  • Scott Dooley: This is ScottDooley, your host for
  • 00:00:02.460 --> 00:00:03.728
  • "Connect with Skip Heitzig."
  • 00:00:03.761 --> 00:00:05.063
  • Just ahead, our message today,"Discovering God,
  • 00:00:05.096 --> 00:00:07.899
  • Discovering Myself."
  • 00:00:07.932 --> 00:00:09.367
  • But first, someone once said,"If you wanna know about
  • 00:00:09.400 --> 00:00:12.403
  • Michelangelo, you need to studywhat he said, what he did,
  • 00:00:12.437 --> 00:00:16.174
  • and what he created."
  • 00:00:16.207 --> 00:00:17.508
  • Let me add that the same is trueif you want to know God.
  • 00:00:17.542 --> 00:00:20.445
  • You will need to devote yourselfto his words, actions, and
  • 00:00:20.478 --> 00:00:24.015
  • what he created.
  • 00:00:24.048 --> 00:00:25.349
  • That is one of the reasons I'mglad to announce Skip's newest
  • 00:00:25.383 --> 00:00:28.019

  • 00:00:47.271 --> 00:00:49.774
  • Now, let's continue our series,"Shelter in Grace," with part
  • 00:00:49.807 --> 00:00:53.344
  • two of the message, "DiscoveringGod, Discovering Myself."
  • 00:00:53.377 --> 00:01:03.387
  • Skip Heitzig: "Listen, please,and let me speak.
  • 00:01:04.755 --> 00:01:07.358
  • You said, 'I will question youand you shall answer me.'
  • 00:01:07.391 --> 00:01:10.528
  • I have heard of you by thehearing of the ear, but now
  • 00:01:10.561 --> 00:01:13.331
  • my eye sees you.
  • 00:01:13.364 --> 00:01:14.665
  • Therefore, I abhor myself andrepent in dust and ashes."
  • 00:01:14.699 --> 00:01:21.639
  • So God has just schooled Jobfor four chapters
  • 00:01:21.672 --> 00:01:26.844
  • with these questions.
  • 00:01:26.878 --> 00:01:29.046
  • And so Job puts his findingsin these sentences.
  • 00:01:29.080 --> 00:01:33.184
  • He has learned two basic thingshere about the majesty of God:
  • 00:01:33.217 --> 00:01:36.387
  • God is strong andGod is sovereign.
  • 00:01:36.420 --> 00:01:38.990
  • God is strong, he's powerful,and God is sovereign; that is,
  • 00:01:39.023 --> 00:01:43.928
  • it means he's in total,absolute control.
  • 00:01:43.961 --> 00:01:46.631
  • He never says, "Oops."
  • 00:01:46.664 --> 00:01:48.766
  • God is strong.
  • 00:01:48.799 --> 00:01:50.101
  • God is sovereign.
  • 00:01:50.134 --> 00:01:51.469
  • God is strong.
  • 00:01:51.502 --> 00:01:52.803
  • Verse 2: "I know that you cando everything."
  • 00:01:52.837 --> 00:01:56.541
  • Hey, do you know that?
  • 00:01:56.574 --> 00:01:57.909
  • Do you know that God cando everything?
  • 00:01:57.942 --> 00:01:59.744
  • Next time you sweat it out, doyou know that you are dealing
  • 00:01:59.777 --> 00:02:02.513
  • with the God who can doeverything?
  • 00:02:02.547 --> 00:02:05.483
  • I love Jeremiah, what he said toGod in chapter 32 of his book.
  • 00:02:05.516 --> 00:02:08.719
  • The prophet said, "Oh Lord God,you created the heavens and the
  • 00:02:08.753 --> 00:02:13.157
  • earth, and there is nothingtoo hard for you."
  • 00:02:13.191 --> 00:02:18.196
  • That's the God that youand I are dealing with.
  • 00:02:18.229 --> 00:02:21.132
  • Too often we carry ourlimitations over onto God.
  • 00:02:21.165 --> 00:02:27.338
  • We carry our weaknesses overonto the God who has
  • 00:02:27.371 --> 00:02:32.176
  • no limitation whatsoeverin his strength.
  • 00:02:32.210 --> 00:02:35.580
  • We think, because I'm weak,therefore God must be weak.
  • 00:02:35.613 --> 00:02:39.183
  • Because I'm limited,therefore God must be limited.
  • 00:02:39.217 --> 00:02:41.986
  • And so we sort of seeGod like we see ourselves,
  • 00:02:42.019 --> 00:02:45.823
  • and it's wrong.
  • 00:02:45.856 --> 00:02:47.358
  • It's a wrong view of God.
  • 00:02:47.391 --> 00:02:49.293
  • It's a warped view of God.
  • 00:02:49.327 --> 00:02:51.395
  • I love what one boy said intrying to describe God to his
  • 00:02:51.429 --> 00:02:54.699
  • fellow kids inSunday School class.
  • 00:02:54.732 --> 00:02:56.567
  • He said, "God is greater thanSuperman, Batman, and the
  • 00:02:56.601 --> 00:03:00.771
  • Power Rangers put together."
  • 00:03:00.805 --> 00:03:03.441
  • That's his way of saying whatJob said, "There's nothing too
  • 00:03:03.474 --> 00:03:06.310
  • hard for you.
  • 00:03:06.344 --> 00:03:07.645
  • I know that you can doeverything."
  • 00:03:07.678 --> 00:03:09.046
  • So he learned God is strong.
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:10.648
  • He learned God is sovereign.
  • 00:03:10.681 --> 00:03:13.351
  • Because he says in verse 2, "Notonly can you do everything, but
  • 00:03:13.384 --> 00:03:17.321
  • that no purpose of yourscan be withheld."
  • 00:03:17.355 --> 00:03:23.027
  • No purpose of God can bewithheld or held back.
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:28.733
  • God is absolutely sovereign.
  • 00:03:28.766 --> 00:03:30.668
  • Now, some people strugglewith God's sovereignty.
