Shaking His Fist At God

Hello, God has given me something in Job 15:25-26 which says,

“because he shakes his fist at God
and vaunts himself against the Almighty,
26 defiantly charging against him
with a thick, strong shield.”

Eliphaz: Eliphaz replied to Job. He asked Job if he was the first man ever born. He was saying that they knew things too. He asked if Job had a monopoly on wisdom. He asked, ““What are mortals, that they could be pure, or those born of woman, that they could be righteous?” He was saying that man could not be perfect. Alone, man cannot be perfect. So, as far as he knew, Eliphaz was right.

Christians: Christians have been saved from sin. We are no longer stuck in our pit of sins. But, unbelievers are still caught in the trap of sin. They are not trusting in the only one who could save them. If you are an unbeliever, then why not come to Christ and be saved? Why don’t you come to Him, and if you do then He will pick you up and take you to His pasture. He will save you from sins. So, why not come and be loved by Christ? Why not experience God’s love, and His joy (1 Peter 1:8-9). Why wouldn’t someone want to be saved by Christ? Why wouldn’t someone want to be loved. God’s love is more than any man can give. So, come to Christ, and be saved by Him. Let’s say that were (or are) all in the sea of sin. Jesus is the life-boat that has come to save us. We have two options, come to Christ, and be saved, or see if we can swim back to safety, and die. God has destined before time began if we will come to Him. He is the one that saves us.

What to do: Here is one thing that we are to do as Christians: Help unbelievers. Others are still in sins, and they need help. We are not able to save them. But, if we show them the savior, and they come to Him, then He will save them out of their sins. He will lift them out of the stormy seas. He will save them from their sins. So, let’s help them to see Christ, and what He did for us on the cross, so that they can be saved. Jesus gave His own life to save everyone.

God: God is so good. He has loved us so much. He has given His son for us! Let’s lift our voices to Him in praise. Jesus has given His own life for us on the Cross! Let’s worship Him with all of our hearts. Let’s rejoice in Him. Jesus became our sacrifice, so let us praise Him. He is the God of gods, He is worthy of praise and worship. Let’s rejoice in Him. He has given us His Holy-Spirit, His son died for us, and He has loved us. God is worthy of so much more than our praise, but let us praise Him!

Application: How does Job 15:25-26 apply to us? Eliphaz was right. We all shake our fists at God. We were angry at Him, in our sins. But, Jesus gave His own life for us and He saved us from certain death. We may have charged against God, or shaken our fists at God, but He still sent His own son to save us from sins, and now, we are loved by Him. Though we were angry, God saved us. Now, we are freed from sins, and we are loved by God. We have been saved by Him!

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You for giving Your son for me, even if I got angry at you. Please help me not to be angry at you. Please help me to be filled with thankfulness. Please strengthen me in You, and help me to love You more. Please help me to draw close to You, and grow in You. Please help me to be more like You, and not be proud. Thank You for blessing me so much. Please send a revival, so that others will know and love You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse(s):

Joy, 1 Peter 1:8-9

“Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”

Beginning verse, Job 15:25-26,

“because he shakes his fist at God
and vaunts himself against the Almighty,
26 defiantly charging against him
with a thick, strong shield.”

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
