S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.”
Job had been throwing accusations against everyone, as well as against God Almighty, for the unfair situation he found himself in. At that point God Himself weighed in. After a scathing rebuke by God, Job responded with these words. “I’m sorry, I didn’t know what I was talking about. My thoughts and understanding haven’t even reached a rudimentary level when it comes to comparison with the Almighty. It’s My Fault!”
I realize those words aren’t Job’s exact words. I was just trying to fill in some background as to what was happening in his statement. Here’s the deal. God is God, and He is God all by Himself. We can study Him, and we must. We can seek Him, and we must. We can promote Him, and we must. However, His ways are beyond finding out. We can talk against injustice all we want and point fingers and act the pious, righteous one all we want, but in the end the best we can do is monitor our own lives. The best we can do is live the gospel before we preach the gospel. And when it comes to inequities, the best we can do is say, “It’s MY Fault.” Because anything I say more than that will only arouse the Lord’s response. His response always reminds me that I’m just not that smart.
I’m so blessed to know and serve You. You are everything I need, and everything I’m not. Amen