  • 00:03:30.701 --> 00:03:32.870
  • I'll just say your days will behappier, your life will be
  • 00:03:32.903 --> 00:03:37.141
  • better when you rest inthe sovereignty of God.
  • 00:03:37.174 --> 00:03:42.013
  • Job finally realized that Godhad some purpose in
  • 00:03:42.046 --> 00:03:45.149
  • his suffering.
  • 00:03:45.182 --> 00:03:47.151
  • He didn't know what a was yet.
  • 00:03:47.184 --> 00:03:49.654
  • He hadn't discoveredwhat it was.
  • 00:03:49.687 --> 00:03:51.022
  • God didn't tell him what it was.
  • 00:03:51.055 --> 00:03:53.157
  • In fact, there's no indicationthat God ever told him why,
  • 00:03:53.190 --> 00:03:56.694
  • but Job comes to the realizationthere must be some reason
  • 00:03:56.727 --> 00:04:01.232
  • for it.
  • 00:04:01.265 --> 00:04:02.566
  • No purpose of Godcan be withheld.
  • 00:04:02.600 --> 00:04:04.969
  • Romans 8:28: "We know that allthings work together for good
  • 00:04:05.002 --> 00:04:09.573
  • to those who love God andare the called according
  • 00:04:09.607 --> 00:04:12.109
  • to his purpose."
  • 00:04:12.143 --> 00:04:13.444
  • You may never know exactly whatthat good is on this earth till
  • 00:04:13.477 --> 00:04:17.381
  • you get to heaven, but Godis working all things.
  • 00:04:17.415 --> 00:04:20.818
  • So God is ruling the universeand he is over ruling
  • 00:04:20.851 --> 00:04:25.489
  • the universe.
  • 00:04:25.523 --> 00:04:29.060
  • God rules the universewith his feet up.
  • 00:04:29.093 --> 00:04:34.398
  • He's not bent over, wringing hishands, going, "Oh no."
  • 00:04:34.432 --> 00:04:38.369
  • If you're gonna picture God,picture him kicked back with
  • 00:04:38.402 --> 00:04:42.206
  • his feet up.
  • 00:04:42.239 --> 00:04:43.541
  • It's like, "I got this.
  • 00:04:43.574 --> 00:04:44.909
  • This is not a problem."
  • 00:04:44.942 --> 00:04:47.311
  • Job confesses that.
  • 00:04:47.345 --> 00:04:48.846
  • God is strong.
  • 00:04:48.879 --> 00:04:50.214
  • God is sovereign.
  • 00:04:50.247 --> 00:04:51.549
  • So that's the majesty of God.
  • 00:04:51.582 --> 00:04:52.917
  • He learned the majesty of God.
  • 00:04:52.950 --> 00:04:54.885
  • That's his first discovery.
  • 00:04:54.919 --> 00:04:57.355
  • His second of his threemonumental discoveries is he
  • 00:04:57.388 --> 00:05:01.058
  • learned the inadequacy of man.
  • 00:05:01.092 --> 00:05:04.762
  • He says in verse 5 of chapter42, "I have heard of you by the
  • 00:05:04.795 --> 00:05:09.600
  • hearing of the ear, but nowmy eye sees you.
  • 00:05:09.633 --> 00:05:13.504
  • Therefore I abhor myself, andrepent in dust and ashes."
  • 00:05:13.537 --> 00:05:21.011
  • Boy, you might say Job hadpretty low self-esteem at
  • 00:05:21.045 --> 00:05:24.281
  • that moment.
  • 00:05:24.315 --> 00:05:25.649
  • Well, he had a reason to havelow self-esteem.
  • 00:05:25.683 --> 00:05:27.251
  • He had just encountered God, whoasked him 70 questions he
  • 00:05:27.284 --> 00:05:30.755
  • couldn't answer.
  • 00:05:30.788 --> 00:05:32.223
  • And so the only right responseis, "Okay, I'm really looking
  • 00:05:32.256 --> 00:05:35.860
  • bad right now.
  • 00:05:35.893 --> 00:05:37.595
  • I abhor myself and I repent indust and ashes."
  • 00:05:37.628 --> 00:05:40.431
  • Because God, essentially forfour chapters, has said to Job,
  • 00:05:40.464 --> 00:05:44.001
  • "Hey, I'm God and you're not.
  • 00:05:44.034 --> 00:05:46.370
  • Can you explain the mysteries ofthe universe?
  • 00:05:46.404 --> 00:05:48.372
  • I can."
  • 00:05:48.406 --> 00:05:49.707
  • So now Job says, "Okay, I'mnothing in comparison to you."
  • 00:05:49.740 --> 00:05:54.412
  • So get this.
  • 00:05:54.445 --> 00:05:55.780
  • In seeing God by the eyes offaith, Job saw himself.
  • 00:05:55.813 --> 00:06:04.388
  • You really only see yourselfwhen you get a glimpse of God.
  • 00:06:04.422 --> 00:06:09.093
  • And when you truly see God, youare able to truly see yourself.
  • 00:06:09.126 --> 00:06:13.531
  • It's amazing how different welook when we're next to God.
  • 00:06:13.564 --> 00:06:17.735
  • You know, you might look in themirror and go, "Okay, I'm ready,
  • 00:06:17.768 --> 00:06:20.004
  • ready to hit the day.
  • 00:06:20.037 --> 00:06:21.372
  • I look good."
  • 00:06:21.405 --> 00:06:22.740
  • But if you were to stand next toGod in the mirror, you're
  • 00:06:22.773 --> 00:06:27.077
  • looking really gnarly about now,'cause there's just
  • 00:06:27.111 --> 00:06:30.481
  • no comparison.
  • 00:06:30.514 --> 00:06:32.183
  • There's several great examplesof this in Scripture.
  • 00:06:32.216 --> 00:06:34.318
  • Isaiah was a prophet, but nextto God, Isaiah was a peasant,
  • 00:06:34.351 --> 00:06:40.024
  • a peon.
  • 00:06:40.057 --> 00:06:41.358
  • He was nothing.
