A human misunderstanding of divine purposes

“I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.”

 

This is Job’s response to God declaring his power and authority in Job 41. He submits to God’s sovereignty and penitently despising himself for his earlier words. Job had made assumptions about his situation while lacking information and understanding of God’s ways and purposes.

 

Often, we can look at a situation we are in and try and make sense of it using our imperfect, human, understanding of God’s will. Job’s mistake is a lesson to us not to draw our own conclusions about God’s purposes but rather submit to Him wholeheartedly with utmost faith.
