Job 37:5 Always Doing Great Things

God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend. Job 37:5

It is sometimes amazing for a person to watch some expert do some great task. The average person cannot comprehend how someone is able to accomplish certain things. Some experts, in certain fields, are able to do things that most people cannot even understand what is being done but can understand that it is amazing talent.

Over time many great things have been done or invented by great minds. All most people can do is accept the things, rather than understand them.

Elihu tells Job that God thunders in a marvelous way with His voice as He does things that no one can comprehend.

Going through life it is easy for the average person just to live from day to day without seeing the amazing things in this life. Most things are taken for granted because they have always been there and there is nothing different. On the surface everything appears to be simple, but most people do not see the complexity of what goes on under the surface to make those simple things occur.

Each day people sit down to eat a meal, but not understanding what God had done behind the scenes to make that meal possible. God provides the nutritious earth, the sunlight, the warmth, the cold, the water and much more just to allow a plant to grow. Then there is also the complexity of the humans that grew it, prepared it and delivered the food, all under the working of God’s mighty power.

God is doing more than any person can every begin to comprehend. In spite of problems and challenges in life, believers need to stand back in awe and take notice how great God is.

Every day you are surrounded by many great things that God has done and is doing in your life. Most often these things are things that God is doing behind the scenes to make your life here on this earth possible.

Do not allow yourself to become overwhelmed with the challenges each day presents but be overwhelmed with what God is doing and has already done. This world and its problems are only temporary, and God is working out great things to bring you into eternity.

Give God the praise and worship due Him for all of His marvelous works that you cannot begin to comprehend.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that God will open your eyes to what He is doing in your life; that you will see what God is doing around you in this world; and that you will give God praise for His mighty work in your life.

Job 37:5 Beyond Understanding

Greece islands

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.
