– Job 42:2

Thoughts on Today’s Verse:

Job said these words to God when God appeared to him. Reading this verse, I lost myself in deep thought: Job had never seen God. There was no Bible at that time and Job didn’t have meetings with others, then how did he feel God’s true existence, see His power and know His rule over everything? It is recorded in Job, “With him is wisdom and strength, he has counsel and understanding. Behold, he breaks down, and it cannot be built again: he shuts up a man, and there can be no opening. Behold, he withholds the waters, and they dry up: also he sends them out, and they overturn the earth” (Job 12:13-15). “He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who has hardened himself against him, and has prospered? Which removes the mountains, and they know not: which overturns them in his anger. Which shakes the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble. Which commands the sun, and it rises not; and seals up the stars. Which alone spreads out the heavens, and treads on the waves of the sea. Which makes Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. Which does great things past finding out; yes, and wonders without number” (Job 9:4-10). “God understands the way thereof, and he knows the place thereof. For he looks to the ends of the earth, and sees under the whole heaven; To make the weight for the winds; and he weighs the waters by measure. When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder” (Job 28:23-26).

These verses are Job’s knowledge of Jehovah God. Obviously, Job paid more attention to all things God created and the laws of all things He set and practically felt and knew His sovereignty. He had seen that God made water dry up, removed the mountains and shook the earth. Sunrise and sunset, moon and stars are administered in God’s hands. The wind and rain, thunder and lightning are controlled by God. He had realized that God’s deeds are everywhere, His wisdom is wonderful and unforeseen and His power cannot be transgressed by any person. Job had such knowledge through his experiencing with his heart all situations God arranged in his life. These practical knowledge became the source of Job’s true faith.
