The sixteenth century Polish astronomer, Copernicus, demonstrated that the sun is the center, with the earth and planets circling about it. It was a revolution in his day. Elihu’s intervention does the same for Job’s world. Job is not the center: God is. Read today’s passage very slowly, so that your spirit will sense the shift, flowing easily along with his speech. Pause after his questions, so that any egocentric ways of thinking that you have will shift to a prayerful contemplation of God as the center of your world.
Yield to Elihu’s expression of faith and conviction. The images and poetry here will touch your spirit. Be open to the Lord who daily prepares you to receive God’s Word more and more. The concluding passage in Job comes next week, when God finally intervenes and does the talking.
