Daily Bible Reading: Job 33 – 34
Verse of the Day: Job 34:10 – “Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: Far be it from God, that he should do wickedness, And from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.”
One of the challenges of the book of Job is to decipher that truth from the misuse of these debaters. Much of what is shared in the discourses is true, however, the application of the truth is wrong.
Elihu here reminds us that God is incapable of do evil or committing sin. When evil surrounds us, it is from the Evil One (we have a behind the scenes look in chapters 1 & 2), however, it is important to remember that God is still in ultimate control. When we are enclosed by evil, He has allowed it for His purpose and plan. Again, trust His heart and hand.
Prayer: Today I come trusting You, even though I cannot see or understand the purpose of Your plan, I submit to You. Amen.
