One thing that's important as we read daily: being eager to hear Him speak to you. Go into your reading expectant that God desires to share something with you.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 23 - What mountain do I need to see God toss aside for me?
- Verses 12-21 - Jesus doesn't curse the fig tree because He's in a bad mood. The fig tree is symbolic of the Temple - without fruit. He curses it as a sign that He is cursing the Temple system.

Your Thoughts On Previous Chapters:
"There is alot of commentary and literature out there in mainstream Christian writing on the Book of Job and specifically debating whether it is fiction or non-fiction. After reading a great deal of it, I have confirmed my own initial opinion for whatever that is worth. I guess it is worth something to me. Regardless of anyone's personal belief on this issue, the book's importance in scripture remains intact. God created and rules the world. But there is evil in the world. Humankind has seen to that. We are free to choose good or evil and those choices have far reaching consequences beyond our own lives. Bad things happen to good people. Good things happen to bad people. Difficulties in life make us stronger. Ease of life makes us weaker. Say what you want about about the life of Job........It requires one to think, and pray."
