"Having a conversation with someone who is humble is very different than speaking with someone who is convinced of their own personal greatness. In this case, it is difficult to connect on a personal level or even get a word in. Speaking to God is a very different experience, especially when we confess our faults. God already knows how we have failed Him, and He can do great work when we admit it to Him and ourselves.
As we pray and listen to God, He will teach us how to act and react. Nothing is more important. What we see with Elihu, however, is a young man that seems quite arrogant. Elihu claims that he is so enlightened that all the friends need to listen to him. He speaks of himself and his understanding of God, which is exactly what Job didn’t need. If
someone is in trouble, we would do well to listen and not quickly announce judgment on their situation. Sometimes it is best to let the Holy Spirit speak to the issues.
