Begin the new year with fresh humility

I’ve just finished reading the book JOB in a day (as I work to finish reading the whole Bible in 2010). It is a powerful thing to arrive at chapter 38 and hear the voice of God break through the discourses with His powerful questions. It is very humbling.

I urge you to carve out time to read the closing chapters of JOB as you end one year and begin the next…

Remember the LORD is God Almighty. Fear and serve Him in 2011.

JOB 38 — 
38:1-7 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said:

“Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me.

Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
(esv)
