Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012–”..Instead, glorify His mighty works, …” Mema JeanneI couldn’t let today pass without responding to our reading in Job 35-37.
Job 35:3b…”What’s the use of living a righteous?” Just as Elihu is asking this question of Job so we should ask ourselves this same question. The one answer I came up with is, “Eternity”!!!!!! So, should we even try to live a righteous life and put Jesus Christ first and serve Him and further His Kingdom while here on earth? I say, yes; what do you say? Job 37:7- I do bulletin boards at my church, and last year, I used types of work being done in the snow and rain with the caption: “ Then everyone stops working so they can watch His Power.” What do we do when we stop our “work” for the day, or for the hour, or for a few minutes? Do we spend time thinking on Him? Do we use that few minutes for prayers of thanksgiving and praise? Do we have a Bible that we carry with us on the job? Do we take a break from reading favorite children’s book to share Jesus with that child? Do we get up early-before anyone else does-do spend time with God-just you and Him? We know His power through His works and His Word. What a mighty God we serve!! Job 37:14–”Pay attention to this, Job (Jeanne). Stop and consider the wonderful miracles of God!” This verse makes me think of Ann Voskamp’s, one thousand gifts. Do we consider even the “ dew that falls on the meadow” a wonderful miracle? Job 37: 22-24–Can we only imagine??? “He is clothed in dazzling splendor.” That’s what I’m talking about!!!!!
His Word is precious to us all, and I just wanted to share in a “shout out” to God!!! Count the miracles He’s performed in your life this Sabbath and sleep tight,
