God has a purpose for us in all stages of life be it a teenager deciding what type of career they would like to pursue, a college student, a young professional, a leader within a business or organization, or someone nearing or already in retirement. At all stages of life, the Bible is helpful in providing what is needed to be successful. If you have not done so yet, click the follow button to be notified of future post.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been looking at ways to apply the word found in the book of Job and sharing some thoughts that not only can benefit you now but also help the next generation too! The greatest of all possessions one can hand off to future generations are the guiding principles taught by Christ Jesus.
On the journey through the book of Job 35, Elihu tries to answer more questions which were touched upon in the post “Step Ahead to Victory”. Job has been crying for help since his life was turned upside down. One point that came from the study is that maybe prayers are not always answered because God has bigger plans.
From “We Trust Because He First Loved Us”, noted was that 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.
Elihu gives a talk in Job 36:24 through 37:24. The post “Greatness of God Expressed in Nature”, that challenges Job to consider how deep and inconceivable God’s counsel is compared to that of fellow man.
Pointed out in “Reflection” is that the creation of the earth is humbling. Think about how much is done every 24 hours and how God is involved in all the affairs of the world. The earth rotates to produce each day and night, the moon somehow remains suspended in the sky, and the rain makes the plants grow to produce food.
Does the eagle soar at your command and build its nest on high? – Job 39:27
The above scripture is a question to Job from God that resonated with me in reading Job 39. In the post “Precious Part of His Creation”, one thought shared was that we should not depend on information alone but also use our common sense or instincts in making decisions. Some people have called it a gut feeling!
