GOD’S SUSTAINING POWER

Job 33:4

 

“The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

 

 

LESSON

 

Elihu’s request that Job hear him out. Elihu was more courteous and sympathetic than the three friends, as seen in his addressing Job by name, which the friends did not do. “Yourselves” in verse 5 should read “yourself,” since Elihu is addressing Job individually. Elihu next summarized what Job had said. “According to Elihu, Job’s position is that he is faultless, and that God’s afflictions of him are therefore expressions of groundless hatredand enmity, and that (3) God refuses to answer his complaints of unjust treatment.

Human life is transcendently precious from the services it may render to God in the advancement of His glory. Man was not created as a piece of guess work, flung into existence as a waif. There is purpose in the creation of every human being. What is the purpose of life? Man was created to be happy, to be holy! That is the double aim of life , duty first, then happiness as the consequence. The highest style of manhood and womanhood is to be attained by consecration to the Son of God.

 

Memory Verse: 1 Corinthians 1:17
