The Spirit In You Is Greater Than The Years On You!

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Job 32:8

But it is the Spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding.


A young man by the name of Elihu had been listening to the discussion between Job and his three friends. Finally, they all seemed to be finished when the young man spoke up. He honored them if you will look at the verses surrounding this text, yet he had become weary listening to the constant complaints against Job by his friends and then of Job’s complaints against God. Here is what he said in a nutshell, “The Spirit In You Is Greater Than The Years On You.”


I’m not sure I agree with everything this young man said; however, I agree with this passage. Sometimes, older people are so filled with “Yeah Buts” that they never get to the point. Or they can continue to talk until they talk away any blessing God had originally blessed them with. The young man said, “I waited to speak because I knew you were older, but finally I must speak. I believe it is the Spirit of God in a person’s life that enables them to be wise.” That is a very wise statement. What a person lacks in experience, if he or she allows the Spirit of God to lead and guide them, no matter how young or old, then they will be able to sit with the wise. Because “The Spirit In You Is Greater Than The Years On You!”


Dear Jesus,

This AM, I’m blessed to call you my everything. I am now increased with years, yet I need you to even wake up in the AM. I need Your Spirit in me again today. Amen
