Declare If Thou Knowest It All…

“Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.” Job 38:18 Our Bible Reading this week brought us to the book of Job. I found myself reading ahead and almost cheering for God to come the rescue of Job from the discourse of his “friends”. I woke tonight and finished the book, I could feel my excitement as I read God’s response. I found myself pondering verse 38:18, “… declare if thou knowers it all.” I sat quietly in peaceful reflection. These “wise friends” of Job were really completely clueless and in the end the Lord had him praying for them for their misguided words. Listen to my voice daughter, I felt my Poppa urging. Your path may be different from mine. Who knows why God leads us down certain ones, but if you are following His voice that’s all that matters. He has something for you or a way to use you there. Don’t shy away from it because of the views of others. Another important thing to note, God can allow bad things to happen to strengthen us. These things do not mean we are bad. Twice in the book of Job he says to satan, “Hast thou considered my servant Job,” (Job 1:8 and Job 2:3) If you know you are in the right place with God in your heart, don’t listen to those “friends” in your ears saying rough times mean your out of His will. He may be allowing the ground to be tilled for your future. “So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.” Job 42:12 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” Job 1:8

“And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.” Job 2:3