  • 00:06:41.392 --> 00:06:43.327
  • And he gets this incrediblevision of God high and lifted
  • 00:06:43.360 --> 00:06:46.597
  • up, and the train of his robefilled the temple.
  • 00:06:46.630 --> 00:06:49.033
  • And this mighty prophet of God,all he could say is, "Woe is me,
  • 00:06:49.066 --> 00:06:54.004
  • for I am undone.
  • 00:06:54.038 --> 00:06:56.540
  • I'm a man of unclean lips.
  • 00:06:56.574 --> 00:06:57.908
  • I dwell amongst a generationof unclean lips,
  • 00:06:57.942 --> 00:07:00.611
  • for I have seen the Lord."
  • 00:07:00.644 --> 00:07:03.180
  • Another way of saying,"I'm ruined.
  • 00:07:03.214 --> 00:07:04.748
  • I'm destitute."
  • 00:07:04.782 --> 00:07:06.917
  • Now, a prophet might have said,"Wow is me.
  • 00:07:06.951 --> 00:07:11.188
  • I'm a prophet of God.
  • 00:07:11.222 --> 00:07:12.523
  • Wow is me," until he sees God,then it's, "Woe is me."
  • 00:07:12.556 --> 00:07:19.430
  • Another example is Peter.
  • 00:07:19.463 --> 00:07:20.798
  • Peter was a professionalfisherman, but next to Jesus
  • 00:07:20.831 --> 00:07:24.368
  • Christ, he's a failure.
  • 00:07:24.401 --> 00:07:27.538
  • Remember, Jesus said, "Peter,let's go fishing."
  • 00:07:27.571 --> 00:07:30.007
  • Peter said, "Well, I've beenfishing all night, have
  • 00:07:30.040 --> 00:07:32.343
  • caught nothing.
  • 00:07:32.376 --> 00:07:33.711
  • But okay, you want to gofishing, I'll humor you.
  • 00:07:33.744 --> 00:07:35.679
  • You're the preacher.
  • 00:07:35.713 --> 00:07:37.047
  • I'll take you out on the boat."
  • 00:07:37.081 --> 00:07:38.382
  • So he takes them out on theboat, he throws his net
  • 00:07:38.415 --> 00:07:40.918
  • overboard at Jesus's command,and he catches so much fish that
  • 00:07:40.951 --> 00:07:45.489
  • they have to bring in anotherboat, and both boats
  • 00:07:45.523 --> 00:07:47.491
  • almost sink.
  • 00:07:47.525 --> 00:07:48.926
  • All Peter can say at that pointin looking at Jesus is, "Depart
  • 00:07:48.959 --> 00:07:54.098
  • from me, Lord.
  • 00:07:54.131 --> 00:07:55.933
  • I'm a sinful man."
  • 00:07:55.966 --> 00:07:58.569
  • Before that, it was, "Here I am,your professional guide
  • 00:07:58.602 --> 00:08:02.273
  • and fisherman."
  • 00:08:02.306 --> 00:08:03.641
  • Now it's, "Depart from me.
  • 00:08:03.674 --> 00:08:05.075
  • I'm a sinful man."
  • 00:08:05.109 --> 00:08:06.443
  • You see, he sees himself nextto Jesus, imperfection
  • 00:08:06.477 --> 00:08:11.582
  • next to perfection.
  • 00:08:11.615 --> 00:08:14.318
  • If you sing in the shower,that's one thing, but if you
  • 00:08:14.351 --> 00:08:21.225
  • sing next to Tamra,that's quite another thing.
  • 00:08:21.258 --> 00:08:27.097
  • You know, I singevery now and then.
  • 00:08:27.131 --> 00:08:29.600
  • I play guitar and I sing, and Igo, "Hey, I sound pretty good."
  • 00:08:29.633 --> 00:08:32.570
  • When I sing next to Tamra, Idon't sing that--I don't sound
  • 00:08:32.603 --> 00:08:35.105
  • that good.
  • 00:08:35.139 --> 00:08:36.440
  • 'Cause she sounds so good,every note is always on key.
  • 00:08:36.473 --> 00:08:40.878
  • Am I embarrassing you right now?
  • 00:08:40.911 --> 00:08:42.246
  • Just a little bit, okay.
  • 00:08:42.279 --> 00:08:44.048
  • One time I was in Nashville,Tennessee, and I was out and
  • 00:08:44.081 --> 00:08:47.518
  • about, and I was lookin' inguitar shops and talkin' about
  • 00:08:47.551 --> 00:08:50.654
  • music, and a lot of people askme, "Do you play guitar?"
  • 00:08:50.688 --> 00:08:54.258
  • And I go, "Oh yeah,I play guitar."
  • 00:08:54.291 --> 00:08:55.960
  • And so I was with a friend wholived there and he goes,
  • 00:08:55.993 --> 00:08:58.162
  • "Can I just caution you?
  • 00:08:58.195 --> 00:08:59.530
  • When you answer that questionhere in Nashville,
  • 00:08:59.563 --> 00:09:03.867
  • it's different than answeringthat question anywhere else."
  • 00:09:03.901 --> 00:09:06.837
  • He said, "The guys that work atthe gas stations are better
  • 00:09:06.870 --> 00:09:09.406
  • players than most people,"and it's true.
  • 00:09:09.440 --> 00:09:11.742
  • I walked into a little drugstorein Nashville.
  • 00:09:11.775 --> 00:09:14.712
  • There were four peoplein the audience.
  • 00:09:14.745 --> 00:09:16.347
  • There was a guy playing bluesguitar and he was like, wow.
  • 00:09:16.380 --> 00:09:20.918
  • And all I could thinkis, "Woe is me.
  • 00:09:20.951 --> 00:09:25.389
  • I am undone."
  • 00:09:25.422 --> 00:09:26.991
  • That guy was incredible.
  • 00:09:27.024 --> 00:09:29.126
  • So that's how it is.
  • 00:09:29.159 --> 00:09:30.461
  • Job sees God.
  • 00:09:30.494 --> 00:09:31.829
  • Job sees himself.
