“Bear with me a little, and I will show you, for I have yet something to say on God’s behalf.” Job 36v2
When Elihu arrives on the scene at the end of Job it feels to me like such a mixed up thing. He says some things that are right and good and true and yet his tone and his conclusions seem to be arrogant and somewhat off the mark. It got me thinking about the many people I have met over the years who are full of passion and full of “vision” and who want to sort the church out and set everything right. The trouble is that some of what is said is absolutely right and really challenging, but with it come some conclusions that are just weird. “God give me wisdom to work out what is right, to follow what you say and be strong enough to say no to things that are a distraction.” I need to keep reminding myself that the Word brings the increase.
