Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place? (Job 38:12)
Today’s big question: who sustains us every day?
As we consider further the higher ways of God, we should take some time to consider what God told Job about His awesome providence. God guides Job in considering His amazing creative and sustaining power. In doing so, He provided us with a list that is mind-blowing.
Have you ever thought about how big God really is? So often we think of God in respect of His power in creation, but as He describes His amazing power to Job we see His unlimited power displayed in His sustaining providence—even as He sustains a sin-cursed world. The questions God posed to Job point to the power and patience of our awesome Creator.
Take some time to ponder a few of the questions from chapters 38 and 39 of Job.
Put yourself in Job’s shoes. He heard all of these following the most tragic of circumstances. God is in charge. He knows my beginning and my end. He created and sustains all things.
Whether I admit it or not, and whether I like it or not, I am in His hands. He is God and I am not. His ways are higher than mine.
Today’s big idea: the Creator sustains all things, and I am in His sovereign hands.
What to pray: give your life to God.
