Job’s friends discussed why Job had hard times. Then Job defended himself. And then…then…God spoke up! He talked about who He is and what He does. After that He spoke directly to Job and told him to man up!
This is so great! I respect Job for his godly life but God got firm with him!
Why doesn’t anyone ever post this verse on social media! In fact I’ve never even heard it spoken from a preacher in the decades I’ve been going to church! I suppose Dr. David Jeremiah would speak of it because he scours the Scriptures Or Bill Scheer of Guts Church would because he wants men to man up to godliness
Then the Lord said to Job,
2 “Do you still want to argue with the Almighty?
You are God’s critic, but do you have the answers?”
3Then Job replied to the Lord,4 “I am nothing—how could I ever find the answers?
I will cover my mouth with my hand.
5 I have said too much already.
I have nothing more to say.”
6 Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind:
7 “Brace yourself like a man,
because I have some questions for you,
and you must answer them.
8 “Will you discredit my justice
and condemn me just to prove you are right?
9 Are you as strong as God?
Can you thunder with a voice like his?
10 All right, put on your glory and splendor,
your honor and majesty.
11 Give vent to your anger.
Let it overflow against the proud.
12 Humiliate the proud with a glance;
walk on the wicked where they stand.
13 Bury them in the dust.
Imprison them in the world of the dead.
14 Then even I would praise you,
for your own strength would save you.
