Minute Meditations of Hope and Encouragement #133

However far our telescopes can peer into the cosmos, they have not come anywhere near revealing to us what we have been shown in the book of Job. It does not stand alone. It is part of a much bigger picture revealed in the word of God. As part of a grand spiritual and theological mosaic it is a powerful message of faithfulness amid adversity. He said, “I came naked from my mother’s womb, and I will be naked when I leave. The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord!” Job 1.21 ” though he slays me, yet I will trust in him” 3:15 What believer in Jesus, seeking to do right like Job, hasn’t at times faced inexplicable wrong? If we could only realize like Job to ” remember that my life is but a breath… as the cloud fades and vanishes” 7:7-9 And then, as we began, God speaks to Job out of the storm (chapter 37) v:14 “hear this, O Job; stop and consider the wondrous works of God…the wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge.” Jesus’ death burial and resurrection is the most wondrous work of all. In this is our own hope. Jesus had the power over His death; therefore, He has the power over mine. I believe in the power of His resurrection.
