Today’s devotion is based on God’s question to Job as recorded for us in Job 38:1,2: “Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm. He said: “Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge?”
God made it very clear to Job that Job was out of his depth when challenging God and his wisdom. Job was beginning to lose sight of who his Savior-God is.
Do you perceive him as distant, uncaring—perhaps even a bit irrelevant to the frantic urgencies of your life? Stop. Listen. Listen to the Word of the Lord. Listen to the voice of your Savior-God as he calls you to repentance. Listen as he goes on to embrace you, all over again, in the forgiveness purchased by his Son on Calvary’s cross. That is the God who loves you. That is the God who guides everything—everything—for your good.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen; please forgive my words without knowledge. Forgive me for the sake of your Son. Refresh me in the greatness of who you truly are so that I can live my life in peace, knowing you are in control. Amen.