  • 00:09:31.862 --> 00:09:33.163
  • Show me a prideful person andI'll show you somebody who has
  • 00:09:33.197 --> 00:09:36.233
  • not encountered God.
  • 00:09:36.266 --> 00:09:38.135
  • You cannot encounter the LivingGod and walk away with pride.
  • 00:09:38.168 --> 00:09:43.440
  • Just like John the Apostle gota vision of Jesus Christ
  • 00:09:43.474 --> 00:09:46.410
  • in Revelation.
  • 00:09:46.443 --> 00:09:47.778
  • He hit the deck.
  • 00:09:47.811 --> 00:09:49.113
  • He fell at his feet as dead.
  • 00:09:49.146 --> 00:09:52.082
  • He encountered a Holy God.
  • 00:09:52.116 --> 00:09:55.152
  • And you find this in olderworship songs, and I just want
  • 00:09:55.185 --> 00:09:59.390
  • to give a plug to you who arewriting modern worship songs.
  • 00:09:59.423 --> 00:10:03.927
  • Older worship songs seem tovalue the majesty of God along
  • 00:10:03.961 --> 00:10:09.667
  • with the inadequacy of humanity.
  • 00:10:09.700 --> 00:10:13.671
  • Think of the great hymn,"Amazing Grace."
  • 00:10:13.704 --> 00:10:16.740
  • "Amazing grace, how sweetthe sound that saved
  • 00:10:16.774 --> 00:10:21.045
  • a wretch like me.
  • 00:10:21.078 --> 00:10:23.414
  • I once was blind,but now I see."
  • 00:10:23.447 --> 00:10:26.450
  • Or the song by John Newton,"Alas, and did my Savior bleed,
  • 00:10:26.483 --> 00:10:31.488
  • and did my sovereign die?
  • 00:10:31.522 --> 00:10:33.390
  • Would he devote that sacred headfor such a worm as I?"
  • 00:10:33.424 --> 00:10:39.897
  • Now, the reason they use thatkind of language that is
  • 00:10:39.930 --> 00:10:42.900
  • so self-deprecating is 'causethey were so in awe of God.
  • 00:10:42.933 --> 00:10:47.037
  • So he sees the majesty of God.
  • 00:10:47.071 --> 00:10:49.740
  • He discovers theinadequacy of man.
  • 00:10:49.773 --> 00:10:52.443
  • There's a third monumentaldiscovery that he makes and that
  • 00:10:52.476 --> 00:10:56.780
  • is the generosityof God toward man.
  • 00:10:56.814 --> 00:11:00.984
  • Yes, God is awesome, yes,I'm not, but God is so good.
  • 00:11:01.018 --> 00:11:07.391
  • So if you look over at chapter42, and it says in verse 10, it
  • 00:11:07.424 --> 00:11:15.432
  • says, "So Eliphaz the Temanite,Bildad the Shuhite, Zophar the
  • 00:11:15.466 --> 00:11:19.837
  • Naamathite went and did as theLord commanded them; for the
  • 00:11:19.870 --> 00:11:22.906
  • Lord had accepted Job.
  • 00:11:22.940 --> 00:11:27.010
  • And the Lord restored Job'slosses when he prayed for
  • 00:11:27.044 --> 00:11:31.548
  • his friends.
  • 00:11:31.582 --> 00:11:33.050
  • Indeed the Lord gave Job twiceas much as he had before.
  • 00:11:33.083 --> 00:11:40.591
  • Then all his brothers, and allhis sisters, and all those who
  • 00:11:40.624 --> 00:11:44.561
  • had been his acquaintancesbefore, came to him and ate food
  • 00:11:44.595 --> 00:11:48.699
  • with him in his house; and theyconsoled him and comforted him
  • 00:11:48.732 --> 00:11:53.670
  • for all the adversity that theLord had brought upon him.
  • 00:11:53.704 --> 00:11:56.907
  • Each one gave a piece of silverand each a ring of gold."
  • 00:11:56.940 --> 00:12:03.347
  • Can I just say that it feelsgood to read that after all that
  • 00:12:03.380 --> 00:12:07.384
  • Job has gone through, after allthe things he has lost, after
  • 00:12:07.417 --> 00:12:11.355
  • all the pain thathas racked his body?
  • 00:12:11.388 --> 00:12:14.258
  • And I just want those words foryou to sink in, that there's
  • 00:12:14.291 --> 00:12:18.328
  • always light at the endof whatever tunnel
  • 00:12:18.362 --> 00:12:20.931
  • you're going through.
  • 00:12:20.964 --> 00:12:23.100
  • These are words of generosity.
  • 00:12:23.133 --> 00:12:24.968
  • This is a generous God wholoves to bless people.
  • 00:12:25.002 --> 00:12:29.506
  • So after God reveals to Job hismajesty and after Job confesses
  • 00:12:29.540 --> 00:12:34.778
  • his inadequacy, God revealsto him his generosity.
  • 00:12:34.812 --> 00:12:39.416
  • He just pours twiceas much on him.
  • 00:12:39.449 --> 00:12:43.320
  • And now Job is walking in asense of humility in his
  • 00:12:43.353 --> 00:12:47.090
  • restored state, muchmore than even beforehand.
  • 00:12:47.124 --> 00:12:52.229
  • Somebody once asked Francisof Assisi how he was able
  • 00:12:52.262 --> 00:12:56.867
  • to accomplish so much and hereplied this, "God looked down
  • 00:12:56.900 --> 00:13:01.305
  • from heaven and said, 'Where canI find the weakest, littlest man
  • 00:13:01.338 --> 00:13:06.710
  • on earth?'
  • 00:13:06.743 --> 00:13:08.412
  • And he saw me and he said,'I found him.
  • 00:13:08.445 --> 00:13:12.049
  • I will work through him andhe won't be proud of it.
  • 00:13:12.082 --> 00:13:16.954
  • He will see that I'm onlyusing him because of
  • 00:13:16.987 --> 00:13:19.990
  • his insignificance.'"
  • 00:13:20.023 --> 00:13:22.159
  • God has chosen the foolishthings of this world
  • 00:13:22.192 --> 00:13:25.095
  • to confound the wise.
