Job made it a practice to get up early and to sanctify his sons every morning (2). His mind was not occupied with a business deal or controlled by the monetary system. Instead, Job did what we must do. That is, when we arise each morning, we are to praise and worship Jesus Christ, and take in Bible doctrine.
Oh, for the discipline of patience. Job said, “I do not know that my children have sinned, but maybe they have. Just in case, I am going to intercede for them early in the morning.” So, he interceded for his seven sons and three daughters. He knew what was best in bringing up his children. He knew that in Mark 9:42, “Whosoever offends one of these little ones,” offended the Lord. He knew, “the way of the wicked [is] as darkness: they know not at what they stumble (Proverbs 4:19). He said to God, “Maybe they will stumble today… if we do not help.” He did not allow his life to be a stumbling block to his children.
It is easy to wait until we have a need to pray, but we need to learn to have dedication to praying even before we see a need. It should be a part of our life.
