4 Hear [shama`], I beseech thee,
and I will speak [dabar]: I will demand [sha'al] of thee, and declare [yada`]
thou unto me. KJV-Interlinear
4 'Hear, now, and I will speak; I
will ask Thee, and do Thou instruct me.'NASB
We do not approach God as an equal.We do not approach God argumentatively.We do not approach God with a manner of
presumed wisdom.We certainly do not
approach God with disrespect, discourtesy, insolence, contempt, impertinence, controversy
and such other similar attitudes.
There is only one way to approach God.And that is to approach Him as a student
without portfolio, in humility, and silence of opinion.
There is nothing that we as humanity can offer
God.All that we are, all that we
possess, came from God and from no other source.
God does not sit back waiting to be impressed by our
talent, ability, intellect, or anything we might have. He only expects us to submit to His will,
which is truth.And in order to do that,
we have to listen and learn, and then to believe what we have learned, by
making it a part of our daily life.
Remember that man is but a speck of dust and nothing
more.What can dust teach God?What can the pot teach the potter?
In order to communicate with God, we must be in His
presence.In order to be in Gods
presence, we must be in fellowship.
Fellowship is a privilege of believers only.So, one must first be saved, before any
relationship with God is possible.All
unbelievers lack this access.
Then once saved, the issue is forgiveness of sin in
ones life.Confession obtains
forgiveness and places you in fellowship, where all spiritual phenomena takes
All spiritual growth, all spiritual learning, all
prayer, all of ones relationship with God, occurs while in fellowship.When you are out of fellowship, your
spiritual life is off line so to speak, disabled, non-functional.
In order to have a productive relationship with God,
then you must grow up spiritually.That
means that you have to learn, and in order to learn you have to be willing to
put away all of your attitudes, pre-conceived ideas, and opinions, and listen.
And, as we see here with Job, you really need the
attitude that you, want, to learn.
Actions speak louder than words, so your actual
actions of pursuing your spiritual life, really determine your real desire.
Saying all of the right things, even doing all of the
right things, are not enough. Even Satan can do that.You have to function within the fellowship
sphere before your spiritual life becomes real and productive.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
