32He is not a mere mortal like me that I might answer him,
that we might confront each other in court.
33If only there were someone to mediate between us,
someone to bring us together,
34someone to remove God’s rod from me,
so that his terror would frighten me no more.
35Then I would speak up without fear of him,
but as it now stands with me, I cannot.
(Job 9:32-35, NIV)

 

JOB 9-10

DAY 33: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Focus Verses For Today: Job 9:32-35

Today, we continue our journey through the book of Job. Job is speaking to the Lord about his current situation, his physical suffering, as well as the emotional suffering he experienced by losing his family.

Open your Bibles to Job chapters 9 and 10, asking God in prayer to reveal the true meaning of today’s journey. Read carefully, you don’t want to miss a thing!

 

Job 9-10: In today’s journey, none of Job’s friends speak. Job is pleading to God, or lamenting to himself. Job is struggling, considering how to communicate his case to God? How to convince God that he has not sinned? How to convince God that His wrath against Job was a mistaken? Job rightly believed that he was blameless in God’s eyes; so why the anguish? Job, frustrated, begins accusing God of dealing with him unjustly. (Job 9:1-10:22)

 

Today’s focus verse:

 

32He is not a mere mortal like me that I might answer him,
that we might confront each other in court.
33If only there were someone to mediate between us,
someone to bring us together,
34someone to remove God’s rod from me,
so that his terror would frighten me no more.
35Then I would speak up without fear of him,
but as it now stands with me, I cannot.
(Job 9:32-35, NIV)

 

In our focus verse Job says, if only I had an intercessor who could plead my case before God. I am a mere mortal. Job understood that he was powerless before God. Job understood that He did not understand the ways of God. Job knew he needed help. It appears that Job understood the need for a savior, the Savior: Emmanuel. You are like Job - You need a Savior!! Have you recognized that you need a Savior? When was the last time you thought about your need for a Savior?
