Scripture Reading: Job 23:9-19
On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold
Reflections: Job’s friend accused him falsely. As they lambasted him, Job wished he could access God through prayer for his innocence to be proven, but he noted that no matter how hard he tried, God remained silent. There was simply no answer to his prayers. He notes however that his inability to find God in this sense did not imply that he was also hidden from God’s sight. Thus God was watching him and knew too well every step he took. Like Job it is important to retain such a knowledge in life. Consciously acknowledging that you are never hidden from God’s sight enables you to connect to a divinely approved lifestyle all the time. The omnipresence and omniscient nature of God can never be limited by man’s inability to either see God or hear from Him. Truly God sees you all the time, no matter what!
Prayer: Dear Lord, may I never forget that you always see me.
Confession: I may not see God, but He always sees me.
