Resurrender 2022: January 24
January 24 | God Gives Life
“Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind?” Job 12.9-10
Reading: Job 12
Everything, including the very breath of mankind, are in God’s hands. We see this in the beginning when God made Adam “of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and he became a living being” (Genesis 2.7). Job shares this truth with those trying to counsel him during a time of great lost. Job believes God is the Creator and the giver of life. He is the only truly sovereign being. God is wise and powerful.
Prayer: Lord, You are the Creator of all things. You are the giver of life. You gave me the breath in my lungs and sustain that very breath today. You made my heart, made it begin to beat and keep it beating today. With every breath of my lungs and beat of my heart may I praise You.
