of Job 39, seeing the horse as the church, the rider as our pastor, the sound of the trumpet as the devil this time, and the captains as the other of our church directors.

    God bless His church and it’s pastor(s). Pray for them and us all. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  31. God asks Job 60 questions about creation and shares information that only the Creator would know. No wonder Job is speechless and has to repent for ever questioning God. You could say that God put him in his place!

  32. 13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

    14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

    15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

    We can look good on the outside but not fly. We can’t not just look good but we must be able to fly.

  33. ““The ostrich flaps her wings grandly, but they are no match for the feathers of the stork. She lays her eggs on top of the earth, letting them be warmed in the dust. She doesn’t worry that a foot might crush them or a wild animal might destroy them. She is harsh toward her young, as if they were not her own. She doesn’t care if they die. For God has deprived her of wisdom. He has given her no understanding. But whenever she jumps up to run, she passes the swiftest horse with its rider.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭39:13-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    These verses really spoke to me, for me it’s saying if you are given a responsibility and sometimes we are harsh towards it because we weren’t given the wisdom or understanding of it and sometimes act as if it’s not our own, but if in danger our instincts bring us out of harms way. Just because we aren’t given all of the tools doesn’t mean we can’t keep pressing on and figure out a way to avoid the problems that may arise. Always look to God and have faith that He will see you through.

  34. 1 Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?

    Will you trust in God with all or will you crumble at the first storm? I will trust in God for He hasshowedme that everything will work at the end for His glory alone!!!

  35. Things in our life happen for a reason. We may not always understand why we are going through a particular situation. God will always bring us through our trial if we can just trust his judgment and timing. Our God is a great God.

  36. Se remonta el águila por tu mandamiento, y pone en alto su nido?
    Ella habita y mora en la peña. En la cumbre del peñasco y de la roca.
    Desde ali acecha la presa, sus ojos observan desde muy lejos.
    Job 39:27-29

  37. It’s been a roller coaster reading through Job’s like but one thing stays the same GOD! Let us find job in knowing aGod will provide for us.

  38. Dios hizo a Job varias preguntas acerca de animales..no creo que staba buscando que Job le respondiera. Quisas queria que Job reconociera que El tenia todo en control!

  39. The earth and all that dwell in, all his creations scream out His glory. Majestic are all excellent and marvelous. From the strength of the horse to the flight of an eagle all are examples of God’s great handiwork…yet above all them His very especial creation are you and me. His hands formed us, with such delicate touch and yet complex beauty all unique with its own seal of distinctive fingerprint… almost as if He signed it like one else can. No one can compare to who you are distinctively because of who He is. Overwhelming to the extreme marvelous, a terrible God, a flame of love and zeal towards you… a Consuming Fire. And with all that passion, He love you. He loves me!
    Jesus is Lord!!!

  40. God is amazing. He does so much more than ever imagined. We are still finding out the wonderful things he has done for us. He has set up every detail to the tiniest part. He knows your beginning and your ending.

  41. In reading this chapter, we see that God created all things with a purpose, a plan and a directive. Lord guide us to be obedient to that call and respond with an inquisitive “why” rather than a whining “why” as we learned last week in Sunday School….our attitude is everything.

  42. 26“Is it your wisdom that makes the hawk soar and spread its wings toward the south.

    Yes, you try to pass on wisdom to others, especially your children and family. They will listen but will they obey? Just like hearing the Word. We can hear and listen, but we only pick and choose what we want to obey.
