1/13/2018 Job Chapters 35-37
In these chapters I find a foreshadowing of the Lords message spoken directly to Job that we will read in Chapters 38-41. Elihu certainly recognizes & describes the omnipotence and power of God.
He also offers us an important lesson in just a few verses when in verses 35:9-11 he states:
9 “People cry out under a load of oppression;
they plead for relief from the arm of the powerful.
10 But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker,
who gives songs in the night,
11 who teaches us more than he teaches the beasts of the earth
and makes us wiser than the birds in the sky?
Do we only “cry out to the Lord” when we are under duress and fail to engage Him in prayer when all is well?
