He Saves

Hello, God has given me something in Job 5:15 which says,

“He saves the needy from the sword in their mouth;
    he saves them from the clutches of the powerful.”

Eliphaz: Eliphaz continued talking to Job. He went on to say basically that if he was Job then he would appeal to the Lord. He said in the verse above that God saves the needy from the sword in their mouth. He told Job that God saves, and He performs wonders. Eliphaz was right, in this case. God does save. Eliphaz also said pretty much that those who are corrected by God are blessed. He named several things that God did/does.

Christians: Christians are like sheep in God’s flock. Jesus is our good Shepherd, and He leads us to still waters, and green pastures. But unbelievers are like goats who are fed trash. But, if you are an unbeliever, and you come to Christ, then He will save you. He can make You into a sheep. He is mighty to save, and He will save you. So, just come to Christ. Why not be saved from hell and sins? He is so kind, and He can give you unfathomable joy, unlike that you’ve ever experienced before. Satan may seem to offer good fruit, but that turns sour. When you accept Jesus into your life, it may hurt to destroy the sin, but He can give you joy like you’ve never seen before. He can love you more than anyone else. So, why wouldn’t you want to come to Him and be saved? Why wouldn’t someone want to come to Christ and live? He will purify you, and He will clean your heart. Just come to Him, and be saved by His saving grace. Be rescued by His mercy. He will save you.

What to do: Here is one thing that we are to do as Christians: Stand firm in Christ. Once Christ has saved us, Satan will do everything he is allowed to do to try to get you out of God’s hand. But, the thing is, that no one and nothing can ever take us from God’s hand if we are truly believing in Him as our savior. But, the temptation will be strong. So, let us put on the armor of God (Ephesians 6:11). Let’s stand firm in God, and go to Him to find strength. Let’s flee to Him.

God: God is so good, He is so loving and kind. He gave His own son for us. Let’s praise His name. Jesus gave His own life to be the perfect atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world. Let’s give thanks to Him, and rejoice in Him. Let’s love Him and give thanks to Him. God has done so much for us, so let us be thankful, not grumble. God has loved us so much, He has saved us from our sins even though we didn’t deserve it, He has given us His Holy-Spirit, and He has let us talk to Him. So let’s give thanks.

Application: How does Job 5:15 apply to us? Eliphaz was telling Job that God saves the needy from the sword in their mouths; he saves them from the clutches of the evil. Jesus also saved us from the clutches of Satan. He has saved us from sins. He took our punishment, and He saved us from the power of Satan. He has given us His Holy Spirit, and He saved us from sins. Eliphaz said basically if He was Job then He would appeal to God. But, for us Jesus already did that by being the sacrifice for us, and saving us from sins. He died on the Cross for us, and rose again on the third day.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You for giving Your son for us. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to rejoice in You. Please help me to walk and talk with You more. Please help me to grow in You, and be more like You. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Thank You for saving me. Please help me not to be proud. Thank You for blessing me so much. Please help me to be more thankful. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
