Scripture: Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding…When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?…Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?…Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;…Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?…Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart? Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,…Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.
My Dear Friends,
In our aforementioned text for this message, God appeared to Job at Job’s request. Job’s intent was to inquire of Him because of the agonizing, disastrous events which had nearly devastated him completely.
Instead of giving the answers Job sought, our omnipotent, omniscient, ever-present God chose to ask Job eighty three (83) questions, none of which Job or any of us would ever be equipped to answer. To answer any of the questions would really be miraculous.
A few days ago, this writer was distressed at receiving a request for personal information from an agency of which I had no idea of being able to attain. I prayerfully asked God to please place what I needed in my mailbox. He told me to look outside for it, now,… Miracle!!!
My friends, I am sure that all of you can testify to God’s performance of at least one miracle in your life. For example: look into your mirrors at the reflection posted there and witness God’s miraculous life given to you. Another testimony: God’s grass is not watching you, but you can watch His grass anytime you desire. Miracle!!! (Smile).
God gave His greatest miraculous gift to us by sending His only Son, Jesus Christ, to offer us eternal life in Him to those of us who accept it.
Love you much,
P.S. My friends, let us focus on praying for our families, the oppressed, needy, and country, as well. Presently, things seem to be increasingly bleak because God is trying to regain our attention by decreasing his miraculous deeds toward us. Pray!
