Discussion for Job 29

  • Mark
    Job outlines how we learn to have Christ walk us through our "every days" with Grace. Wisdom and comfort to others always outweighs possessions and riches. Once we make that a staple in lives, we will truly be able to be "pillars" and have Christ's love that we can transcend to others.

    Be the true messenger. In essence: " Remember that you do your good deeds, when no one is watching."

    God helps you when you are in need. To help you over come the problems. Because he is there for you always no matter what happened at the time. I am 11 years-old.

    Hmm Job.simply recounted and gave us a divine secret that encapsulated all his fortune, honour, anointing and peace. Job was a giver. Read all that he did and see how God blessed him. He called those acts the secrets of God. How many of us have such secret and uphold them? He had honour, Gid shielded him and his days were multiplied. What secrets! Let us all plug in and watch God decorate us too.

    God always give the grace to overcome our problems in life
  • Phemelo
    Our self-righteousness is likened to filthy rags Isaiah 64:6 . We can 't do anything of our own, on our own, which is good. All good things comes from Jehovah. Here, Job gives himself the credit for doing all he has done, bragging and boasting . The left hand must not know what the right hand has done, given, helped, etc. All glory must be given to God, because when we start boasting of our deeds, that 's when we develop a vain-glory personality and sooner or later, we will want all the glory. ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God, so say Scripture.
  • Rogers
    If Job chapter 29 is to be read alone, it shows how a righteous man is trully blessed in the hand of the Lord. Job was reounting the past good days which apparently were later restored to him. His current position teaches us that it is NOT by deed but by faith that we obtain the GRACE of righeousness. So what is most important is FAITH
