Prayer Focus: Asia

Bible Reading: Job 33-36

Scripture

How great is God—beyond our understanding!  (Job 36:26)

Observation

After all this back and forth and everyone throwing in their 2 cents, 4 cents, and in Elihu’s case it seems like a couple bucks (what with him thinking he has perfect knowledge)…this is what really matters.  God is beyond our understanding.

Application

Too often I try to answer every last question and resolve every last detail, but in reality this is not necessary and in a very real sense can drive a person mad.  There are things about God, many things, we will never understand this side of the veil and we just have to come to terms with that.  God has revealed enough to us, in fact, a lot more than enough in His Word and in Creation.

Prayer

Lord, forgive me when I kick and scream like a child demanding you answer my every last question.  Teach me to trust in you with all my heart.

How great is God—beyond our understanding!
