I Repent

“Then Job replied to the Lord:
“I know that you can do all things;
no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’
Surely I spoke of things I did not understand,
things too wonderful for me to know.
“You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me.’
My ears had heard of you
but now my eyes have seen you.
Therefore I despise myself
and repent in dust and ashes.” Job 42:1-6 NIV

We are sinful people who dwell in a land of sinful people. Let us each have the humility of Job. Let’s understand that God is holy and in control. Let us trust in Him and in humility seek His grace and favor to heal our souls and heal our land.