  • 00:13:25.128 --> 00:13:26.430
  • Job, the greatest man of theEast, is now Job in humility
  • 00:13:26.463 --> 00:13:31.235
  • enjoying the generosity of God.
  • 00:13:31.268 --> 00:13:33.704
  • And you know what?
  • 00:13:33.737 --> 00:13:35.038
  • Let's just say this.
  • 00:13:35.072 --> 00:13:36.406
  • Even if God had not done this,God is good, what?
  • 00:13:36.440 --> 00:13:42.112
  • All the time.All the time.
  • 00:13:42.145 --> 00:13:45.349
  • Because there's not necessarilya promise that God's going
  • 00:13:45.382 --> 00:13:47.818
  • to give you twice as muchas what he--what you had
  • 00:13:47.851 --> 00:13:50.420
  • before COVID-19.
  • 00:13:50.454 --> 00:13:52.122
  • It's like, "Okay, well I'mclaiming this promise for me."
  • 00:13:52.155 --> 00:13:54.524
  • Maybe, maybe not.
  • 00:13:54.558 --> 00:13:56.059
  • We don't know, but God is good,and God is generous,
  • 00:13:56.093 --> 00:14:00.964
  • and Job experienced that.
  • 00:14:00.998 --> 00:14:02.633
  • So three monumental discoveries.
  • 00:14:02.666 --> 00:14:04.401
  • God revealed this to him,which leads Job to make
  • 00:14:04.434 --> 00:14:09.406
  • one essential decision.
  • 00:14:09.439 --> 00:14:12.075
  • And he says in verse 5 ofchapter 42, "I have heard of you
  • 00:14:12.109 --> 00:14:17.681
  • by the hearing of the ear,but now my eye sees you.
  • 00:14:17.714 --> 00:14:22.552
  • Therefore," here's his decision,"Therefore I abhor myself," and
  • 00:14:22.586 --> 00:14:28.392
  • here's the real crux of thedecision, "and I repent in dust
  • 00:14:28.425 --> 00:14:36.199
  • and ashes."
  • 00:14:36.233 --> 00:14:38.268
  • To me this is significantbecause Job is saying it.
  • 00:14:38.302 --> 00:14:43.040
  • Now, if Matt said, "I repent,"I'd get that.
  • 00:14:43.073 --> 00:14:45.108
  • No, sorry Matt.
  • 00:14:45.142 --> 00:14:46.476
  • If I said it, we'd all get that,say, "Okay, there's a lot that
  • 00:14:46.510 --> 00:14:48.745
  • Skip has to repent for."
  • 00:14:48.779 --> 00:14:50.113
  • But this is Job saying,"I repent."
  • 00:14:50.147 --> 00:14:54.952
  • And you might ask, "Well, whatdid Job have to repent of?"
  • 00:14:54.985 --> 00:15:00.123
  • Well, if you know the book ofJob and if you've read through
  • 00:15:00.157 --> 00:15:03.627
  • it, pride is one of them.
  • 00:15:03.660 --> 00:15:07.597
  • That comes out in the book.
  • 00:15:07.631 --> 00:15:09.633
  • Arrogance, hubris,animosity toward God.
  • 00:15:09.666 --> 00:15:13.303
  • Let's just call it attitude.
  • 00:15:13.337 --> 00:15:15.205
  • He had a bad attitude.
  • 00:15:15.238 --> 00:15:17.040
  • His attitude demanded that Godowe him an explanation for the
  • 00:15:17.074 --> 00:15:21.745
  • suffering he was going through.
  • 00:15:21.778 --> 00:15:23.547
  • He repents because nowhe knows God better.
  • 00:15:23.580 --> 00:15:28.418
  • So here's what I wantyou to see.
  • 00:15:28.452 --> 00:15:29.786
  • Before, his focus wason why, right?
  • 00:15:29.820 --> 00:15:33.557
  • Now his focus is on who.
  • 00:15:33.590 --> 00:15:37.027
  • Not, "Why?
  • 00:15:37.060 --> 00:15:38.362
  • Why is this happening to me?
  • 00:15:38.395 --> 00:15:39.730
  • Why would a God of loveallow this?"
  • 00:15:39.763 --> 00:15:41.298
  • but "Who?"
  • 00:15:41.331 --> 00:15:43.800
  • So he's saying, "I don't need toknow why, I just need
  • 00:15:43.834 --> 00:15:46.970
  • to know God.
  • 00:15:47.004 --> 00:15:48.739
  • And I know God better now.
  • 00:15:48.772 --> 00:15:50.107
  • God just schooled me.
  • 00:15:50.140 --> 00:15:51.441
  • God just showed me around theuniverse, told me what he did,
  • 00:15:51.475 --> 00:15:53.110
  • and I get it now.
  • 00:15:53.143 --> 00:15:54.444
  • I understand how awesome he isand how inadequate I am."
  • 00:15:54.478 --> 00:15:59.716
  • A lot of times people ask,"Where is God during a crisis?
  • 00:15:59.750 --> 00:16:02.619
  • Where was God at 9/11?
  • 00:16:02.652 --> 00:16:04.821
  • Where was God in Wuhan, Chinawhen this thing got out of line
  • 00:16:04.855 --> 00:16:08.258
  • and covered the world?
  • 00:16:08.291 --> 00:16:09.593
  • Where was God?"
  • 00:16:09.626 --> 00:16:10.961
  • I'll tell you where God was.
  • 00:16:10.994 --> 00:16:12.295
  • God was there.
  • 00:16:12.329 --> 00:16:14.131
  • God was in the same place he waswhen he put his Son on a cross.
  • 00:16:14.164 --> 00:16:19.503
  • That was suffering.
  • 00:16:19.536 --> 00:16:20.871
  • God was there.
  • 00:16:20.904 --> 00:16:24.041
  • So Job has gotten a glimpse ofGod with his eyes of faith.
  • 00:16:24.074 --> 00:16:29.413
  • "Now my eye sees youand I repent."
