Job 38:31-38 (NKJV) 31 “Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loose the belt of Orion? 32 Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs? 33 Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth? 34 “Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, That an abundance of water may cover you? 35 Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, And say to you, ‘Here we are!’? 36 Who has put wisdom in the mind? Or who has given understanding to the heart? 37 Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the bottles of heaven, 38 When the dust hardens in clumps, And the clods cling together?

Job had his round of questions. Now God answers Job here in chapter 38. And God will teach Job. God begins His teaching right where Job left off in the subject of nature. God the Creator begins there, and He will bring Job to where He wants to bring Job. God will take Job from a physical knowledge to spiritual wisdom. We find this teaching principle all through the Word of God. It begins where we are in our understanding of things, which is derived from worldly wisdom, and it brings us to where God wants us to be. And that is for us to have wisdom from above. This is how our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ teaches us, just as He taught Nicodemus, Jesus starts with the physical and He takes us to the spiritual. Jesus starts with our worldly wisdom and gives to us wisdom from God. This is how God is teaching Job here in chapter 38. We find God the Creator start where Job left off in the subject of nature. And in these verses 31 through 38. God starts with our knowledge of the solar system. What do we know about those tremendous stars in the night sky above? Can we move them around and set their placement in the heavens above the earth? And what do we know about the clouds? Do we know exactly how they are formed so that we can control them and make it rain on dry barren land? And can we control lightning, so that we can make it appear when we want to safely harness its power? And what about our own bodies. Do we have complete knowledge of how the mind works and what about our hearts? Even with all the great advances of medical science, only God the Creator knows exactly how our bodies are formed and how it works. Obviously, only God the Creator has complete wisdom of all creation. My friends, have you known God through His creation? All of creation reveals the greatness of God the Creator. But creation will not bring a person to a saving knowledge of Christ. Only the Holy Spirit of God through the Word of God can move the hearts of people to repentance and turn them to Christ for salvation. Therefore, my Christian friends, are you sharing the Word of God, and are you living it out in your lives?

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
