Dread Fall On You

Hello, God has given me something Job 13:11 which says,

“Would not his splendor terrify you?
    Would not the dread of him fall on you?”

Fall on you: Job was talking to his 3 friends. He said that they were worthless physicians. He said that wisdom for them would be silence. He asked if they would speak wickedly on God’s behalf. He asked if they could deceive him like a mortal. He asked “Would not his splendor terrify you?”. He asked, “Would not the dread of him fall on you?”. He asked God to grant him two things (Job 13:21-22). He said that man waists away like something rotten, like a garment eaten by moths. He asked if God would torment a windblown leaf. He said that God wrote down many bitter things against him. Clearly Job’s friends had not helped much. He said they were worthless physicians. He asked if anyone could bring charges against him. If so, he said he would be quiet and die. Job used to live happily, but he was being tested. He asked God why he was going through that. Job now had no kids, a wife that told him to curse God and die, and three friends who he thought were worthless physicians! Life was hard for Job.

Christians: Christians have been saved by Christ. We have been set free from sins, into God’s pasture. Unbelievers are still in their chains of sins. If you are an unbeliever, then why not come to Christ? Why not be saved from sins? Jesus is mighty to save, and He will love you and save you from your sins. So, why not come Christ? Why not be saved by the only savior of sins? Why not come to Him and be saved from sins? Why not be set free from sins, into God’s pasture?

What to do: Here is one thing that we are to as Christians: Help others to see Christ. Others are still in bondage to sins. We know of Christ, and how He has the power to save. Let’s help them to see Christ. Let’s help them to see the savior. If they see Christ, and come to Him, them He will save them. He will life them up out of the water of sins, and put them into his pasture. Let’s help them to come to Christ. Christ is the one who saves them. If He comes into their heart, then they will be saved.

God: God has done so much for us. Let’s worship Him with all of us. Jesus gave His own life for us! Let’s rejoice in Him. Let’s praise Him. Let’s give thanks for what He has done for us. Let’s come to Him, and praise Him with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength. He has done so much. Jesus gave His own life as a perfect, holy, sinless, atoning, sacrifice, to atone for our sins. He saved us by giving His life. Worship Him! God gave His son, so let’s praise Him!

Application how does Job 13:11 apply to us? Job asked, “Would not his splendor terrify you? Would not the dread of him fall on you?” Because God was perfect, and they were mere man, they would be terrified to see God. We deserved to die. But, Jesus gave His own life for us on the Cross. He saved us by dying for us. Job asked for a mediator, there was none. He wanted a mediator, so that He could talk to God. But, now, Jesus is mediating for us, and He saved us.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving us. Thank You for saving me. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to draw close to You. Please help me to grow in You, and grow more like You. Please help me to walk with You more, and talk with You more. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Thank You for sending Your son to save me. Thank You for not letting dread fall on me, but on you at the Cross. Please strengthen me in You, and help me to stand firm in you. Please help me not to be proud. Thank You for blessing me so much. In Jesus name, Amen.
