If I were to tell you that Bruce Scringstein insured hismicrophone or six million no Yousay. What that's insane I mean to o whatinsurance company would covera two thousand dollar microphone for sixmillion dollars, you're right, none! Would it wasn't the microphone T at Brucesbringsteen ensured for six million...

...dollars? No, it was his voice. He Didn'Nsure his voice for sit milliontough, but not the microe. That makes much more sense and obviously isbelievable without a microphone though Ri springsteam would not have gainedthe thing he did, but the instrument you should never be mistaken. The one uing such is the case within his anyinstrument or tool. A Beautiful Home should not elicit admiration for theblue prints or the mail gun that was used to buildit. Rather, admiration should be directed at the architect of the or the contractor. Who did the work so ater, that's obvious. Such statements don't even need to bemade.

Oh really have you thought through the logconclusion that the instrument you should never be mistaken for the oneusing jove made such a mistake and hereceived a lecter for fearing storms rather than the one who allows is to Nogat, ofe wisdom, t t we would all dowell to learn we're in Joe Chapter thirty fivethrough thirty seven. In Our last study we were introduced to Ellau, so youhave Joe Elephaz his other friends build ads so far, and then Awho showsup a man of God who can prunt, Jo the mal go or even the most righteous on the faceof the earth, still acenter and sometimes needed, confontation Elavuprovided,...

...and he confronts Jo's friends as well. Now, l Ho is back talking to you notice. First, thirty, five versus sixthid fourteen I'll read them. If you see it, how was that AF that guy? Even if you see him again and again, what e fact does that have ongot? If you are good that some great gift to God, what could you possibly give to? No your scens affect only people likeyourself and your good deeds also affect only out people cry out when they are oppressed.They groan beneath the power of the might. Yet they don't ask. Where is Godmy creator, the one who gives songs in the night? Where is the one who makes us smarterthan the animals and wiser than the...

...birds of the sky and when they cry out? God doesn'tanswer because of their pride. But it is wrong to say, God doesn'tlisten to say the Almighty isn't concerned ordoesn't care. You say you can't see hi ut, he will bring justice just wait again in chapter thirty, seven versustwo three: Four, listen closely to the thunder of hisvoice and the rumbling that goes out from hismouth under the whole. Heaven he lets itloose and is lightening to the ends of the Earth. After it a voiceroars, he thunders withmajestic voice. He does not restrain the lightnings when his voice is hear. Elahu comes to jove and he says still no amount of good work, Bei,...

...so you're good. You give your money to feed the poor. You take care of others, you give ofyourself you're constantly giving that dnthe needs. None of that. Hegains nothing. My heart I'll say that again, God gains nothing Byrall, those good deeds. You do allthose nice things how neighborly you are how good you are. What a greatperson you are: You've not benefited, God one. I, though I give all my possessions to thepoor. I have added nothing to God, you and I have no leverage with God and, although our sins do affectsociety, in fact, thirty five eight Jo...

...said that your San's, a fat otherhumans ar n nefexsociety. We do something wrong. It affects ors. Nevertheless, her sin does not causeany worry with. He is above our righteousness and he'sabove. Our singod is in need of nothing. We do not add to God Bo being righteous.We do not subtract from God o Being Sid. That owes us nothing for our goodness,and yet our seeand demands is righteous judgment. Elahoo continues on hearing everythingthat Jo had said, and he continues on sang pitching a fit to get God'sattention doesn't do anything either ever done. That Joe was doing that shaking his Fistin God crying out toGod. God would you just listen to Hi God? Can I get your attention? Godyou're, like this thing, things that...

...were accused o to get conds attention having a pety party fitching of it? No,who says its it's not as if God doesn't see the pity party does not make God moreaware of our situation. Hehe knows he shiys what's happening in our life. Daring, a puty party doesn't make youmore aware of elahus advice. God knows, God sees, God owes you nothing b. God does Caref wharated. I God knows, God sees he owls,you nothing, but he does care. And yet his acting on your behalf isnot hurried by your manipulation...

...job. You think. By getting God'sattention and manipulating God, then all of a sudden I says, Ohkay well, letme hurry up. No O God's, not hurry. My manageNimulationin fact. He says the Coret Responds Joe Wait, O thirty five Ermoto wait on Minovis, aforty thirty one. They that wait upon the war shaling in their street. Theyshow mal oup with wings like eagles. They Sha'll run and Ogbe wer. They shall walk and everything wait onthe loor you're. In the midst of the trial, bitching a fet getting hisattention that doesn't help. What what's the solution have faith in Weigt you'll Shal you'll? Be There ritled the wayalwayshowever? What is most pressing about Alazu's inquiry? Isthat Jo, gavemore concern to his trial. Then he gave...

...to die. He was more in all of his personalstore chapter, thirty, seven versus one through fourteen then chapters month,orfor chapter thirty, seven versus one thr four. He was more an all of hispersonal store and he was o God how sad and yet so true in our lives aswell. The thunders and lightnings of ourstorm often receive more reverence and the one who is in control of thoseSuterin oweae attempted to speak more about the power of the storm in ourlives than the power of God. When we have trials, the temptation isto be consumed by the trial. To speak of the tornado, that'swrecking our lives. We share those Tornados, so storms,those trials with everyone. We speak about how terrible and fierce the stormis. We gain attention from men as we...

...trod on about the intensity of thestore, all ewhile, the creator of Oll, the onewho rings or allows the thundering and light receives only a passing in Gog. He Still Goe the one who has the power to stop peetystorm with hone work is overshadowed by the store. No wonder Jesus told the discifles onthe boat O ye a little. They were more impressed with the store n theywere with Jesus. They were more focused on the store and they were onjesus. The storm received more attention thanJesus, and that was SOE whowas telling Ji.

You are giving more attention to yourtrials than you're getting Togo and that's wrong. May God forgive us for giving moreattention to creation, then agree. May God give us forgive us for notremaining remaining in all of him. May Our storms be simple reminders ofthe one above the so may. We speak of the power and mine ofGod, rather than the destructive force ofthe storm. May We be more unsent by the presence of God and by the presence of storm T, ry and Sildo. We will never make the hairof saying God. What can you do for me? Rather, we will say, as ELEU was tryingto get joe to understand...
