Blind to Myself


Job 30:1-7thank you for noticing

God called Job His blameless and upright servant. Even know Job loved Papa so much, he misunderstood his affliction. That had caused him to become unbalanced in his focus. Instead of keeping his focus and mind on Papa and justifying Him, he gave his whole thought to justifying himself. Instead of humility, there is self-righteousness. Job referred to himself over 40 times in this one chapter. But… when he saw himself as Papa saw him, he repented.

Papa,

I see this same justification and self-righteousness in myself. Instead of keeping my mind stayed on You, I’ve been focusing on myself.

What are my misunderstandings?

Show me…

I need to see that which I am blinding myself to. “Me” is a big problem. I have a hard time getting out of the way and letting You be God and in charge.

Even though I don’t like to see these behaviors in myself, I’m grateful You shared this with me. Help me to be humble before You.
