Thoughts for the Day

Job 37-40, John 5:18-32

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said: “Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me." Job 38:1-3 Finally! I was getting bored reading the last 30+ chapters of Job and his friends...

Job 33-36, John 5:1-17

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Those who suffer he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them in their affliction. Job 36:15 Elihu, a friend of Job, is the first person speaking to him who makes any sense. Others said God was unfair or that Job was being punished for some sin in his past. Elihu said that God delivers...

Job 30-32, John 4:46e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I cry out to you, God, but you do not answer; I stand up, but you merely look at me. Job 30:20 What makes us feel as if God is not listening? Isn’t it that we ask God to do something, but He does not respond as we want? Isn’t God the one in charge—to do as He pleases?...

Job 25-29, JOhn 4:27-45

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I will maintain my innocence and never let go of it; my conscience will not reproach me as long as I live. Job 27:6 Job honored God and His wisdom throughout all the talk of why he was made to suffer so. Yet, it is in this verse that he is flawed. He maintained his own innocence. The bottom...

Job 20-24, JOhn 4:1-26

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you. Job 22:21 Job and his “friends” struggled to understand why a man of God would suffer so. So they simplified things and Job’s buddy comes to the conclusion there must be some secret sin that Job...

Job 15-19, John 3:22e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them. John 3:36 I read in Job where he and his “friends” speak endlessly trying to figure out why God allowed Job to suffer so much. They did not understand...

Job 11-14, John 3:1-21

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; I will surely defend my ways to his face. Job 13:15 I can sympathize with Job. His life had been torn apart and he had no idea why. Yet, he trusted God. Yet, he was conflicted. He said he would place his hope in God even if God killed him, but he felt...

Job 6-10, John 2:13-25

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

If I have sinned, what have I done to you, you who see everything we do? Why have you made me your target? Have I become a burden to you? Job 7:20 Job was wrong on two counts, and Jesus verifies that. 1) He spoke as if he might be innocent; Jesus has made it clear that no one is innocent. 2) He...

Job 1-5, John 2:1-12

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

"Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” Job 2:10 We all know that Job suffered terribly and God allowed it. In the middle of his struggle to understand why Job recognized that we should not joyfully take the good things in life from God but not accept the troubles. If we rejoice...

Genesis 8:1-11:9, John 1:35e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. . . . Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Genesis 9:13,15 After the flood, God gave the rainbow as a sign He would never send another flood like that. The rainbow...
