Joyful Thursday my friends.
God’s instructions should be flowing inside if you.
At the end of Job 40:5, Job’s attention is locked on God and the eye of the storm is moving out. The whirlwind is about to shift gears and grab you by the heart.
When the eye of a hurricane moves off its destination, the winds changes. Things that flew one way, now fly the other.
It’s time to make an adjustment. Lift your head. Turn your eyes from what you did see- to what you can see.
Job 40:6 Then answered the Lord unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
(The whirlwind is on the move)
Job 40:7 Gird up your lions now like a man; I demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
God accepted Job’s answer. God accepts a repentful heart.
However, now he expects-demand. And he expects you to submit and take action -declare.
God already testified about his expectations of obedience. Now he testifies about his authority.
Job 40: 8 Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?
No. Your not challenging the judgement of God. Your not condeming him. Your not establishing your own righteousness and or even yet comparing it more over than God.
The instructions and obedience and authority is clear.
Now who are you declaring to? The authority of God.
Job 40: 9 -13 Look at how God challenges Job and the reader with factual comparisons. You can’t do creation as God. You’re not like El. You can’t speak with a voice like God.
You see God destinguishes under whose authority things are possible, who set the parameters and how ordinances work. You can not dictate it.
His instruction is perfect under his sovereign authority. And going with the flow doesn’t satisfy God instruction for you.
God Loves you. He knows how you are created and everything about you. And His Love is an action and solid. Not a feeling or loose.
God believes in you and he is ready for you and he’s telling you how to be ready for him.
So by believing in God is to admit who you are and your action is to be who God made you to be by changing who you made yourself to be. The best Love you can show God is to change to who God intended you to be.
Now here comes the best part of our Joyful day.
With the fullness of the Glory of God he gives affirmation of His love for you with His Promise.
Comfirmed by the Birth Death and Resurrection of the Son Jesus Christ. Yahshua.
Job 40:14 Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.
God already knows man is vile. He wants to cleanse you and He confesses to you a way.
For you, by declaring, confessing, under the Lord you are vile, believing in his ordinance and authority set before you because of Love. He will also confess unto thee; he has saved you by giving His only begotten Son for you.
As the storm heads out God doesn’t leave nor does he forsake you.
Follow along Friday with more instructions for Job and us.
