Pausing to Celebrate

Prayer: O Lord, it is good to give thanks to You, to sing praises to Your name. You are the Most High, the only One who can love me perfectly. As I open Your Word, help me better understand who You are and who I am in light of who You are. Hold back the distractions around me as I open this letter from You. Stir my heart. Change me. I love You, Lord.

Editor’s note for our Job 36:24-33 reading: In this chapter, Elihu was presuming to speak for God and wrongly concluded that the hardship Job faced was judgment of sin, and yet Elihu got a few things right, including declaring God’s greatness and how unsearchable are His ways (vs. 26). Hard things should draw us to the One who knows our days and desires good for us. As theologian Charles Spurgeon once said, “I have learned to kiss the wave that strikes me against the Rock of Ages.”

One thought on “Pausing to Celebrate

  1. Thank you so much for the study on the Sabbath. I have realized that this gift from God comes as a season of my life, not just a day in the week. My husband and I find ourselves with lots of rest time. We no longer have to rush to a job or struggle with day to day raising children. We can now pick those things that require work. I have been touched more and more with the conviction to set aside more time everyday to Sabbath with the Lord. Enjoy this time in life to rest in him and thank him for this season oh my life.
    I’m looking foreword to the next study🙏
