THE IMPATIENCE OF JOB
Job 4:5; 5:6
We're in the process of studying t[Te baak o-f U'ob. We've looked at Chapter 1 and
Chapter 2. And this morning we continue our study and look at Chapter 3 and
the first part of Chapter 4. If you'll open your Bibles to Job, Chapter 4. I'll

with you, wiZZ you become impatient? But who can refrain from
speaking? 3 "BehoZd you (Job) have admonished many. And you
have strengthened weak hands. 4 "Your words have hezped the
tottering to stand. And you have strengthened feeble knees.
5"But now it has come to you, and you (Job) are impatient;
It touches you, and you are dismayed.
Let's pray together. "Father, we come from a diversification of our backgrounds
and our needs, but yet there is a central unifying factor. And that is, Oh, Lord,
we all need that fresh clear word from Thyself. We have come here, not out of
habit, not out of ritual, not because it makes us feel good, but, Lord, we're
thankful that we are here because there is a need, a basic fundamental need in
our lives to know You, to have You working in our lives, to understand Your ways,
to perceive Your will for us moment by moment, day by day. Lord, You speak right
now and let me get out of the way so that Thy word and Thy holy and divine message
might not only be heard, but may it be received and understood and incorporated
into our daily living. Lo-rd, we It'hark You i,n a-dxjance for wbat You are about in
our lives, yea in this service. And we make this prayer in the strong, holy name
of Jesus Christ our Savior and our Lord. Amen."
