How would you like to be on the receiving end of this message?

"Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said: 'Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.'" Job 38:1-3
Four things jump out as I read this: 1. That the Lord spoke "out of" -- meaning He was in -- the storm. 2. That we can obscure God's counsel by entertaining arguments based on partial or misinformation -- "words without knowledge." 3. That we can be people who withstand God's questioning "like a man." 4. That He expects us to "answer" -- commune with -- Him.

I was reading Oswald Chambers today (skipped to the August 10th reading). He writes:

"Choosing to suffer means that there must be something wrong with you, but choosing God's will-even if it means you will suffer-is something very different...God places his saints where they will bring the most glory to Him, and we are totally incapable of judging where that may be."

Be blessed bro.
