Read Job 38:1-11

The Lord Answers Job
38 Then out of the storm the Lord spoke to Job.

2 Who are you to question my wisdom
    with your ignorant, empty words?
3 Now stand up straight
    and answer the questions I ask you.
4 Were you there when I made the world?
    If you know so much, tell me about it.
5 Who decided how large it would be?
    Who stretched the measuring line over it?
    Do you know all the answers?
6 What holds up the pillars that support the earth?
    Who laid the cornerstone of the world?
7 In the dawn of that day the stars sang together,
    and the heavenly beings[a] shouted for joy.

8 Who closed the gates to hold back the sea[b]
    when it burst from the womb of the earth?
9 It was I who covered the sea with clouds
    and wrapped it in darkness.
10 I marked a boundary for the sea
    and kept it behind bolted gates.
11 I told it, “So far and no farther!
    Here your powerful waves must stop.”

Think

We know, through the witness of the cross that God loves each and every one of us.  This passage above; invites us to remember God's great power.  Job is invited to keep his faith, despite his difficult circumstances.

Pray

Lord remind me of your power and majesty so I would be freed to worship you in every circumstance.
