Job’s Confession & Repentance – Job 42

15 09 2017

bible_jobThis is the second post in our series on Job 42. Last time we began by setting the stage for Job 42 as we looked at God’s response in Job 40 and 41, revealing the sovereignty of our God. Today we will look at the first part of Job 42, verses 1 – 6, which in many versions is titled “Job’s Confession and Repentance”

Here stands Job in chapter 42 speaking to his sovereign God. In the first verse Job acknowledges no one can oppose the plans and purpose of God. Job my_confession_its_not_what_you_think_217730405 (2)continues the conversation as he confesses he is ignorant in speaking of things he could never understand.  He then continues confessing he did not know God the way he does now. Finally, in verse six Job repents as he sees himself as he truly is, dust and ashes in the face of a sovereign God.

How often do we defend ourselves (as Job did in the earlier chapters) until that moment when our sovereign God gives insight and understanding to what is taking place in our lives? Yes, sometimes it hurts when God speak truth bringing understanding to our situation, so like Job, must choose to confess our ignorant and repent for trying to defend ourselves instead of leaving that job to our sovereign God.

Join me next time as we look at Job’s friends.

Blessings & Complete Joy!

Transition: Believe it or NOT part 1 – Mary

22 06 2017

Welcome to our topic Transition! Today we will look at the transition of Mary, the mother of Jesus recorded in Luke 1:26 – 38, as she receiving the news of the coming savior.

First, the angel of the Lord signals the beginning of Mary’s transition as she hears the words, “Greeting you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” It is recorded that she was greatly or deeply troubled, other translations used the word disturbed. Transition as it begins is often alarming and can deeply trouble or disturb us. This is normal reaction and we need to remember to respond rather than to react.

Second the angel encouraged her, “not to be afraid and that she had found favor with God”. Often when facing transition, we like Mary, look at it as a bad thing and we become afraid. Encouragement as we face the idea of transition helps use all!

Third, we see Mary questioning God choice; does he really know what HE is doing? Transition causes us to question what God is up to, even if like Mary who knew the scriptures, we know God is going to do something. Our question still remains, but are we really who God wants to use?

Final we see the angel sharing the news about her relative Elizabeth who was also pregnant. Mary found the comfort to come into agreement with God’s plans and later direction in how to navigate the pregnancy, going to her relative’s home.

Remember as God begins a new thing in your life, HE will bring you guidance and encouragement!

Blessings & Complete Joy!
