“Then Job replied to the Lord: “I know that You can do anything, and no one can stop You.. . I had only heard about Your before, but now I have seen You with my own eyes….””
If you have never read chapters 38-42 in the book of Job, then take a few minutes from your day to read it. After reading it, you will be full of praise for God. Chapters 38-42 is basically a dialogue between God and Job, where God presents a case for His greatness to Job, who had previously been doubting God’s presence through the storms in his life. Now Job did go through terrible times, loosing everything, including his family, but God wanted Job to know that He was with him all the time, even in the hardships.
God then proceeds to give a wonderful demonstration of His greatness, showing Job how He is in control of everything; from the lighting that strikes in the air, to the beasts that roam on the earth. The arguments God presents to Job, would leave any man speechless in their defence. God presents un-deniable evidence to Job, that He is a God who is far above everything that we can imagine yet closer than even our breath.
This weekend, as you read and meditate on this passage in Job, know that whatever you are going through, God is bigger. Job saw God in His words, in the beauty of this world, and the power and greatness of who He is. God silenced Job’s doubts and worries and gave Him hope and assurance that He was Job’s God. May today we proclaim, over our problems and worries, that God ‘I know that You can do anything, and no one can stop You!’ May we know that God is great, and He is our God!
