Job 37:5 Beyond Understanding

God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. Job 37:5 

Curiosity into things is something that man has always had. He wants to understand how things work or why they work the way that they do. For many people they are fascinated by how things work and they begin to question it.

It is out of desire to understand the mysteries of life that many of the discoveries have been made. Some are very simple, such as how something might taste, while other things are extremely complex, such as the breakdown of molecules and how they work in a body.

While millions of things have been discovered, there are also many things that remain a mystery. Some of the things that have been discovered, have also been changed over the years with greater discovery of that item.

Elihu points out that God does things that is beyond understanding. What God was doing in Job’s life was even beyond his understanding. God was doing a great thing, though no one could see it, or understand what He was doing at the time it was occurring.

It is easy to see how great God is when one thinks about the complexities of this life and earth. How does God sustain everything on this earth, down to the smallest particles of life and matter? No one can fully understand this.

Then it gets even more complex with how God works in the life of a person. God allows things in his life to mold and shape the person into one like Jesus. God uses both good and bad things to change a person into the person he is meant to be. This is beyond the understanding of people, yet it is marvelous what God is doing.

As you put your trust in God, trust what He is doing and allowing in your life. Do not fight God, but turn to Him and hold on to Him. Know that what He is doing and allowing is what is best for your life.

The allowance of struggle and destruction in the life of Job ends with blessings beyond measure. God may use things that do not make sense to you in order to make you like Jesus. As He does this, remember that His ways of doing things is beyond anything you can think or imagine, yet it is the best way.

If He can build and sustain this universe, He can build and sustain you.

I pray today that you will see God’s hand in your life; that you will trust God’s work in your life; that you God will reveal His work in your life; and that you will not fear God’s work in your life.
