Hey Job, Where Were You?

in God Pain/Suffering

Here's todays Bible Minute with David Chadwick.

If you're going through a difficult time today and life seems just troublesome, remember Job. He went through a terribly difficult time. He had all kinds of physical, emotional and mental problems he had to face.

And yet his healing began in Job, the 38th chapter when he went to God and heard God ask him this powerful, profound question: "hey Job, where were you when I created the foundations of the earth?" (Job 38:4, para.)

The answer is Job was nowhere nor were we. God is God. He created this world. He knows everything that's going on in our world so during our tumultuous times let us all remind ourselves we were nowhere when God created the world. God did create the world. He created us. He oversees our problems and we can trust Him with all of them.
