COME WHAT MAYFebruary 12, 2018
Daily Prayer for February 12th, 2018
Good morning, God Almighty‚ÄĒthank You!! ūüôā
When feeling left abandoned, I cry out to You. I desire to speak to You to argue my case, and then I will know that I am vindicated. You are my mediator. I will trust You in the midst of my deepest despair. Justice will be revealed in the life to come! In Jesus name. Amen.
Job 13:1-19¬†New International Version (NIV)
13¬†‚ÄúMy eyes have seen all this,
my ears have heard and understood it.
2¬†What you know, I also know;
I am not inferior to you.
3¬†But I desire to speak to the Almighty
and to argue my case with God.
4¬†You, however, smear me with lies;
you are worthless physicians,¬†all of you!
5¬†If only you would be altogether silent!
For you, that would be wisdom.
6¬†Hear now my argument;
listen to the pleas of my lips.
7¬†Will you speak wickedly on God‚Äôs behalf?
Will you speak deceitfully for him?
8¬†Will you show him partiality?
Will you argue the case for God?
9¬†Would it turn out well if he examined you?
Could you deceive him as you might deceive a mortal?
10¬†He would surely call you to account
if you secretly showed partiality.
11¬†Would not his splendor¬†terrify you?
Would not the dread of him fall on you?
12¬†Your maxims are proverbs of ashes;
your defenses are defenses of clay.
13¬†‚ÄúKeep silent¬†and let me speak;
then let come to me what may.
14¬†Why do I put myself in jeopardy
and take my life in my hands?
15¬†Though he slay me, yet will I hope¬†in him;
I will surely¬†defend my ways to his face.
16¬†Indeed, this will turn out for my deliverance,
for no godless¬†person would dare come before him!
17¬†Listen carefully to what I say;
let my words ring in your ears.
18¬†Now that I have prepared my case,
I know I will be vindicated.
19¬†Can anyone bring charges against me?
If so, I will be silent¬†and die.
