JOB SERIES: CHAPTERS 38-41 – AND GOD SAID

November 17, 2017

Everyone has spoken: Job, Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar, and Elihu. Everyone has voiced their theories and opinions on God and Job’s calamities. During these conversations, God remained silent, and though Job beseeches Him to speak and tell him and his friends the reason he was attacked God said nothing. However, the moment has arrived, and God responded to Job, but he did not answer Job’s primary question.

Chapter 38 reveals that God answered Job out of a whirlwind and declared His omnipotence, His majesty, His wisdom, and His creative work. He questioned Job on his knowledge of astronomy, geography, meteorology, oceanography, the animal kingdom, and his impact on the earth. He showed Job in comparison to Him he was insignificant, inefficient, unqualified, powerless, and finite. Additionally, in the middle of His discourse, God asked Job for answers for the questions he posed to him and Job realizing his foolishness confessed his vileness and said nothing else. Finally, God closes this dialogue by describing two remarkable creations: the behemoth and the leviathan and challenges Job’s ability to control these creatures, which he could not do.

I concluded this blog with these reflections:

  1. God responds to humans in His time.
  2. God does not have to answer to anyone concerning what He does.
  3. God is not obligated to answer your questions or concerns.
  4. God is benevolent, and He is in control of this world.
  5. You may never know why you suffered.
  6. Through suffering, God leads man into a deeper understanding of His greatness.
  7. But for the mercies of God, we are not consumed.
  8. Humanity must humble themselves before divinity.
  9. There is only one supreme being, and He is not a man.
