42 Then Job replied to the Lord:
2 “I know that you can do all things;
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.
4 “You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me.’
5 My ears had heard of you
but now my eyes have seen you.
We serve a great God and out of the ashes He wants to make you new.
What am I going to do now?
The changes and hardship that Job experienced go right to the core of his faith in God and when he emerged he said “The Lord has tested me with fire but when I come through it I shall be a pure gold.”
“The Lord was responsible for my wealth. And now he has decided to take it from me Praise the name of the Lord”
I will trust in God.
Job says I know you are all powerful; that you created the earth. And I did not. I know you are able to control anything you want to and I cannot. And I know that if you have a plan, it cannot fail.
Are you frustrated with God’s power, God’s presence and God’s plan?
It is only when we yield completely to God that He is able to turn our bitterness into Joy.
Power is an illusion!
Security is found only in God.
We need to release the wrong that was done in our lives. Trust God. Part of trusting God is releasing bitterness.
“I don’t know what’s next
but I will trust God for it.”
My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.
“What are you going to do now?”
