Job 8-11:20

In the old TV series, Dragnet, one of the main characters use to say, “Just the facts “M’am,” just the facts.” But as we continue reading in Job we will find that facts and truth are not same. Job and his friends are still thinking that God is the one who has brought on this calamity. Job is trying to prove that he is righteous and His friends are trying to prove to Job that he is sinful.

One of the hardest things to do is to try to convince someone who has all ready made up their mind that you are right and or they are wrong. You can wear yourself out trying to do that.


I Corinthians 15:1-28

The very foundation of the Christian faith, is Jesus’ death, burial and Resurrection. Paul puts it like this,

And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. (1 Corinthians 2:1-2 KJV)

We are so caught up in “living” we forget what life is all about. So too with our Christian walk, in trying to be “Christians” we forget what being a Christian is all about. It is Jesus Christ and Him crucified. It is all about what He has done, not what we have done. When we lose sight of that then we wind up on the road of “strange” doctrine, we wind up arguing over the incidentals and forgetting the foundation, Jesus’ Death, Burial and Resurrection. I believe that message is what Paul is trying to drill into the heads, hearts and minds of all those who say they call on the Name of Christ.

Remember this letter is one of correcton.


Psalm 38:1-22

Someone once asked the question, “Do you have brains?” “How do you know, are you sure?” Well we would say because I can reason and think I know that I have brains. Then the person asking the question said, “If you have brains, when was the last time you felt them?”

Just because you feel a certain way, does not mean that what you feel, or don’t feel is truth.

The title of this Psalm says, “A psalm of David, to bring us to the LORDs remembrance.” God has said He will never leave us or forsake us, (AMP) 1Ki_8:57; Pro_9:6; Heb_13:5; but we constantly find ourselves reminding God what He has said. Truthfully, we are really not reminding God of anything, who we really are reminding is ourselves. We are speaking to ourselves, mediating on the Words God has given us to remind us of what He said, by reminding Him of what He told us to remind Him with, His Words. (Hope this makes sense)


Proverbs 21:28-29

I think the wicked put up a bold front because they are trying to convince everyone, including themselves, that they are right. If enough volume and bravado is added to his words and body language, then he can gain what they want by intimidation and brut force. He operates under the false assumption that “Might makes Right.”

Grace and peace,

God is masterful (isn't He always) in the way He handles Job in this volume.

I don't enjoy being a "Job" but love the consistency of our Father. I need to be more like that.
