I'm on a journey to read through the Bible in chronological order. Taking it one day at a time, I will read based on a list I found on the internet and blog about what happened, thoughts provoked, emotions conjured, etc. Enjoy!

Day thirteen: Job 35-37

Elihu continues and makes a great point--we don't cry out and ask for God to respond when things are going great, so why should He respond to our arrogance when things go to pot? He reminds Job to not worry about others receiving their judgment, let God worry about such things. I'm really liking this guy...

A really cool part of this reading is in chapter 37 where Elihu describes all the ways God provides for and governs the earth. If He can handle all of that, who are we to question Him? He makes rain fall, ice freeze, lightening strike...I am rejuvenated by these words!!!!

5 God's voice thunders in marvelous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.

6 He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,'
and to the rain shower, 'Be a mighty downpour.'

14 "Listen to this, Job;
stop and consider God's wonders.

15 Do you know how God controls the clouds
and makes his lightning flash?

16 Do you know how the clouds hang poised,
those wonders of him who is perfect in knowledge?
