POWERING YOUR DAY: “God Is Still In Charge”
“Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind: “Why are you using your ignorance to deny my providence? Now get ready to fight, for I am going to demand some answers from you, and you must reply.” Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much”
Job was in serious moments of doubt. He had so many questions. Then his young friend Elihu had the audacity to say God is not gonna talk to Job. Well, God decided to answer the Job’s questions – only God answered Job’s questions with more questions. Ouch! In Job 38 alone, God asks Job 35 rhetorical questions. In the whole Book of Job, God asks Job an incredible 184 questions! God’s questions aren’t intended to teach; they are intended to stun. They aren’t intended to enlighten; they are intended to awaken. They aren’t intended to stir the mind; they are intended to bend the knees….
When you are in doubt, look no further than the work of God’s hand. His work reveals His perfections, virtues, graces and excellences. He is in charge! He is a master planner and architect par excellence. The earth is just the perfect distance from the sun, so we keep warm without roasting. It’s tilted at a perfect 23 degrees so we have different seasons. Earth is just the right thickness, so there is enough oxygen for everything. Its self evident that God is in charge and knows how to order our lives.
What’s my point? In the seeming chaos of life, there is an order in the disorder. God the Master Planner and Extraordinary Strategist is working out all the small detail for your good.
Sit back and relax God is still in charge!
