Job replied to the Lord: “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” ...Job 42:1-2
Since the Garden of Eden, we’ve yearned to be smarter than God. In his desperation Job came to that point. Job did not want to be greater than God. Job wanted God to be his ultimate resource with the assurance that he was a child of God.
How reassuring it is to discover that our salvation does not lie in our own cleverness and strength! God’s power is a loving power in which we, like Job, become free to experience a peace and comfort that only God can give.
When we acknowledge God’s power, we can experience peace.
