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.
- 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?
