JOB 37-38
DAY 131: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Our journey continues through the book of Job as Elihu concludes his accusations against Job. God speaks!

Before diving into today’s reading, ask God for His understanding of Job 37-38. Read Job 37-38. Let’s journey!

Job and his friends have each made assumptions about God, about how God rules, and about how justice in the world works. These assumptions are revealed throughout this book. Many of these assumptions continue to be held today!

Job 37-38: Job’s friend Elihu, concludes his allegations against Job. Elihu contended that Job was receiving God’s wrath for sin in Job’s life. God then speaks. He asks Job how someone, like Job, without complete knowledge could make a charge or claim against God. God asked Job to explain how Gods’ creation worked: how it was held together. God asked Job is he knew how God provided for the care of all creation. Job could not answer. Job did not know the answer. Then how could Job accuse God of being complicit in Job’s current situation? (Job 37:1-38:41)

Read chapters 37 and 38, and ask yourself these questions: Review the assumption that Job and his friends had made about God. Did God refute them? What assumptions have you made about God and the way He rules in your life? Has God refuted them?
