Chapter-a-Day Job 40

Storm eye. God addressed Job next from the eye of the stormJob 40:6a (MSG)

Although it seems a long time ago already, last week's vacation was really good for me. Our trip to London back in March was exciting and adventurous, but the time change, culture change and hectic schedule left me feeling tired and worn out. Last week was an easy pace. We were surrounded by good friends and enjoyed great conversation. We had leisurely meals and spent hours each day relaxing in or by the water. I felt my physical, spiritual and emotionals batteries slowly recharge.

One of the interesting things I've discovered on this "chapter-a-day" journey is how God speaks to my heart at different places and different times in different ways. In the previous chapters, God spoke to Job in the midst of the storm. Even in hectic, fast paced times of life God has things to say to us, and things for us to learn. But, there are also those blessed "eye of the storm" moments when everything seems to still. In the quiet peacefulness there are things God has to whisper to our souls, if we will only choose to listen.

As Jesus said, "Those who have ears to hear, let them hear."

God, give me ears that are open to what you have to say in both the storm and its' eye.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Job 40”

  1. 8-14 “Do you presume to tell me what I’m doing wrong?
    We do cry out to God at times and try to tell Him that He’s not directing our life correctly. I know I am guilty of this. Faith is knowing that God’s plan is better for me than my plan. My selfish human heart gets in the way of that most of the time. Today’s passage is a good reminder to focus on what God wants for me.
