Foundation Laid

Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris

Job 38:1-18 KJV
(1) Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
(2) Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
(3) Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
(4) Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
(5) Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
(6) Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
(7) When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
(8) Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
(9) When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
(10) And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
(11) And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
(12) Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
(13) That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
(14) It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.
(15) And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.
(16) Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
(17) Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
(18) Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.

If I want to know how little my brain and understanding of all of who God is all I have to do is go to the book of Job for the answer. It a good reminder of who we are in Christ Jesus, as Godís dear children, who only have a glimpse of understanding of all the things God knows. Science will claim to know many things about the earth and our planet. Research declares certain key principals that can be applied to all nature, yet it cannot define the beginning or the ending point of Godís creation. It can only observe the processes in which things grow and develop.

Man was around when God created the heavens and the earth. Yet if we live in a time of repetitive motion one can only imagine that motion is still in existence. If we are blinded by our own knowledge of the things God put in motion. From the length of time it took God to create the earth being six days. Man wants to know how this could be and in truth, our minds can only comprehend that there are children that age quickly and die young before they reach the age of twenty. There bodies wax old without medicine to slow the aging process. Though science can control the aging process in the mutation of life in these children, they still cannot control their own aging process. As earth formed in the first day, one can only grasp that water was divided the day before. Yet this process of how it was formed is in slow motion today. What caused it to move and develop so fast only God knows? Why did God slow it down, only God knows? One can only assume with creation of light and dark that 24 hours in day was not hour more or less. It became the measurement for a day from the beginning of God saying there was light.

The next time you think you know it all, consider reading Job. I do not doubt some understand more then I, but God has the superior mind. He can rattle off facts one after the other and our computer minds mind only work half the time. God created us to be intelligent beings, but our mind can only contain so much.

Dear Heavenly Father always put us in our place that your knowledge is greater then ours. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
