When God speaks man listens!

#ManUpAndListen

God grants Job his request by talking to Him about who He is; however, He does not answer the “why” of Job’s suffering. He continues to question Him.

““Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions?

Surely you know! [A bit of irony here-it is as if God  is telling Job that he should know. However, if he does why does he question His decisions and actions?] Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone— while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy? “Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness, when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’?” ‭‭Job‬ ‭38:2-11‬ ‭NIV

Job remains speechless. Sometimes our silence for a period of time is essential to receiving the solution that God has for our challenges. Not silence in a sense that one does not confide in someone who can help us talk it through. But the silence of he negativity that runs through our minds when things go wrong. The silence of the name blame game when we are depressed or emotionally contorted because of an event or events that have happened in out lives. The silence of the nagging spirit,replaced by the reaching out to God for answers while maintaining a “holy fear” of Him. He was not created by man, but He created man. Trust Him to solve your problems. If you need to talk to someone try us. We are here to serve you, in distress or in joy!
