God’s Questions and Answers

Divider

I will question you, and you shall answer me.

Job 38:3


God has a history of asking questions of people. Adam was asked, “Where are you?” Cain was asked, “Where is your brother, Abel?” Moses was asked, “Is the Lord’s arm too short?” Elijah was asked, “What are you doing here?” Peter was asked, “Why did you doubt? The disciples were asked, “Who do you say I am?”

What question is God asking us? When we are going through tough times as Job did, we can forget that God has the questions and answers we need to hear.

God asks, “Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge?” (Job 38:2). Answer: No one, not even the devil. God has a plan even in the most chaotic events in our lives. He has a plan for us to prosper, to give us hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11).

God asks, “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?” (Job 38:4) Answer: Not around. God never takes a vacation. He’s everywhere all the time. We may be tempted to believe that God has left us when desolation crowds in on our lives. Yet He said He will never leave or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5).

God asks, “Would you discredit my justice?”(Job 40:8). Answer: No. God isn’t blind to injustice. We cry out for God’s hand to intervene in response to wickedness, yet see nothing changing. However, God promises that He will repay the wrongdoers (Colossians 3:25).

When we are suffering through a trial, we can draw strength from our faith in God, His perfect plan for our lives, His comforting presence to keep us going, and His enduring justice to repay those who have done wrong.

Prayer

Dear Lord, help me to trust in Your promises to keep me in the time of trouble. I know You are a faithful God to do what You’ve said in Your word. Amen.

In His Service,
