Job Chapters 38-42

CHAPTER 39

Text: Would the wild ox be willing to serve you? Would it spend the night by your feeding trough? Can you hold the wild ox to a furrow by its harness? Will it plow the valleys behind you? Can you depend on it because its strength is great? Would you leave it to do your hard work? Can you trust the wild ox to harvest your grain and bring it to your threshing floor? (Verses 9-12)

Tweet: It It is God alone who can harness the strength of the wild ox* for use in His service.
