Where Were You?????

Job 38

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!

  2. Yes we all have heard of Job how he was upright a Just/righteous man. God had flavored Job and was very pleased with him. Every time I read Job I understand that God will not put more on you that you can’t bear, he knew Job will stand strong and not faint. I love how God operates within the Whirlwind; in a Whirlwind you don’t know the beginning of it? Nor the ending? (God is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the Ending) as the 38 chapter of Job continues God describe how he brings forth everything, his orders and placement of this whole world and everything that in it. I Glorified and praise his Holy Name for there’s no one Greater than him.

    Each one of us as born again believers can take the testimony of Job and be encouraged as we walk with God and know that our God is too big and he'll never fail us and he will be with us until the end of our life and throughout eternity. Things may be falling apart all around us God will keep you as you Trust him.
