Words As Wind

Hello, God has given me something in Job 6:26 which says,

“Do you mean to correct what I say,
    and treat my desperate words as wind?

Job: Job replied to Eliphaz unhappily. Eliphaz’s words did not cheer Job up. Job asked in the verse above if Eliphaz meant to correct what Job said, and treat Job’s desperate words as the wind. He said that he wished God would let loose his hand, and kill Job. He didn’t want to live, and Eliphaz did not help making him feel any better. Job still wanted to die. Even if Eliphaz’s words were correct (at some points), they didn’t help Job.

Christians: Christians have been saved by sin. We are no longer in bondage to sin. We are free. but unbelievers are not. They are lost in their sins. If you are an unbeliever then why not come to Christ. Why not be saved by Him. Why not be set free from your chains of sin? Christ died on the cross for us. That is the key. Jesus has given us believers the key, and if You come to Christ then Christ will unlock your chains of sins. So, why not come to Him? Why not experience love and joy like you never have before? God will love you more than any other person, thing, or human being. He will give you love, and He will save you from sins. He will give you strength to stand firm against the evil one. So, why wouldn’t anyone want to come to Christ? Why wouldn’t someone want to be saved from sin and hell? He died on the cross for you and me, so if you are not believing in Christ, then why don’t you come to Him today and be saved from sins? Christ is mighty to save!

What to do: Here is one thing that we are to do as Christians: Share the Gospel. Others still have chains of sin on, and we have the Good news of the Gospel. So, let’s share the Gospel with them, and if they come to Christ, then Christ will save them. So, let’s help others to see Christ and what He did for us. Also, let’s remember what Jesus did for us. He died on the cross, and then He rose again, triumphant over the grave. Let’s remember that. Let’s help others to see and remember what Jesus did for us.

God: God is so good. He gave His son for us. Jesus gave His own life for us. Let’s give thanks to Him, and rejoice in Him. Let’s praise Him for all that He has done for us. Let’s thanks Him for saving us, rejoice in Him for rising again, and Praise Him for giving us the Holy-Spirit. Let’s do what we were designed to do, and worship Him. He is the one and only God. Let us give our all to Him. Let’s praise Hims with all of our hearts, souls, minds, and strength. Thank You, Jesus!

Application: How does Job 6:26 apply to us? Eliphaz might have treated Job’s words “as wind”, but God listened. God listened to the cries of His people, and He sent a savior for us. He listens to us (1 John 4:6). He will listen to us if we cry out to Him. Sometimes people will not listen to us, or care about us, but God listens to us, and He cares about us. He gave His own son for us, He loves us. He  actually cares about us. He loves us. Let’s praise Him! He listens to our cries.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving Your own son for us. Thank You for listening to me. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to draw close to You. Please help me to grow in You, and be more like You. Please help me to walk and talk with You more. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Thank You for saving me. Thank You for dying on the Cross for me. Please help me not to be proud. Please strengthen me in You. Thank You for blessing me, and for loving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


God listens, 1 John 4:6,

“We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us.(A) This is how we recognize the Spirit[a] of truth(B) and the spirit of falsehood.(C)”

Beginning verse, Job 6:26,

“Do you mean to correct what I say,
    and treat my desperate words as wind?

 Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
