Whaaaaat???? R U Serious?????
Yes I love the 38th chapter of Job!
Can we explore a few of the highlights.
We know the story of Job, he was set up as the unlikely challenge between God and the devil.
Next thing you know the hedge was allowed to be breached and a great wind took his children,
animal and property in a moment in time. As Job goes through the process of grieving over his loses and reevaluating his situation, he gets the third degree from the church folks, the worst advice possible from his wife and he falls sick.
The chapter starts by God answering Job out of the whirlwind..... That in itself is amazing!'
Next thing you know God is asking Job "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?" (4)
Who laid the cornerstone of the (earth) when all the morning stars sang together?
In recent years Nasa has recorded sounds of the stars.
Who shut up the sea with doors.....(8)..and here shall thy proud waves be stayed. (11)
Hast thou commanded the mornings (12)
Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth? (16)
Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death? (17)
Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof, (19)
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, (22)
Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew? (28)
Out of whose womb came the ice?.....(29)
Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven?...(33)
..... or who can stay the bottles of heaven (37)
Any one of these concepts I can meditate on forever. Several scientific truths have been discovered because man became curious at these scriptures.
I am always awed by these questions that God put forth to Job. We serve an amazing, creative, perfect God!
