Powerless

Hello, God has given me something in Job 26:2 which says,

““How you have helped the powerless!(A)
    How you have saved the arm that is feeble!(B)”

Job: This is Job talking. I think he is talking to God. He is saying that God has helped the powerless, and saved the arm of the feeble. He said the dead were deep in anguish, and those that lived beneath and in the waters. Job names several things that God did. But, he also said that God helped the powerless, and saved the arm that is feeble. How? What did God do back then that would qualify as “saving the arm of the feeble”. God was letting Job be tested, does that sound like saving the arm of the feeble? I think that Job was pointing forward, to a time much, much, farther in history.

Christians: Christians have been saved by Christ’s death on the cross. We are no longer stuck in our sins. But, unbelievers are still in their sins. They still need to be set free. If you are an unbeliever, then why don’t you come to Christ? Why don’t you come to Him, and be saved from sins? He is mighty to save, so be saved by Him! He is Christ, the savior who gave His own life to save me and you, so come to him, accept Him. Reach out, and He will lift you up out of the sea of your sins. He will lovingly lift you up, and save you from your sins! So, be saved by Christ, and rejoice that He has saved you. He is the one who will save you, and love you, and make You His sheep. Why wouldn’t someone want to come to the one who will save them?

What to do: Here is one thing that we are to do as Christians: Help others. There are still more who are in need of THE savior. So, let’s not hog the Good news, or grow faint in our faith, let’s share the Gospel with others, so that they may see Christ, and live. Imagine that there are millions of boats out on a huge ocean, trying to make it to shore. They either don’t know, or don’t want to believe that there is only one way. They want to take their own way, instead of trusting the lighthouse. We have made it to shore, but some don’t see the light, let’s help them to see the light!

God: God is so good, He has given His own son for us. He has loved us so much. Let’s worship Him with all of our hearts! Let’s praise Him! Jesus gave His own life for us on the cross! Let’s give glory to Him! Let’s praise Him with all of us! Let’s love Him with all of our hearts! He is the savior, who has given His life as the atoning sacrifice (1 John 2:2), to save everyone. So, let’s praise Him! Thank You, Jesus!

Application: How does Job 26:2 apply to us? Job said that He saved the feeble arms. Job was right, we were feeble, and weak in our sins. We were bound to die. But, Jesus came, and He strengthen our arms, and gave His life, saving us, and making us strong, and pure in Him! He has saved us, and strengthened us, and made us strong in Him, when we deserved to die. He made the weak strong, the empty full, the dying living, the dirty pure, and the powerless powerful, by giving His own life for us on the cross! Thank You, Jesus! He has saved us!

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for blessing me so much. Thank You for giving Your son for us. Thank You for making me clean. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Thank You for strengthening me in You. Please help me to love You more, and draw close to You. Please help me to grow in You, be more like You, and walk with You more. Please help me to not be proud, but talk with You daily. Please help me to rejoice in You. Please send a revival. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
