Job 42:2 – Do you have the faith of Job?

Today’s Reading: Job 40:1‐ 42:17, 2 Corinthians 5:11‐21, Psalm 45:1‐17, Proverbs 22:14

Job 42:2 I know that you can do all things,
and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.

Context: God has appears to Job in a cloud and challenges him.  “Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty?… Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me.”  Job 42:2 is how Job begins his response.

Observations:

  • I know
    • God can do all things
    • No purpose of God’s can be thwarted

What a powerful statement knowing what Job has gone through.  Job is still a man of faith in God’s power and God’s purpose.

Apply: “Father, increase my faith.  Help me to walk like Job; knowing your purpose will be accomplished.”

What response would it prompt in our lives if we truly believed that no purpose of God’s can be thwarted?
