Scripture

Job 42:1-6

1Then Job replied to the Lord:

2“I know that you can do all things;

no purpose of yours can be thwarted.

3You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’

Surely I spoke of things I did not understand,

things too wonderful for me to know.

4“You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak;

I will question you,

and you shall answer me.’

5My ears had heard of you

but now my eyes have seen you.

6Therefore I despise myself

and repent in dust and ashes.”

Observation

My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.

When we see God, we see how very wrong we sometimes are about Him. When we do see Him as He is, we are ashamed of ourselves—our words, our attitudes, our actions.

Application

I want to actively seek to see God and not just to hear about Him.

Prayer

My Father,

I confess again how wrongly I have perceived You. As I  look into Your Word I see Who You are. Again, You are my Creator, the Creator of all that is. I fearfully admit You have the right to use me as You will. You are good and I will trust You. Help me to see You and hear You in truth and follow closely after You.

I love You,

me
