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:
2 “I know that you can do
no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
3 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.
