Today you should read: Job 36

As we’ve been reading book of Job for the past few weeks, we’ve seen into Job’s heart as he’s struggled through some of the worst tragedy that could strike a person.

  • Loss of family
  • Loss of his wealth
  • Loss of health
  • Spouse tells him to curse God and die
  • Friends confused about what is happening around him

I can only imagine how difficult this must be.  Job’s friend Elihu is defending God’s honor and ways to Job in this chapter (v. 2-3).  While doing so, Elihu reminds us of the greatness of our God. Allow God’s Word to encourage you today:

  • God is mighty (v.5a) – He’s mighty in power and understanding (v.5)
  • God is fair (v.5b) – He does not despise anyone
  • God is just (v.6)
  • God cares for the innocent (v.7)
  • God convicts the sinning Christian and leads them to repentance (v.8-12)
  • God cares for the suffering (v.15)
  • God is wise (v.22b)
  • God is Sovereign (v.23)
  • God is greater than we can understand (v.26a)
  • God is infinite – He’s outside of time and space (v.26b)
  • God cares for the earth (v.27-33)

Take a moment and recognize the majesty of God today.  Realize that God is God and you aren’t. Enjoy that. Honor Him as Lord in your life today.
