Job 12:9,10

Who knoweth not in all these (creatures) that
the hand of the Lord hath wrought this? In
whose hand is the soul of every living thing,
and the breath of all mankind.

How do I respond to the thought that every living thing has a soul,
a soul which is in the care of God?

My God is large enough to care about every living thing on the earth.

I praise You and wonder about You, Creator God, for all your involvement
in your Creation.

Job 9:20,21

If I justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me:
if I say, I am perfect, yet would I not know my soul:
I would despise my life.

How does perfectionism keep me from knowing my own soul?

I enjoy freedom from self-justification.

Father God, please forgive my arrogance in having thought that I
could judge or justify my own soul.

1 Kings 17:21-22

And he (Elijah) stretched himself upon the child
three times, and cried unto the Lord, and said, O my God,
I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again.
And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah, and the soul
of the child came into him again, and he revived.

How could the man of God bring the child's soul back into his body?

God has all the power over life and death.

I am completely in awe of your power, Lord God; and I praise
you for your supreme will in every situation.