  • 00:16:29.446 --> 00:16:33.550
  • And for him, just getting thatglimpse with his eyes of faith,
  • 00:16:33.583 --> 00:16:36.486
  • that's enough for Job.
  • 00:16:36.520 --> 00:16:39.089
  • Now, at the point that he saysthis, I read ahead to see the
  • 00:16:39.122 --> 00:16:41.691
  • generosity of God, but at thepoint that Job says,
  • 00:16:41.725 --> 00:16:45.896
  • "Wow, you're awesome.
  • 00:16:45.929 --> 00:16:47.230
  • I'm not.
  • 00:16:47.264 --> 00:16:48.598
  • It's all about who, not why.
  • 00:16:48.632 --> 00:16:50.567
  • I repent in dust and ashes,"at this point he is still
  • 00:16:50.600 --> 00:16:54.137
  • on an ash heap.
  • 00:16:54.171 --> 00:16:56.106
  • He is still in aloathsome state.
  • 00:16:56.139 --> 00:16:59.009
  • He still has the diseasein his body.
  • 00:16:59.042 --> 00:17:02.279
  • That's why he says, "I repent indust and ashes," 'cause that's
  • 00:17:02.312 --> 00:17:05.682
  • where he's sitting.
  • 00:17:05.715 --> 00:17:08.251
  • So this is beforethe restoration.
  • 00:17:08.285 --> 00:17:11.021
  • So the ash heap has not changed,the circumstances have not
  • 00:17:11.054 --> 00:17:14.958
  • changed, but Job's hearthas changed.
  • 00:17:14.991 --> 00:17:18.128
  • That's what repentance means,a change of heart.
  • 00:17:18.161 --> 00:17:21.098
  • I repent.
  • 00:17:21.131 --> 00:17:23.467
  • I got a question this weekon social media.
  • 00:17:23.500 --> 00:17:26.536
  • I posted on my social mediaa question.
  • 00:17:26.570 --> 00:17:29.806
  • I said, "What has the Lord beenrevealing to you about
  • 00:17:29.840 --> 00:17:32.709
  • yourself lately?"
  • 00:17:32.742 --> 00:17:34.878
  • And one person wrote in responseand said, "What comes after
  • 00:17:34.911 --> 00:17:40.250
  • you've been shown the truthabout yourself?"
  • 00:17:40.283 --> 00:17:43.420
  • That was a question.
  • 00:17:43.453 --> 00:17:44.788
  • So I asked the question, thequestion was answered
  • 00:17:44.821 --> 00:17:46.123
  • with a question.
  • 00:17:46.156 --> 00:17:47.491
  • "What has God been revealingabout yourself?"
  • 00:17:47.524 --> 00:17:49.593
  • The response is, "Well, what doyou do after God reveals
  • 00:17:49.626 --> 00:17:52.496
  • the truth about yourself?"
  • 00:17:52.529 --> 00:17:53.830
  • And the person said,"Practical steps please."
  • 00:17:53.864 --> 00:17:57.100
  • What do you do if God--once gotshows you the real you?
  • 00:17:57.134 --> 00:18:00.470
  • What do you do?
  • 00:18:00.504 --> 00:18:01.805
  • What are the practical steps?
  • 00:18:01.838 --> 00:18:03.173
  • Well, let's ask Job.
  • 00:18:03.206 --> 00:18:04.508
  • Job was shown God and hewas shown himself.
  • 00:18:04.541 --> 00:18:07.611
  • What did he do?
  • 00:18:07.644 --> 00:18:09.379
  • He repented.
  • 00:18:09.412 --> 00:18:11.715
  • That's the practical step.
  • 00:18:11.748 --> 00:18:13.350
  • He repented.
  • 00:18:13.383 --> 00:18:15.252
  • Now, let's drill downa little bit.
  • 00:18:15.285 --> 00:18:17.888
  • Repentance is one of the keytopics, issues, principles
  • 00:18:17.921 --> 00:18:24.528
  • in Scripture.
  • 00:18:24.561 --> 00:18:26.329
  • It shows up a lot.
  • 00:18:26.363 --> 00:18:28.832
  • More so in the New Testamentthan even the Old Testament.
  • 00:18:28.865 --> 00:18:32.435
  • Fifty-five times in the NewTestament, "repent," "repented,"
  • 00:18:32.469 --> 00:18:37.440
  • or "repentance" shows up,so it is an oft use word.
  • 00:18:37.474 --> 00:18:42.746
  • John the Baptist's first sermoncould've been entitled, "Repent,
  • 00:18:42.779 --> 00:18:47.984
  • You Slimy Snakes," right?
  • 00:18:48.018 --> 00:18:50.554
  • Isn't that what he said?
  • 00:18:50.587 --> 00:18:51.922
  • "You brood of vipers, repent."
  • 00:18:51.955 --> 00:18:54.024
  • He called them to repentance.
  • 00:18:54.057 --> 00:18:55.358
  • That was his first sermon rightout of the chute.
  • 00:18:55.392 --> 00:18:59.029
  • Among Jesus's first words were,"Repent, for the kingdom of
  • 00:18:59.062 --> 00:19:04.434
  • heaven is at hand."
  • 00:19:04.467 --> 00:19:07.737
  • Now, we hear the term"repentance" and we typically
  • 00:19:07.771 --> 00:19:11.474
  • think, unbeliever.
  • 00:19:11.508 --> 00:19:13.543
  • Unbelievers need to repent.
  • 00:19:13.577 --> 00:19:15.278
  • It's words for an unbeliever.
  • 00:19:15.312 --> 00:19:18.782
  • The word "repent" meansto think differently.
  • 00:19:18.815 --> 00:19:21.017
  • It means to reconsider.
  • 00:19:21.051 --> 00:19:22.352
  • It means to change one'sdirection, or as I said, have
  • 00:19:22.385 --> 00:19:25.121
  • a change of heart.
  • 00:19:25.155 --> 00:19:27.157
  • Now, Job was a godly man.
  • 00:19:27.190 --> 00:19:28.725
  • God said he was a godly man.
