Today's Devotion

From the Book of Job:

Job's reproof of Bildad; his praise to God; his truthfulness; source of wisdom; recalling past wealth.

Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding (Job 28:28).

Bildad had insinuated that Job was an unclean worm who could not be justified with God (25:1-6). But God had already revealed Job's true nature, saying he was perfect (blameless) and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed (shunned) evil (1:1). In the midst of them Job looked beyond all the false insinuations and criticisms to the Source of all wisdom. In the life of a Christian, it is needful to look past the natural at times. We serve a God who is not bound by the rules and guidelines placed on life by this world. We must act as Job did. He knew God was the ultimate Judge. He knew that he must listen to God for correction and direction. Job acknowledged that even though he could not penetrate the veil of mystery surrounding his trials, he still accepted that God was in control. We may not know the Lord's purpose for our lives but we trust that His desire is the best for us. The Word of God provides us with the answers to all our needs.
