Job’s Response to God (Job 40:3 – 5)

Job 40:3–5 (NKJV)
Job’s Response to God

3 Then Job answered the LORD and said:

4 “Behold, I am vile;
What shall I answer You?
I lay my hand over my mouth.
5 Once I have spoken, but I will not answer;
Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further.”

Job’s brief response is replete with confession and repentance.  The entirety of his is shown above.  When confronted with God face to face, there can be little response but worship.  Here, Job recognizes his own inadequacy and pledges his silence of questioning in the midst of his trouble.  After you have asked why, after you have cried tears and screamed at the sky, simply be still and see what God will do.  He is the only one Who can restore was sin or the enemy has taken from you.
