    “80% of a book’s main insights are found in 20% of the pages. So without apology, I ransack books for what I can get in the little time I have in this season of life.” – David Mathis.

    In the book’s first cycle, Job’s friends’ speeches were halted by the revelation of God’s wisdom. The new element in the second cycle is that Elihu’s speech is interrupted by the dramatic appearance of God himself (Job ). At last, God fulfills Job’s desire for a face-to-face encounter. You see, the thing is, though God called each person in a different way, every one of them had plans for their life that were seemingly interrupted by God’s greater purpose. We should be open to the same. The truth is, when we faithfully follow God there will be times when He throws us a curve ball.
