Re:Verse passage – Job 9:32-35 (day seven)
If you haven’t read the entire context of our passage, go and start at the beginning of chapter 9 and read through the end. Look at how he began this poem. It is clear that Job has a very healthy fear of the Lord. The first 24 verses are all about God. Here are a few of my favorites:
“It is God who removes the mountains”
“It is He who shakes the earth from its place”
“It is He who does great things, the unfathomable”
Do you start your pryers like this? Most of us don’t. We tend to cut to the chase and thank God for what He has done, or we skip straight to supplication and ask Him to do things for us. Starting with praise or adoration isn’t for God, it is for us. Spending time telling God who He is to us, helps our heart and minds understand more clearly the gravity of the thanks and requests that we are bringing to Him. Give it a try. Spend the next few minutes just filling in this sentence; God, You are _________.
