Day 160 of the podcast, reading Job 39-42 NET, read along at:

This is day 160 of our journey.

God continues to speak to his servant Job. He questions Job about the vastness of creation (does Job know about every creature?). The Lord then brags about the power of Behemoth and Leviathon, two mighty creatures that no man can tame. Twice, Job has the opportunity to respond and he does so with humility and contrition. Job recognizes that he was speaking without knowledge. In the end, God turns to the three friends and condemns them for speaking lies to Job. He commands that they make an offering to him through Job. After this, God chooses to bless Job again, he receives double the wealth that he had at the start as well as another ten children. Job continues to walk before God in integrity!

Join me in Job 39-42 to marvel at the awesome power of God, and recognize our place before him.
