God understands the way thereof, and he knows the place thereof. For he looks to the ends of the earth, and sees under the whole heaven; To make the weight for the winds; and he weighs the waters by measure.When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:
– Job 28:23-26
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
These verses tell us that Job was knowledgeable about God. Although he did not see God, through practical observation, he experienced and knew God’s actions from various phenomena in his daily life, for example: The sun, the moon and the stars all travel precisely along their own track; the rotation of seasons and the change of weather are predestined; every kind of living creature thrive and multiply within one constant rule—all this is ruled over by God not by man. Job had truly appreciated that God’s deeds are everywhere, and that God’s wisdom is wondrous and unfathomable. Thus, he was certain of God’s true existence and the fact that God is the source of man’s life, and the fact that it is God who leads all things, provides for all things and command all things. In addition, Job applied his knowledge of God’s sovereignty and authority to his real life. He believed that all he possessed had been bestowed upon him by God, and had not come off the back of his own labor. Just as God says, “Job had never seen God, the implication of which is that although he had heard of God, he did not know where God was, or what God was like, or what God was doing, which are subjective factors; objectively speaking, though he followed God, God had never appeared to him or spoken to him. Is this not a fact? Although God had not spoken to Job or given him any commands, Job had seen God’s existence, and beheld His sovereignty among all things and in legends in which Job had heard of God by the hearing of the ear, after which he began the life of fearing God and shunning evil. Such were the origins and process by which Job followed God.” We should emulate Job—to realize God’s wonderful sovereignty in all the things He created with our heart, obey all the environments arranged by Him in our daily life, and feel God’s true existence in our real experiences.
