Journey readings:
July 8 – July 13, 2013

by Living Springs Community Church on July 12, 2013

“The Journey” is Living Springs’ commitment to read at least a chapter of the Bible every day. We all follow the same reading schedule so that we can encourage each other along the way. And our pastors post occasional blogs about the readings to instruct and inspire us.

Want to join the Journey? This week’s daily readings are listed below, along with some questions to guide your reading. Sign up for the Journey blog, and you’ll receive the weekly reading schedule in your email inbox!

 Job 33

Of what unrighteousness does Elihu accuse Job?  How does God deal with the righteous who have sinned?  Why does God enlighten the fallen one? 

 Job 34

What character does Job portray when he speaks against God?  How does Elihu uphold God?  What should Job have done before God? 

 Job 35

Who do we hurt by our sins?  For what should Job wait? 

 Job 36

Why has Job received this judgment?  What should Job remember? 

 Job 37

For what are God’s great works used?  Should we speak challengingly to God?  Why has God not answered Job?

Was Elihu really right? I got the impression reading his discourses Elihu was guilty of the pride he accused Job of having. God didn’t include Elihu in the directions He gave for Job’s other 3 friends. Is it possible that God knew Elihu would be unrepentent?
I offer another possibility–what Job forgot to do while he was “ranting,” “complaining,” or having a “pity party,” was acknowledge both the wisdom and the power of God to deliver him. That was what struck me as the greatness of the story of Job–no matter how terrible the circumstances in our lives–we are to acknowledge the greatness of God and His ability to deliver us.
