Job 38:4–“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.”

Many Bibles label this section “God Answers Job” and yet it would be more accurate to say that “God Questions Job.” Job has been asking God why He’s allowed these things to happen. God answers by asking Job questions that Job cannot possibly know the answers to. Why? Sometimes we need reminded that we do not know everything and we do not have all the answers. God is over all things, He is in control of all things, and He knows all things that we don’t.

Father, I wasn’t there when You laid the foundation of the world, You were. Help me to listen to what You ask Job and know that You love me and are over everything. I will relax and trust in You.
