Job 37 Summary
In Job 37:1-13, Elihu described God’s greatness. Elihu described that God used his majestic voice to sound the thunders, make the snow fall, make the rain shower on earth, make the strong violent wind blow, produce ice, loads clouds with moisture, and scatters the lightning. At this, the animals will take shelter in their dens.
In Job 37:14-18, Elihu appealed to Job about the wondrous works of God, that God is beyond understanding. Although Elihu is right in making his points, he applied it wrongly on Job and accused that his problems came from his sins.
In Job 37:19-24, Elihu confronted Job for complaining to God that he did not deserve all these disasters. Elihu pointed out that God is the head and no one can speak against him, that he always give fair judgment.
Job 37 Bible Study
1. Don’t complain
Whatever problem you face, you must not grumble or complain but just surrender it to God and let him guide you. In John 16:33, these things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. In Philippians 2:14, do all things without murmurings and disputings. In Ephesians 4:29, let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. In James 5:9, grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. In 1 Corinthians 10:10, neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
