1. Age and experience do not always equal maturity in a person. Elihu asserts that thought he is young in age, he can still speak for God and have the Spirit of God place words in his mouth. The Apostle Paul carries this truth over in the New Testament (1 Timothy 4:11-14) and tells the church that a mature believer is one who gives grace and has humility, knowing they have much room to still grow. A mature Christian is one who relies only on the power of the Spirit and one who speaks with grace in the Spirit. A mature Christian is one who realizes they have been forgive much and shown much grace by God, so they in turn give this same grace and forgiveness to others. A mature Christian is one, who in both deed and word, points others to the cross and the glory of God. A mature Christian is one who is not a stumbling block to other people, both in the church and outside as well. So a mature Christian does not equal any age, they can be both young and old. And the same is true for the other side of the coin, an immature Christian can be any age, both young and old.
2. God is speaking today. Elihu asserts in the middle of chapter 33, that God is speaking to people and is not silent. This is very true still today. When you hold the Bible in your hand, you are holding God’s Word and God speaking. All we have to do to know and hear God is open His Word. We do not need special visions or times to hear from God. We can hear from God anytime we want. You want to know God’s will for your life? Open the Bible and read, it is in there. Want to know what to do in a certain or any situation? You do not have to ask, WWJD, you can simply open the Bible and read the Words from God. God is still speaking today and it is right in your hand if you want to know. You want to know what the only authority in life is? Open the Bible and see it first hand from God. God is still speaking today and it is called the Bible.