  • 00:19:28.758 --> 00:19:30.227
  • He said, "Have you consideredmy servant, Job?
  • 00:19:30.260 --> 00:19:31.962
  • He's upright and blameless.
  • 00:19:31.995 --> 00:19:33.296
  • There's nobody on earthlike Job."
  • 00:19:33.330 --> 00:19:36.032
  • God bragged about him.
  • 00:19:36.066 --> 00:19:38.368
  • So this godly man that Godshowcased and bragged about
  • 00:19:38.401 --> 00:19:43.240
  • just said, "I repent."
  • 00:19:43.273 --> 00:19:45.575
  • The godliest dude around said,"I repent."
  • 00:19:45.609 --> 00:19:49.913
  • Why did he repent?
  • 00:19:49.946 --> 00:19:51.748
  • Because repentance is a changeof lifestyle.
  • 00:19:51.781 --> 00:19:54.251
  • That's what he's saying heneeded, even with the attitude
  • 00:19:54.284 --> 00:19:57.554
  • of pride against God.
  • 00:19:57.587 --> 00:20:00.857
  • You see, repentance isn't justfor unbelievers to initiate
  • 00:20:00.890 --> 00:20:04.327
  • salvation, repentance is alsofor believers to
  • 00:20:04.361 --> 00:20:07.964
  • substantiate salvation.
  • 00:20:07.998 --> 00:20:10.500
  • It is an ongoing thing thathappens in the life of a person.
  • 00:20:10.533 --> 00:20:14.404
  • Once they have initiallyrepented, now you learned how to
  • 00:20:14.437 --> 00:20:18.008
  • do it, now you keep doing itas God reveals more to you.
  • 00:20:18.041 --> 00:20:22.078
  • The more God reveals to youabout himself, the more God
  • 00:20:22.112 --> 00:20:25.615
  • reveals to you about yourself,the more you and I need
  • 00:20:25.649 --> 00:20:29.552
  • to repent.
  • 00:20:29.586 --> 00:20:31.821
  • You get to the book ofRevelation, Jesus writes
  • 00:20:31.855 --> 00:20:34.124
  • to seven churches.
  • 00:20:34.157 --> 00:20:36.192
  • To the church at Ephesus, hesaid, "Remember, therefore,
  • 00:20:36.226 --> 00:20:39.763
  • from where you have fallen.
  • 00:20:39.796 --> 00:20:41.131
  • Repent and do your first works."
  • 00:20:41.164 --> 00:20:45.068
  • To the church at Pergamos, Jesussaid, "Repent or else I will
  • 00:20:45.101 --> 00:20:49.239
  • come to you quickly."
  • 00:20:49.272 --> 00:20:50.607
  • To the church at Thyatira, hesaid, "I gave her time to
  • 00:20:50.640 --> 00:20:54.544
  • repent, but she did not repent."
  • 00:20:54.577 --> 00:20:58.281
  • So repentance, obviously then,if he's speaking to churches,
  • 00:20:58.315 --> 00:21:03.320
  • is something for believers,not just unbelievers.
  • 00:21:03.353 --> 00:21:06.623
  • Repentance is not just neededto enter into eternal life,
  • 00:21:06.656 --> 00:21:11.361
  • repentance is something to enjoyeternal life for the believer.
  • 00:21:11.394 --> 00:21:17.133
  • 'Cause let me ask you a simplequestion, when is change in your
  • 00:21:17.167 --> 00:21:20.570
  • life ever not needed?
  • 00:21:20.603 --> 00:21:24.074
  • When have you--when do you everstop growing in your spiritual
  • 00:21:24.107 --> 00:21:27.077
  • walk on this earth, ever?
  • 00:21:27.110 --> 00:21:29.446
  • Not for me.
  • 00:21:29.479 --> 00:21:31.481
  • Our growth is never completed.
  • 00:21:31.514 --> 00:21:32.949
  • So as God reveals who he is, andwho you are, and who others are,
  • 00:21:32.982 --> 00:21:36.519
  • we adjust to that, and thatadjustment is called repentance.
  • 00:21:36.553 --> 00:21:40.523
  • So for example, if you're angryat your spouse and then you hear
  • 00:21:40.557 --> 00:21:45.362
  • a sermon on forgivenessand love, you repent.
  • 00:21:45.395 --> 00:21:50.467
  • You adjust.
  • 00:21:50.500 --> 00:21:51.801
  • If you're immoral, sleepingaround with your boyfriend
  • 00:21:51.835 --> 00:21:55.672
  • or girlfriend, and you readin the Bible, "Avoid sexual
  • 00:21:55.705 --> 00:21:59.809
  • immorality," what do youdo at that point?
  • 00:21:59.843 --> 00:22:01.511
  • You repent.
  • 00:22:01.544 --> 00:22:03.680
  • If you are indifferent towardspiritual things and you hear
  • 00:22:03.713 --> 00:22:07.784
  • a message that pricks your heartand sparks spiritual life
  • 00:22:07.817 --> 00:22:11.855
  • in you, what do you do?
  • 00:22:11.888 --> 00:22:13.189
  • You repent.
  • 00:22:13.223 --> 00:22:14.557
  • Revelation should leadto repentance.
  • 00:22:14.591 --> 00:22:18.928
  • Revelation should alwayslead to repentance.
  • 00:22:18.962 --> 00:22:22.065
  • Discovery leads to a decision.
  • 00:22:22.098 --> 00:22:24.734
  • The decision he makes is,"I abhor myself, and I repent
  • 00:22:24.768 --> 00:22:28.405
  • in dust and ashes."
  • 00:22:28.438 --> 00:22:30.707
  • So three monumentaldiscoveries followed by
  • 00:22:30.740 --> 00:22:33.910
  • an essential decision.
  • 00:22:33.943 --> 00:22:35.578
  • He discovers the majesty of God,he discovers the inadequacy of
  • 00:22:35.612 --> 00:22:39.649
  • humanity, and he discovers thegenerosity of God toward man,
  • 00:22:39.682 --> 00:22:44.053
  • and all that he's left with is,"Okay, I get it.
