Today's Reading: Job 25

Please read Job 25 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Job 25:
Job answered: "Well, you've certainly been a great help to a helpless man!
You came to the rescue just in the nick of time!
What wonderful advice you've given to a mixed-up man!
What amazing insights you've provided!
Where in the world did you learn all this?
How did you become so inspired?
Job 26: 1-4(The Message)

Then Job replied:

“How you have helped the powerless!
How you have saved the arm that is feeble!
What advice you have offered to one without wisdom!
And what great insight you have displayed!
Who has helped you utter these words?
And whose spirit spoke from your mouth? Job 26: 1-4(NIV)

What I received from Jesus today is: Thank you very much! shut up please!

The beginning of this chapter shows what Job wanted to say to his three friends, "Thank you very much! Shut up please!" It's a kind of funny! Job used three words namely "helped", "saved" and "advice" to tell them that was the three things they thought they were doing to Job. They could neither help, save nor advice Job. In fact, they just kept on saying something on behalf of God and presuming that they knew God's purpose to Job's situation. He questioned them of whether they knew who helped them to say those words and whose breath spoke from their mouth. God was beyond their human understanding and Job used those things that are clearly known to God but are hidden from human understanding, like the dead, death and the wonders of God's creation.

Have you intentionally or unintentionally been in that kind of situation before? Well, either in Job's role or Job's friends role. Remember, we are not God, don't judge, shut up please, thank you very much!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us not to help, save or advice thinking that we know your purpose and speaking on your behalf. Help us to know when do we need to shut up and wait for you to speak. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
