Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage.
There is so very much in the book of Job, and today we are not going to get into the layers and purposes of this important story. But, we are going to listen as God speaks to Job in response to Job’s “fault-finding” (Job 40:2).
- In His power God responds from a whirlwind. What an awesome vision. As you read through chapter 38 envision each picture that God gives us that reveal who he is. Write down some of His statements that bring new understanding to God as creator.
- As we here on Earth come to greater and greater understanding of the physical world, many put themselves in the place of God. But what evidence does He give of His great power & wisdom?
- God’s plan of and for creation is so much greater than we can see with our eyes or understand with our limited intellect. Read Job 42:1-6. What is Job’s response when he realizes his own place in God’s creation?
- Do you question why, how, when, what-if, if-only?He has a perfect plan and he knows. WE DO NOT KNOW the purposes, layers, wisdom, knowledge of God. Lay your questions at the feet of God, write them down, confess & trust God!
Praying that you would live knowing that God can do all things and that His purposes will prevail! Praying for you!
