Can you understand the mysteries surrounding God All-Powerful?

Posted: November 21, 2015 in God's Love Letters to you - The BIBLE (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth), Uncategorized

“Can you understand the mysteries surrounding God All-Powerful?” asks Job’s friend in trying to help him understand his drastic change in circumstances. He then goes on, “They are higher than the heavens and deeper than the grave…these mysteries outreach the earth and the ocean.” (Job 11:7-9)    People have a tendency to see everything in self-centered, self-centric ways. It is difficult to look up from your circumstances and see that Jesus never stops walking next to you…encouraging you…in a world that trumpets the accomplishments of the godless and evil…  He is supernatural…transcending the laws of nature…full of amazing grace. Always with his ear inclined to hear the repentence of those in rebellion. Do you ever get tired of the fight? Of trying to make the world fit into your limited worldview? Do you ever wonder how to leave fear behind in a world dedicated to making you anxious and fearful?

Reach out in prayer…”Surrender your heart to God, turn to him in prayer, and give up your sins–even those you do in secret.” (Job 11:13-14).

What will you gain in return?   “Then you won’t be ashamed; you will be confident and fearless.” (Job 11:15) Life ends. God ceases to breathe his life-giving earthly atmosphere into you. You will travel to one of two places: 1) “…I travel to the land of darkness and despair, the place of no return.” (Job 10:21), or 2) “…we know that God raised the Lord Jesus to life. And just as God raised Jesus, he will also raise us to life. Then he will bring us into his presence together with you.” (2 Corinthians 4:13-14)
