This day with God, we continue to follow His plan, reflect His view, and shine the light to what we should do. We trust because He first loved us. Today, we continue in Job 36:1-23 and note that Elihu discovers the attributes of God which include being mighty, firm in purpose, and giver of rights for the afflicted.
God lifts up the righteous but sometimes even the righteous go through difficulty so we may ask the question: What is the purpose of affliction? According to Elihu, it is to teach people of their wrong ways. God makes them listen to correction and commands them to repent of their evil (v. 10). Elihu says that Job should take his affliction as a teaching moment.
God teaches by the Bible to spark a light of faith in each heart leading safely through the mists of doubt. The Son teaches with clear principles that are straight from our Creator and radiates His Spirit which lives in each believer.
This day with You Lord, we trust because You first loved us. You have freed us up to fulfill our purpose. We trust and lay down our fears. We are grateful for what You have already done. The Good News shines the light on the path we should take so we ask that You open our eyes Lord now and let faith arise. Amen.
