After more than 30 chapters of Job and his friends going back & forth about why Job is suffering, God finally shows up on the scene. But, he doesn’t show up in the way Job had hoped. At this point, Job felt entitled to question God and was quite proud. God made made Job check his pride at the door as he put his power and sovereignty on display for Job to see. Who controls creation and nature? Who is wise enough to know how all things work & hold together? Certainly not Job!
For us, this is a reminder of what our position is before God. We are his creation and he is the Almighty and Sovereign. He can do as he pleases for his own glory and we have no right to question him. So, we’d best check our pride and come to him in humility.
Does God’s sovereignty humble you?
