I was led to read the last few chapters of Job this morning. I know, right? Job 38, 39, 40 & 41, where God speaks and man shuts up. It reminded me of how God’s wisdom is so unexplainably great and ours is so puny that it doesn’t even show on the same scale.
We do this, don’t we? Question God like He has no idea what He’s doing in the earth. Silly us! How can we be so full of ourselves to think we know the mind of God, his plans and purposes. Instead we should be laying on our faces asking for Him to show us mercy and grace in our time of need.
Then Job answered the Lord, and said, “I know that You can do all things. Nothing can put a stop to Your plans. ‘Who is this that hides words of wisdom without much learning?’ I have said things that I did not understand, things too great for me, which I did not know. ‘Hear now, and I will speak. I will ask you, and you answer Me.’ I had heard of You only by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You. So I hate the things that I have said. And I put dust and ashes on myself to show how sorry I am.” Job 42:1-6
Perhaps this is the stance we should take today as we hold out judgement of such a great God who alone created everything and still knows our name, every hair on our head and loves us enough to give His son to die and redeem us back to Him so that we can commune with Him. Perhaps we should stop focusing on ourselves and just place our trust in the God who holds the worlds in place with His word.
Thank You Father God that You indeed love us and have such great plans for us. We give You all the praise, glory and honor for You alone are worthy. We worship You and place our total trust in You. We humbly thank You that we belong to You and trust Your plans. It’s in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
