Daily Bible Podcast Day 294 – Job 9-10, Acts 13-14

Scripture:
“He is not a mere mortal like me that I might answer him,
that we might confront each other in court.” ~Job 9:32

Observation:
Job is talking about how God isn’t subject to criticism the way we are. Job goes at quite a length to demonstrate the futility of arguing with God or questioning His justice. Job seems to be saying that none of us have any right to question or be angry at God.

Application:
I’ve questioned God’s motives and the things He’s allowed to happen before. This verse is a reminder that there’s no reason to do this. What are my feelings compared to God’s perfection? God owns everything, set everything in place, determines its purpose and motion, and then somehow I think that I have any right to question Him?

Prayer:
Father, I don’t always understand why things happen the way they do. There’s a lot that doesn’t seem right to me about the world. Help me to suck it up, move on, and give You the honor and glory You deserve, even when I feel slighted by life. Help me to understand, but if I don’t understand, help me to accept and get on with Your purpose for me anyway.

Daily Bible Podcast Day 037 – Leviticus 1-3, Acts 13

December 7, 2012 in Podcasts

Scripture:
“‘Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.'” ~Acts 13:38-39

Observation:
Through Jesus, we can be set free from our sin. This is something that can’t be done merely by following a bunch of rules. “Everyone who believes is set free…”

Application:
The thing I don’t exactly understand is what does it mean to be “set free from sin.” Does it mean that I should stop sinning? Because I’m pretty sure that I believe (unless I’m missing something) but I don’t always feel set free from my sin. I wish I knew what I was missing.

Prayer:
Father, I believe. Set me free from my sin. I know that following a set of rules won’t do it for me. Set me free.
