Re:Verse passage – Job 38:1-7; 40:6-9 (day 6)
Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said,
I’m with Scott here, Job reminds us of our deepest need and God’s eagerness to meet it-his nearness. I think it is astounding that we have a God that draws near to us, especially after reading about his management of the universe in chapters 38-39. (God doesn’t have too much on his plate to draw near to us.)
One of the best ways the book of Job illustrates the nearness of God is not in God’s response to Job, but that he responded at all. Simply, God heard Job’s cries, his complaints, and accusations. He was not far off and aloof, but near; he heard Job and spoke to him in his nearness.
So, if you ever wander if God hears you; he does…AND he answers us when we call.
