Read Job chapter 42


Job 42:3–You asked, “Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?” Surely I spoke if things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.


Job hears all that God has to say. He hears all the amazing things that God is in control of and all the ways that he is not. Job has nothing else to say other than this. God has reminded Job that Job doesn’t not understand as God understands. Go sees the total picture and that is why we can trust Him and why He allows certain things that we don’t understand because He does understand why. When we are confronted with the vastness of all that God knows, we will see how little we really know and understand. Will we admit our own limits and praise God for being limitless?


Father, I like to think I know and understand all that You are doing or how things should be done, but I don’t know or understand anything like You do. You see the entire picture and I will humble myself and accept whatever You have planned for me.
