Questions for Reflection for Study of Job 40-42

We are nearing the end of our journey through the book of Job with three more chapters to go. We will continue to be focused on the purpose of this blog as we continue to use it in helping us to apply His Word in our life.  I’ve found it to be a great tool in my journey through the Bible and you, my readers are keeping me accountable to daily Bible reading and study.

We live in a busy world with busy schedules and being able to share some thoughts about this journey with others across this world through the Internet is truly a blessing. Questions for Reflection will stimulate thought and offer ideas for applying biblical principles at work, at home, and in all we do.

Here is a link to all the devotionals done so far

Anyone can join in as we journey together.

Also, the concepts presented in God’s Perfect Timing offer ideas for using our time wisely and the lessons of God’s Plan for Us gives a method towards making an impact in the world in which we live. 

The reading plan below will be used to hold me accountable to sharing about God’s word. As I share about my study of the book of Leviticus over the next few weeks, it’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Christ as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day amazing!

Questions for Reflection

Job 40 – What is the effect of God’s first speech on Job? In what areas does God challenge Job’s ability? How have you been convinced of the sovereignty of God? Do we need God’s justice or His mercy?

Job 41 – How does God describe Leviathan whom He has made? Does God explain why He does what He does? Recall those times when you have asked God why? What has God told you about His ways?

Job 42 – Precisely what is Job convinced of regarding God? What confession follows (See 40:3-5)? After this study of Job, what are some ways you can put your new and reinforced knowledge into practice? What are some goals for your future?

Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.

To store up thoughts that are good for the soul, listen to a sermon. Download the free app in the App Store or on Google Play. Look for First Waco.
