    S3:073 Job 27

    S3:073 Job 27

    How can I fight the enemy with my actions? A common question for Christians, with many different answers. Emma Dotter interviews Lucas Esteves as he gives the listeners what may feel like a simple answer, but if you are willing to truly apply this practice, it can be radical. Lucas says we are simply to “Praise the Lord.” By using additional Scriptures throughout the Bible, Lucas articulates the example of Jesus in praising God amidst all circumstances.   Additional Scriptures used in today’s podcast: Matthew 12:33-37, “for out of the abundance of the heart man speaks… I tell you on the day of judgement  Matthew 15:11, “It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”  Job 1:21, “blessed be the name of the Lord…” Job 2:10, “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak Psalm 22:1, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”  Psalm 103:1-5, “Bless the Lord oh my soul, let all that is within me…” Matthew 27:46, “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eli, Eli, elm sabachthani?’ That is ‘My God, my God why have you forsaken me?’”  Grab a Join The Journey Journal through the book of Psalms: https://a.co/d/7rt0H3g  Got kids?

    S3:071 Job 25

    S3:071 Job 25

    How do I have peace when I feel far from God? All of us have a desire to have the answer to this question not only for ourselves, but also to help others. Emma Dotter connects the moon, man, and maggots to how God’s faithful character can give peace in the hardest trials.   Additional Scripture in the Podcast: Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Gen. 3, Evidence of humanity’s sin. Gen. 1-2, Humans are made in God’s image and therefore have value.  Luke 12:7, “Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.”  Isaiah 53:6a, “All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way.” Romans 5:6-11, “For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly…” Hebrews 4:14-16, “Since then, we have a great high priest who has passed through the heaves, Jesus, the son of God, let us hold fast our confession…” Psalm 3 & 7 & 55 & 56 & 59, Prayer pattern seen throughout the Psalms.   Grab a Join The Journey Journal through the book of Psalms: https://a.co/d/7rt0H3g  Got kids?

    S3:070 Job 24

    S3:070 Job 24

    Job is asking the exact questions that we may be feeling as we read. Emma Dotter interviews Ben Krejci, a Watermark member and consistent friend of the podcast. Ben articulates two common problems believers can have when trials come: we have a hesitancy to ask God questions, and we have a hesitancy to be frustrated. Job gives us an example of how to disagree with God.  Yes you can ask questions, and yes you can be frustrated, but also doing those without sin.   Additional Scripture in Podcast: Ecclesiastes 7:15, “There is a righteous man who perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man who prolongs his life in his evildoing.” Psalm 62:8, “Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.”  Want to hear more from Ben?

    S3:068 Job 22

    S3:068 Job 22

    As we continue to read through Job, we see that Job’s friends give bad advice. But what do we do when we are the “Job” and we get bad advice? How do we know if it is good or bad? Today, Emma Dotter is joined by Hannah Staubs, as they unpack the bad advice of Eliphaz and how to discern good advice.   Additional Scripture Used in this Podcast:  James 1:5-6, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God…” Jeremiah 29:13, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with your whole heart.” Proverbs 1:7, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Matthew 18, How to have godly conflict Proverbs 27:12, “The prudent sees danger and hides himself, and the simple go on an suffer for it.  Colossians 3, Old life before Christ and new life in Christ Proverbs 18:1, “Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sounds judgement.”  Proverbs 27:6, “Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.” Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” Proverbs 21:12, “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart.”  Grab a Join The Journey Journal through the book of Psalms: https://a.co/d/7rt0H3g  Got kids?

Great podcast!

I love having a daily, quick devo like JTJ. Getting into the word every day and hearing intelligent people talk about it on this podcast has given me a structure in my Bible reading life.
