Awake God in your rightful Habitat

“…If you would earnestly seek God And make your supplication to the Almighty, If you were pure and upright, Surely now He would awake for you, And prosper your rightful dwelling place…”Job 8:5-6 NKJV

Sometimes in life it seems as though the Lord has gone on sleep as far as our situation is concerned. We try everything, but nothing works…God seems to be doing nothing to intervene in our situation. This is what Job was facing as detailed in Job Chapter 7, he cries out to God seeking to understand what it is that he has done or is doing wrong. His friend, Bildad, respond by telling him “what to do to awaken God” for his situation. Four things you need to do, says Bildad to Job.

ONE, earnestly (diligently, sincerely and seriously) seek God, to know Him and his will for his life; TWO, be pure and upright (motives, clean and contrite heart the Lord will not despise); THREE, make a supplication (entreat, request, plea) to Him of wants/desires and FOUR, remain in a rightful place…other translations says, “rightful habitat” habitat means ones ecology (geographical location), economy (career, work, profession) and acumen (state of mind)…are you in your rightful habitat?
