So for Word Filled Wednesday, here is a portion of God questioning Job starting in chapter 38.
God asked Job: “Where were you when I laid the earths’ foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! … Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb…when I said, “this far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt.”
Have you ever given orders to the morning…have the gates of death been shown to you? Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth? Tell me, if you know all this?
Do you know when the mountain goats give birth? Do you watch when the doe bear her fawn? Do you count the months till they bear? Do you know the time they give birth? They crouch down and bring forth their young; their labor pains are ended. Their young thrive and grow strong in the wilds; they leave and do not return…
Do you give the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane? Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting? He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword… At the blast of the trumpet he snorts, “aha!” He catches the scent of battle from afar, the shout of commanders and the battle cry.
Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom and spread his wings toward the south? Does the eagle soar at your command and build his nest on high?”
Job replied to the Lord in Job 42:2: “I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.”
The purpose of Word Filled Wednesday, according to 160 Acre Woods, – is to share God’s word (no famous quotes or other literature — only the beautiful word of our Father) through photo’s & a Bible verse! So though I am tempted to write more and be “devotional in nature” I will let the photo and God’s word stand alone to work in your heart. If you’ve never read Job 38-42 it’s a must read!
Walk with the King!