  • 00:22:44.087 --> 00:22:46.723
  • I don't completely understandwhy, but I know who,
  • 00:22:46.756 --> 00:22:50.527
  • and that's enough.
  • 00:22:50.560 --> 00:22:51.895
  • I repent in dust and ashes."
  • 00:22:51.928 --> 00:22:54.364
  • So we've had five weeks speakingabout an amazing man, and I
  • 00:22:54.397 --> 00:23:00.870
  • think this is a fittingway to end it.
  • 00:23:00.904 --> 00:23:02.839
  • I think this is a fitting way toend our lock down, and I want to
  • 00:23:02.872 --> 00:23:06.876
  • read to you something thatOswald Sanders wrote in a book,
  • 00:23:06.910 --> 00:23:11.514
  • though he confesses he doesn'tknow who wrote it.
  • 00:23:11.548 --> 00:23:13.883
  • It's anonymous, but I like whatit says as he did.
  • 00:23:13.917 --> 00:23:19.522
  • It says, "When God wants todrill a man, and thrill a man,
  • 00:23:19.556 --> 00:23:23.359
  • and skill a man, when God wantsto mold a man to play
  • 00:23:23.393 --> 00:23:28.698
  • the noblest part.
  • 00:23:28.731 --> 00:23:30.066
  • When he yearns with all hisheart to create so great and
  • 00:23:30.099 --> 00:23:34.504
  • bold a man," or woman, "that allthe world shall be amazed,
  • 00:23:34.537 --> 00:23:40.877
  • watch his methods,watch his ways.
  • 00:23:40.910 --> 00:23:43.379
  • How he ruthlessly perfectswhom he royally elects.
  • 00:23:43.413 --> 00:23:49.285
  • How he hammers him and hurtshim, and with mighty blows
  • 00:23:49.319 --> 00:23:54.591
  • converts him into trial shapesof clay, which only God
  • 00:23:54.624 --> 00:23:59.028
  • understands, while his torturedheart is crying and he lifts
  • 00:23:59.062 --> 00:24:03.766
  • beseeching hands.
  • 00:24:03.800 --> 00:24:05.201
  • How he bends, but never breakswhen his goodness he undertakes.
  • 00:24:05.235 --> 00:24:09.973
  • How he uses whom he chooseswith every purpose fuses him,
  • 00:24:10.006 --> 00:24:16.179
  • by every act induces himto try his splendor out.
  • 00:24:16.212 --> 00:24:20.884
  • God knows what he's about."
  • 00:24:20.917 --> 00:24:25.522
  • God has used this coronavirus.
  • 00:24:25.555 --> 00:24:28.791
  • He's used it in my life.
  • 00:24:28.825 --> 00:24:30.159
  • Has he used it in your life?
  • 00:24:30.193 --> 00:24:32.228
  • Maybe you've felt hammeredby these blows,
  • 00:24:32.262 --> 00:24:35.732
  • over and over again.
  • 00:24:35.765 --> 00:24:37.133
  • And I love that line here whereit says, "And with mighty blows
  • 00:24:37.166 --> 00:24:40.036
  • converts him."
  • 00:24:40.069 --> 00:24:42.605
  • Are you being changed?
  • 00:24:42.639 --> 00:24:43.940
  • Are you being converted?
  • 00:24:43.973 --> 00:24:45.308
  • Are you repenting as God revealshimself and yourself to you?
  • 00:24:45.341 --> 00:24:50.613
  • And maybe it's true that you'venever been converted.
  • 00:24:50.647 --> 00:24:53.249
  • You've never personallycome to Christ.
  • 00:24:53.283 --> 00:24:55.752
  • We've seen many during theseseries come to Christ, but maybe
  • 00:24:55.785 --> 00:24:58.788
  • you're still in a place whereyou're holding onto you.
  • 00:24:58.821 --> 00:25:01.724
  • Maybe you've got an attitude.
  • 00:25:01.758 --> 00:25:04.627
  • You need to get a glimpseof God, friend.
  • 00:25:04.661 --> 00:25:07.864
  • Because once you see God for whohe is, in his power, in his
  • 00:25:07.897 --> 00:25:12.402
  • splendor, in his strength,in his capability, in your
  • 00:25:12.435 --> 00:25:16.372
  • inadequacy, you're not gonna go,"Wow is me," you're gonna go,
  • 00:25:16.406 --> 00:25:21.077
  • "Woe is me."
  • 00:25:21.110 --> 00:25:22.512
  • And now's a good time to saythat to him, to confess to him
  • 00:25:22.545 --> 00:25:28.051
  • your need for him, because Godisn't just about showing off
  • 00:25:28.084 --> 00:25:32.589
  • his power.
  • 00:25:32.622 --> 00:25:33.957
  • God is all about forgivingthose who have none.
  • 00:25:33.990 --> 00:25:36.359
  • He's about loving the weak.
  • 00:25:36.392 --> 00:25:38.728
  • He's about loving the sinful.
  • 00:25:38.761 --> 00:25:40.430
  • He's about seeing who you areand taking you just as you are.
  • 00:25:40.463 --> 00:25:45.435
  • He's about providing a waythrough the shed blood of his
  • 00:25:45.468 --> 00:25:49.305
  • Son to bring you into favorwith him and into heaven
  • 00:25:49.339 --> 00:25:53.576
  • with him forever.
  • 00:25:53.610 --> 00:25:55.311
  • If you want that, you just say,"I want that, Lord.
  • 00:25:55.345 --> 00:25:58.314
  • I need that.I come to you.
  • 00:25:58.348 --> 00:25:59.649
  • Take me."
  • 00:25:59.682 --> 00:26:01.250
  • It's that simple.It's a step of faith.
  • 00:26:01.284 --> 00:26:03.386
  • Scott Dooley: That's SkipHeitzig with excellent
  • 00:26:07.056 --> 00:26:08.992

  • This is Scott Dooley, and I wantto introduce you to a book that

  • As we discover who God is andhow aware he is of the human

  • condition, we should be inspiredto know him more each day.
