Job 3,4:

3 – Job’s honest and open cry is from his heart. He is not cursing God. Just crying our for relief, the Bible teaches us that we must honestly express our doubts, fears and concerns with God. He already knows our hearts, there is nothing that is hidden from God.

3:26 – Jobs greatest fear was separation from God. I can relate very much to that fear. But Job truly lived it by showing how he handled these tremendous challenges.

4 – Although this chapter has some truth to it, the thoughts of Eliphaz were not inspired by the Holy Spirit, but rather his emotions and the way he has been mislead about the sovereignty of God. In verses 7-8 Eliphaz’s words illustrate heavenly truths not reality.

Acts 8:

1-4 – I was just listening to a sermon yesterday about how persecution will not only scatter the church, but persecution will lead to the gospel spreading. Here is one of the examples of that.

13 – God’s love and power can touch anyone.

21 – Our hearts must be pure, Simon’s heart and intentions still needed some refining. In order to fully tap into God’s glorious blessings we must be pure in heart.

26-28 – I saw this part of the story in a whole new light. Phillip was sent on this mission with no real direction or plan. According to the text we can only assume that the plan was very unclear, but Phillip obeyed. Our obedience to God and the Holy Spirit can have enormous benefits not just for us, but for the people God is trying to use us to reach out to.

32-33 – I love this passage of Jesus, the selfless, humility of our Lord!

39-40 – I love the humility of Phillip here. He just was a part of something that we still talk about today. He just was transported by the spirit. He just led a man to Jesus and baptized him. But as soon as Phillip is moved on, he gets right back to work. Amazing!

Acts 9:

17-18 – This was an amazing miracle. But it took some amazing courage on the part of Ananias to face Saul, then to speak to him in the name of Jesus. He risked imprisonment, beatings and even death for the name of Jesus! Wow!

22 – It seems to me that because of Saul’s bold conviction and passion power came quickly to Saul. He was hungry for the Lord and the truth.

31 – The church must enjoy the good times with the bad times.
