In chapter 37, Elihu concludes his allegations against Job. Elihu contended that Job was receiving God’s wrath for sin in Job’s life. (Job 37:1-24)

 

In chapter 38, God speaks. He asked Job how someone, like Job, without complete knowledge could make a charge or claim against God. God asked Job to explain how Gods’ creation worked: how it was held together. God asked Job is he knew how God provided for the care of all creation. Job could not answer. Job did not know the answer. Then how could Job accuse God of being complicit in Job’s current situation? (Job 38:1-41)

Too often people jump to conclusions without having full understanding of all the facts. An overlooked fact can change the result of why something happened. God asked Job what do you know? God did not ask Job for his opinion God asked Job what he knew. How much of your thinking is based on fact? How much of your thinking is based on opinion? The quality of your life, and that of others, is greatly impacted by your answer to that question. Godspeace!
