Job 9:20 If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: If I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
There is no way for me to fix myself. If I try to say that I am right and good then my mouth will prove otherwise. If I were to say that I am perfect it will easily be found out that I am the opposite of perfect, I am perverse.
I can’t. I need God. I can’t do right enough to go to heaven. I can’t do right enough for God to be pleased. I need Him and what only He can do. I need God.
I love this verse because I so often begin to think of myself as better than I should. I want to humble myself and see my need of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
