AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR FEBRUARY 6

Read Exodus 10-13 Moses rejects compromise, ‘just the men can go’. God will not relent until all the Israelites are free and their cattle and belongings. Egypt and God are not equal opponents. There will be no negotiations, there will be no concessions. GOD has spoken, “LET MY PEOPLE GO”! From PATTI on the YOUVERSION APP: ‘Joseph knew and was confident that God would make good on His promises to lead the people out of Egypt to the promised land, though it wasn’t in his lifetime. That is why he instructed them to take his bones with them when it happens.…

AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR FEBRUARY 5

Read Exodus 5-9 In Exodus 5 we see the war over the oppressed children of Israel finding deliverance. The one oppressing them, increases their work, so they have NO TIME for attention to God.“Make the work harder for the people so that they keep working and pay no attention to lies.” Ex 5‬:‭9‬The work load causes them to fall into discouragement. Moses also doesn’t see God at work. He sees things going from bad to worse.And now the Israelites won’t listen to Moses and his own limitations of speech come to mind. He has shown them signs, he has spoke…

AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR FEBRUARY 4

Rest Day “Only those who sit can stand. Our power for standing, as for walking, lies in our having first been made to sit together with Christ. The Christian’s walk and warfare alike derive their strength from his position there. If he is not sitting before God he cannot hope to stand before the enemy.”Watchman Nee, Sit, Walk, Stand

AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR FEBRUARY 3

Read Exodus 1-4 Israel in Egypt is exceedingly fruitful. They begin to fill the land. It’s here a family becomes more of a nation in appearance and number. Oppression can’t stop them from multiplying. Moses is born and the future leader of the Exodus is placed in a basket in the Nile. God is up to something. So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them. Exodus 2:25

AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR FEBRUARY 2

Read Job 40:6-24, 41-42, Psalm 29 In Job 42 Job speaks with God, after a heavy questioning from the LORD. Have you ever been in the ocean and felt the dread of vulnerability? I was in the Indian ocean miles and miles from home, and a fear came over me of the purest kind. I was on a smaller inflated gear boat, and the main boat was our hub. I was looking at a super large blue starfish when the thought of a bull or tiger shark lurking in the water hit me. IT WAS JUST A THOUGHT, BUT it…

AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR FEBRUARY 1

Read Job 37-39, 40:1-5, Psalm 19 God communicates the complex intelligence required to sustain and care for the world. God asks Job some hard questions. “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?    Tell me, if you understand.Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!    Who stretched a measuring line across it? Job 38:4-5 Jesus was more than there when God laid the foundations. Hebrews 1:2 says it is through Jesus he made the universe. Jesus Christ is the both the power and the wisdom of God. (1 Cor 1:24) Jesus is both the justice and the mercy of God.  But about the…

AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR JANUARY 31

Read Job 33-36 What we know of God is too little. ELIHU digs at a source of questioning humans have been entertaining from the garden of Eden. It’s a questioning of the directions and leadership of God. God speaks in a dream, a vision of the night, and Elihu suggests it is for man to turn aside from his conduct and to keep man from pride. These are possible hints to why suffering is allowed. God is gracious and forgiving. God is a redeemer. We hardly have a grip on the magnitude of God’s nature and majesty. Our minds are…

AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR JANUARY 30

Read Job 29-32 MEET 🙂 ELIHU, his name means ‘HE IS GOD HIMSELF’. He is the son of Barachel which means ‘ THE SON OF THE BLESSED GOD’. He is full of anger because Job justifies himself before God. Job 32:2 ELIHU is the only comforter of Job who God does not rebuke later in the conclusion of the book. ELIHU speaks full of the Spirit (Job 32:18, 36:1-2, 36:3-4). We know this is true by comparing the words of ELIHU and GOD. Check it out in Job 34:17 and Job 40:8. AND then again in Job 34:35 and Job…

AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR JANUARY 29

Read Job 25-28 Who is Bildad the Shuhite? He had sat in silence for with Job for 7 days because Job’s suffering was so flabbergasting. In Genesis 25:1-2 we read he is a descendant of Abraham’s son Shuah whose mother Keturah became Abraham’s wife after Sarah died. Bildad’s last bit of counsel is highlighting man as grossly inferior to God. Job calls Bildad’s help NO HELP AT ALL. Isn’t that how the bereaved feel when when people offer words in the face of tremendous loss. And it’s like Job says, ‘ok Bildad you want to talk about the greatness of…
