“ Where were you when I laid the earths foundation? Tell me if you understand.” Powerful words God spoke to Job. Can you imagine for a minute what it must have felt like for Job to have God speaking directly to him…gives me goose bumps!
Job, thru his suffering questioned God on why he was allowed to suffer when he and even his friends thought that he was righteous in God’s eyes. God, I think with a little sarcasm, with powerful words though, showed his omnipresence (all present): speaking directly to Job; His omniscience (all knowing), and omnipotence (all powerful) certainly was shown when he asked Job if he was there when he created the earth.
I love this verse because it helps me put things in perspective when I’m not sure why God is allowing certain things to happen in my life, or others lives. WHO AM I to question Him?
Job is a very good book to read…regardless of your faith. It has a great message in it.
