Rely On An Ox?

Hello God has given me something in Job 39:11 which says,

“Will you rely on it for its great strength?(A)
Will you leave your heavy work to it?”

The Lord: The Lord is still talking here. He asked if the person he was talking to would put his trust in an ox. God also asked if whoever he was talking to (Elihu or Job) did the things that only God could do. If there was any pride in the person He was talking to, then they would see how great God is. We can’t do a lot of the things that God can do. God was taking the subject off of Job and how wrong he was, and on how great He (God) is.

Christians have been saved from sins. We are no longer in bondage. Christ has saved us, and we can put our trust in Him, and we can rely on Him for strength. He is our strength, and with Him the load we carry is light (Mathew 11:29-30). Though we do carry a burden, it is very light, because He is carrying it with us. But, unbelievers still need help. They are stuck in sin. So, if you are in sin, then come to Christ, and He will save you, and make your burden light.

God: God has saved us, so let’s give thanks to Him. Let’s praise Jesus because He has loved us. Let’s worship Him with all of our hearts. Let’s rejoice in Him, and praise Him. Let’s love Him, and give our lives to Him, because He has given His life for us.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You for giving Your son for me. Please help me to grow strong in You. Please help me to love You more. Please help me not to be proud. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse(s):

Burden is light, Mathew 11:29-30,

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,(A) for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.(B) 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”(C)”

Beginning verse, Job 39:11,

“Will you rely on it for its great strength?(A)
Will you leave your heavy work to it?”

Peace and Love, Joy Cleveland
