Job 36:26–“Behold, God is exalted, and we do not know Him; the number of His years is unsearchable.”

As Elihu continues to speak, he makes this statement. All of these statements are true: God is exalted above everything, we do not and cannot know Him because of our sins, and the span of time that God covers is beyond our comprehension. However, Even though we cannot know God, He wants us to know Him. He wants us to be able to come to Him and share with Him. Because we could never know God on our own due to our sin and wrongs in our life, God made a way through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Because of Jesus Christ, we can come to God and we can know Him and have a relationship with Him. Have you accepted the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for your life, the free gift that God provided so that we could we could know Him?

Lord, You are my provider. When I could not come to You because of my sins, You made a way to come to me. You provided a worthy and perfect sacrifice to cover me and my sins so that I may come into Your presence. I praise You and thank You!
