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:

“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?

    Elihu did have a few things right. He aptly described the immeasurable greatness of God. However, God is not so high and mighty that he has removed himself from each of us. He is most attentive to our comings and goings and our actions do give him joy or sorrow accordingly. I wonder where he received his theology degree?
