5 Minutes a day / 5 Days a week
Job 40:2 & 7-8
"Shall the one who contends with the Almighty correct Him?
He who rebukes God, let him answer it."
"Now prepare yourself like a man;
I will question you, and you shall answer Me:
"Would you indeed annul My judgment?
Would you condemn Me that you may be justified?
If you are like me, then there are times when you seem to forget the awesomeness of God and Who HE really is.
We tend to get caught up in the things of the day or just our life that we spend little time in prayer and meditating on God and His word, and we become comfortable in our walk with the Lord. Which is a good thing, but a bad thing too.
It's good to know that you have a good relationship with the Lord and feel comfortable talking to Him about anything, knowing that God loves you.
But if you get to comfortable, you may tend to take God for granted, like what happens in a marriage. You start to take the other person for granted and even start, unknowingly walking on them.
You don't mean to, but you tend to forget they have feelings too.
We do the same with God and our relationship with Him. We start to take God for granted and even spend less time with Him and what time we do spend with the Lord is not like it used to be.
But there is a cure for this that I guarantee will work.
Part of it is in today's devotional verses.
How did you feel when you read the verses, or should I ask how did you feel about God?
Did it start to remind you of His awesomeness?
I recommend to everyone to read Job chapter 38-41 at least once a week. Do this with no one else around in a quite time during your week.
I know each time I read these chapters in the book of Job, I get excited about the Lord again, just like young people in love. It will be a refreshing of your relationship with the Lord if you do read these four chapters.
Give it a try, what could you lose except that old humdrum feeling you have had lately.
What can you gain? A fresh exciting relationship with the Lord who loves you, even if:
"Or who shut in the sea with doors,
When it burst forth and issued from the womb;
When I said,
'This far you may come, but no farther,
And here your proud waves must stop!'
Job 38:8 & 11
