This Sunday's message: The Song of Zechariah

March 15

Today's Reading: Job 42:1-6

To me, these verses are the heart of the entire book. God has used the suffering of Job to lead him into a much deeper relationship that he had at the beginning of the book. Job had gone from knowing about God (Elohim}  to genuinely knowing the LORD (YHWH).

Interestingly Job still doesn't have the behind the scenes look that we have from the first two chapters of the book. He still has no idea that Satan is behind all his suffering or that God allowed that suffering in order to prove the genuineness of Job's faith and to draw him closer to God. That is a great reminder to us that during hard times we can draw near to God even though we often don't have all the answers to the "why".
