Is There Any Question?
"Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?
Or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail...?"
Hey there! Thanks for stopping by to read this post today! :) I pray that it "hits the spot" for your day, kind-of like a warm cup of tea or coffee! :) (Oh, and yep, that's some up close snowflakes in the picture above!!!! Cool huh?!)
To start off, I have two questions for you!
1) Do you ever find yourself comparing yourself to others or wishing that there were things that you could "customize" yourself to be?
2) Do you ever have something that seems pretty impossible in life?
I can personally answer a hearty "Yes" to those two questions. But, ya know, God has a few things to say in His Word that put those two questions and all the feelings and situations involved with them, into a different perspective! Soak in what He has to say! (I sure am! :)
"Then The Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who is that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. Where was thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? decalre, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb? When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it, And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors, And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed? Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place; That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment. And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken. Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth? Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death? Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all. Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof, That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof? Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great? Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war? By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth? Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder; To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man; To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth? Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew? Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth? Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee? Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are? Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart? Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven, When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together? Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions, When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait? Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.
"Then Job answered The Lord, and said, I know that Thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from Thee." ~Job 38:9-41 & 42:1-2
"Behold, I am The Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?" -Jeremiah 32:27
Wow. Pretty humbling isn't it? Sure gives a different perspective too, huh? Grin. These words of The Lord really touch my heart to be in awe of Him and grateful for Who He is and who I am, because of Him!
Is there any question that you are fearfully and wonderfully made?! Is there any question that you are unique and incomparable? Is there any question that you should try to change who you are because you're not good enough?! There shouldn't be!! We shouldn't let there be, not after knowing Who it is that thought of us before we were even conceived, gave us life and fashioned us in the one-of-a-kind design that we are!
Is there any question that our "impossibles" are just hopeless causes and depressing "points" in life?
There shouldn't be!!! We're talking about THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS that is personally involved in every aspect and detail of our life!!!!! Whoa baby!!!!! Let's hand over those impossibles into the hands that formed the world and let Him take care of them, ok?!! :)
P.S. I didn't type it all, but go on to read Job chapters 39-42 too! It's incredible!!!
Blessings to you friends! May you know your invaluable worth this week and may you entrust God with everything that seems impossible and hopeless! :)
