Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Job 38:2
We are at the ending words of the book of Job. Job has been asking for a visitation from the Almighty, and now he gets one.
Many of us who preach and teach the Scriptures think we know God pretty well, but when it comes to the truth of the matter of knowing God we know very little. All we know about God is what we learn from His word.
We hear some people think and say things like, “If I were God…” The point is none of us are the Almighty.
We live now in an era where many are thinking that they know better than God what is good and right for themselves. So, you elevate yourself over the knowledge and will of God. You are on your way to a rude awakening one day.
Job did not like the way God had handled his life with loss, grief, sickness and disease. Job also did not know what went on in the courts of Heaven between Satan and God Most High. Neither do you or I.
When we face sorrow, whether it be by the loss of a family member, a friend, a job or career let us say and let us live like and believe this, “I do not know what God in His good counsel is doing; but I trust Him.”
In all his pain and loss Job never cursed God, sure he questioned what was going on; as would and do most of us. Always and I say again, always keep faith in the One who has all things in His hands.
Why? Because He loves us so much He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. That is when the Almighty answers.
