God Speaks
Job 38-39




God Speaks, Job 38-39. God speaks, and all are put to silence! He presents His case to Job, and there is no answer that Job can give to Him!

1Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said:
2 “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?

3 Dress for action like a man;
I will question you, and you make it known to me.

4 “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you have understanding.
5 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
6 On what were its bases sunk,
or who laid its cornerstone,
7 when the morning stars sang together
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Job 38:1-7, ESV

26 “Is it by your understanding that the hawk soars
and spreads his wings toward the south?
27 Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up
and makes his nest on high?
28 On the rock he dwells and makes his home,
on the rocky crag and stronghold.
29 From there he spies out the prey;
his eyes behold it from far away.
30 His young ones suck up blood,
and where the slain are, there is he.”
Job 39:26-30, ESV




God Speaks
Job 38-39



God speaks, and all are put to silence! He presents His case to Job, and there is no answer that Job can give to Him! He questions Job again and again, and yet there is no possible response from Job.



4 “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you have understanding.
5 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
6 On what were its bases sunk,
or who laid its cornerstone,
7 when the morning stars sang together
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?



We know so much, do we not? We can forecast the weather and we have filled volumes with our great understanding. And yet, who was there when God laid the foundation of the earth? We study to no end just trying to understand how our world exists and lives, trying to give our own assessment as to how this world came into being. Yet, will we ever come to the knowledge of the truth apart from God?



Is God bound by our predictions? Our weather forecasters boldly proclaim the weather that they give or bring to us. Yet, do they give or bring anything? They base everything they predict upon historical averages of what has happened in the past when weather patterns have been similar. And yet, is God bound by these predictions?



Weather men can forecast storms, lightning, thunder, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc. Yet, can they control every single bolt of lightening and tell it exactly where to go as God can?



We have learned much of the creatures upon our earth. But, does the hawk soar because we have made it to do so? Does the eagle mount up its wings and fly, or build its nest high upon the crags of the rock because we have commanded it to do so? No!



We, the creature, cannot speak or impose anything upon our Creator. As God addresses Job and then his three friends, pray that by faith you, too, will understand this truth:



When God speaks we are all put to silence!



Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
