All too often Satan can attack us through pride. Pride in how smart we may be; pride in how much money we have; pride in our accomplishments. Like Job I need to remember not to utter what I do not understand. I need to remember that no purpose of God’s can be thwarted. –Larry


“Then Job replied to the Lord:

‘I know that you can do all things;

no plan of yours can be thwarted.

You asked, “Who is this that obscures my counsel without knowledge?”

Surely I spoke of things I did not understand,

things too wonderful for me to know.

‘You said, “Listen now, and I will speak;

I will question you,

and you shall answer Me.”

My ears had heard of you

but now my eyes have seen you.

Therefore I despise myself

and repent in dust and ashes.”

Job 42:1-6
