We Know Truth


Job was getting an earful from his friends. They were coming up with reasons as to why he was going through his trials. They were blaming him of sin. They were giving their opinion as if it were fact. 

In the midst of all of this Job says to them that he just wants to hear from God. He wants to only be judged by him. He knows his own heart. He knows God knows his heart. In that he can find comfort. 

Later when Job stands before God he is found acceptable. When the friends were judged they were reprimanded for speaking falsely to Job. 

People’s opinions can be harsh. They can be presented as facts–even when they’re untrue. But we know the truth and answer to God alone, who is Truth. Remember that when you are falsely accused. Keep walking blamelessly.

Scripture found:

Job 23 & 42 

Choose Life

Psalm 135:15-18

Exodus 32:1-6

In Moses’ absence Aaron fashioned a golden calf for the Israelites to worship. He told them that this would be the god that they would serve.

The thought is mind boggling. People were actually praying to this statue. It couldn’t see. It couldn’t hear. It wasn’t living! How ridiculous it seems.

Houses.

Cars.

Toys.

Money.

None of this is living either. Still yet some people choose to serve it. They become obsessed with it. Dedicating their lives to it.

To some people this type of material has become their idol.

But be glad because you have chosen a God that is alive. The God that lives and reigns forever more. He hears our prayers. He looks upon us as though we are the apple of his eye. He speaks to us. He is alive and well. He has always been and always will be. He is the great I Am.

Serving lifeless idols will get you nowhere. Serving the One True God will afford you life most abundant with an eternity spent with Him.
