DCLM Daily Manna 27th June 2022 Devotional for Monday
TOPIC: Rest, God Is In Control
Text: Job 21:22-34
22. Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high.
- One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet.
His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow.
And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.
They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them.
Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which ye wrongfully imagine against me.
For ye say, Where is the house of the prince? and where are the dwelling places of the wicked?
Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,
That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.
Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay him what he hath done?
Yet shall he be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb.
The clods of the valley shall be sweet unto him, and every man shall draw after him, as there are innumerable before him.
How then comfort ye me in vain, seeing in your answers there remaineth falsehood?
KEY VERSE: “Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high.” – (Job 21:22)
DCLM Daily Manna 27th June 2022 Devotional MESSAGE:
Things are not always what we expect them to be. Irrespective of how prepared we are to face life, situations may arise that would severely test our staying power, and prove how resolute we are in standing with God.
None was ever tested in history like Job. He suffered a deluge of calamities and disasters. Yet, in spite of the misfortunes that befell him, he never doubted God’s sovereignty and superior understanding. He recognised that God is the ultimate judge of all men, including the mighty.
Men may work hard, prosper greatly, live the good life by the standards of the world, and die peacefully in ripe old age. But they would end up in the dust like every other man. Indeed, the wicked who are mighty in this life would suffer eternal destruction for their evil deeds.
What bothered Job most though were the wrong thoughts and devices of his friends, who concluded that he was suffering because of his sins. In frustration, he queried them: “How then comfort ye me in vain, seeing in your answers there remaineth falsehood?”
When troubles arise in life, especially those that are inexplicable, we must realise that it is a time to show our true attitude towards God. We must never yield to the temptation to become angry and bitter at God and everyone else, or relapse into self-pity. We must continue to trust God. Even when those who should know better wrongfully accuse us, we should understand that ultimate vindication awaits those who trust in God. So, when you are tried, ensure you shine forth as gold.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When God is with you, storms should not alarm you.
