God's Man | Job 29 | Following His Light
Following His Light
I am reading through Job 29 again as I am seeking God for what it means to truly be God's Man. I have always felt that Job 29 is for men the way that Proverbs 31 is for women. It paints a picture of what it means to be a man who recognizes who God is and that he belongs to Him. Here are verses 1-3
2 “How I long for the months gone by,This is the first thing that Job mentions about being God's Man. Job knew who God was and understood that God knows what is best. He used this wisdom to navigate through the world that was around him. Do you truly trust that God has an answer for every situation that you find yourself in? I wish that I could say that I have this one locked down but honestly I cannot. On the big things I lean in to God but for the small stuff I find that I rely on my own strength. This is where things can get out of whack. It is in the incremental decisions where I can get off course. Time to get my eyes fixed firmly on God.
for the days when God watched over me,
3 when his lamp shone upon my head
and by his light I walked through darkness! - Link
My prayer for you today is that you would allow God to be the lamp that lights your way through this dark world. Let Him guide your steps.
