God Exalts the Humble
26 June 2022 PM – Job 42 – Job2022 – Scott Childs
Introduction: In the horse and buggy days, a man was driving with his wife along a dangerous road. At a very narrow place, the wife became frightened and seized the rein nearest to her. Her husband quickly passed her the other rein and let go. Then more frightened than ever she said, “Oh, don’t you let go!” He answered, “Two people cannot drive one horse; either I must drive or you must.” Then she gave him the reins and he drove safely past the danger.
During Job’s journey of sorrow, he, like that wife, wanted to help God guide his “buggy”. It was not until he let go of the reins, that God was able to bring him through and bless him.
Transition: As we conclude this book, I want us to see how God responded when Job surrendered and humbled himself. Take note, because God will do the same for you and me.
Job Humbled Himself before God (v.1-6)
