“Spiritual” Sunday

20120715-083901.jpg

“ 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.

  1. my favorite bible verse is 1 corinthians 13.
    13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

    4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

    13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

  2. Truly enjoyed your post about Job and all the tests of faithfulness God had put him through. But God later rewarded him with ”gifts beyond his imagination” for his faith. And we too will and are already being rewarded. E.g. Our children. Our freedom to worship God in our own way. This beautiful Earth as our home and on and on. And God has only one request of us. To be faithful to Him and the rewards will come
