I have been reading the book of Job, for me to know Job’s life, how he endured all sufferings, how he managed to stay faithful even if everything has been taken away from him.
Job 34:31-32 says:
Job, you should tell God that you are guilty and promise to do better, Then ask Him to point out what you did wrong so you won’t do it again.
What lessons and principles is God teaching me from this passage?
I think God is teaching me to admit my mistakes, shortcomings as a mom and wife, things I’ve done that have hurt other people, my bad habits that I am still doing again and again, procrastinating on many things, and, not focusing on growing more for the glory of God. To dwell more on His presence, asking Him the things that He wants me to do, listening more to His voice and reading the bible more.
How is it relevant and applicable in my daily lives?
This passage is applicable in my daily life because I am not a perfect person, and admitting God my mistakes and asking Him what I need to do to be a better person. Better in a sense that I am becoming more like Him. Everyday, I know that my relationship with Him will be more personal, I will be able to change my perception of Him. Perception of Him being a God who scolds whenever I had done something wrong, and, that He would bless me only if I had done something good. I am changing that perception, because now I know that my God is a God who:
Keeps His promises, will never leave us nor forsake us, is more than enough, will supply all our needs , who is rich, is able and willing to sacrifice.
And so, everyday I can tell Him all my worries, fears, and, many more, because I know that He is always ready to listen and assure me that everything will be alright, that He will always be there for me no matter what happens, and that the peace and joy that I had been longing for will be given to me because of His grace and love for me.
How about you, what is your reflection for this day?
