The Creator God is speaking to a frustrated man named Job in this passage. Job was a good man, but he was experiencing some agonizing times and dared to question the sovereignty of the Lord. God is reminding Job of just Who is in charge. Sometimes in our finite human minds we may do the same thing, but when we step back from things, we should realize the God of the Universe is so much bigger than our understanding or even our thinking.
Man wants to “know.” Scientists try to explain away creation but doing so creates more questions than answers. Many skeptics gravitate to the Big Bang Theory of creation; I wonder how they would respond if they were confronted by God as Job was?
It boggles one’s mind to think about the complexity and intricacies of life. But to think that just happened? Scriptures speak of the mysteries of God which require us to have faith in that which we cannot always see or understand. That is what faith is. For me, I believe by faith God sent His only Son to earth with a purpose to teach and disciple people in the ways of the Lord, but to more importantly become an atoning sacrifice on my behalf through His own innocent shed blood. That is the only way I could be saved from the destiny of an eternal separation from the Creator God, because I can never be perfect no matter how hard I try or how intelligent I may be. It is by faith I believe that; it is by faith I accept this free gift of salvation, as I genuinely acknowledge my shortcomings before the Lord. I don’t have to understand; I just have to believe.
What about you? Are you still trying to make heads or tails of life? Here’s a tip … you’ll never figure it out. It is far too wonderful and immense for you to grasp or comprehend. Yet, in spite of the vastness of the Lord’s reach and power, He desires to have a personal relationship with YOU. And that relationship is not based on deed or action, but on a simple and sincere expression of, “Lord, I believe in Who You are” and invite Him into your life. Remember, this is the Creator of the Universe that is waiting for your invitation!
