JOB 33 - Now My Eye Sees You

Job 42
1 Then Job answered the LORD and said: ....
5 "I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear,
But now my eye sees You.
6 Therefore I abhor myself,
And repent in dust and ashes."
NKJV

We all need to reach this this place of humility before God can begin to bring His purpose to pass in our lives.

We all begin our relationship with God not realising WHO He really is: particularly His OmniPotence: His overwhelming and total power.

At this point the first phrase of verse 5 describes us accurately:
I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear ...

When we pass though a season of reversals like Job did, it causes us to come to terms very quickly with our powerLESSness, and we begin to appreciate how big and great our God really is, and how limited we humans really are without His loving and protective input in our lives.

This is when the second phrase of verse 5 begins to happen to us:
But now my eye sees You.

Then we can pray the prayer of humility in verse 6:
Therefore I abhor myself,
And repent in dust and ashes.

To abhor means to find repugnant and to move away from.
I move away from my previous view, where I knew I was self-sufficient, and the reality begins to sink in that without God, I cannot.
In things that really matter in life, I am helpless and powerless without Him.

When I get there, God can now begin to use me!

Prayer:
Father, I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear,
But now my eye sees You.
Therefore I abhor myself,
And repent in dust and ashes.
My life is at Your disposal. Use me as You see fit, for whatever purpose You called me into the world,
in Jesus' name,
Amen.



See you tomorrow, God willing!
