Enlightened with the light of life

Job Bible Background

07.06.2017 – Old Testament: Job 33.29–30

To read the Bible in a year, read Job 33–34 on July 6, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

Elihu explained to Job how God works, and that ultimately what God does in the life of men and women is for the enlightenment of their lives,

“Behold, God works all these things,
Twice, in fact, three times with a man,
To bring back his soul from the Pit,
That he may be enlightened with the light of life.”
(Job 33.29–30) 

We may not see it, but truly God does work in our lives to make them better, but we have to cooperate with Him, believing that He knows best and that in the end, we will better understand why life turned out the way that it did.


  • Can you see God’s hand in your life right now?
  • Have you see it in the past?
