Sovereignty

Re:Verse passage – Job 40:6-9, 15-19; 41:1-7, 10-11; 42:1-6 (day four)

In 2000, Richard A. Swenson, MD wrote a book, More Than Meets the EyeEditHe began by asking the question, “how would our lives be changed if we had 10 minutes in heaven with God?”  He concluded that we would be profoundly and eternally changed.  We cannot even fathom or understand all the ways of God.  Swenson proceeded to identify facts of science that demonstrate the amazing power of our Almighty God.  We can only describe the facts shared as mind-boggling!  Can you imagine how Job felt during his conversation with God?

Every question asked of Job was beyond his comprehension.  At every element of interrogation, Job was profoundly impacted and yes, humbled.  How could he have ever questioned God and His choices and decisions?  Job clearly recognized God’s vast glory and his own abject poverty.  How about us?  Do we, like Adam and Eve in the garden, sometimes act as if we know better than God?  Do we think that if God knew all the circumstances like we do, that He would change His mind or do things differently?  Charles Spurgeon said, “There is no attribute more comforting to His children than God’s sovereignty.
