Job 40
Job 41
Job 42
Romans 15

I hope you found reading the Lord’s questions to Job in Chapters 38-41 as interesting as I do – they rightly describe the power and wisdom of the Lord.  In today reading of Job’s response I am fully reminded that no matter how much we read, how much we study, even how much we pray we may never find a full answer to our questions and expectations.  And that is where, just like Job, we need to rely on faith:

Job 42:  Then Job replied to the Lord:

“I know that you can do all things;
    no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’
    Surely I spoke of things I did not understand,
    things too wonderful for me to know

    Job 40:8 impacted me. God asks Job, “Would you declare me guilty to justify yourself?” The implication to me is that if I am justifying my actions, contrary to God’s will, whatI’m saying is that I’m righteous and God is guilty. Wow.
