best guesses

IMG_0335Job 40:6-42:6

The LORD first challenges Job, and Job quickly repents and submits.  While Job was right to defend himself, he really did not understand God enough to explain what was happening to him.  God describes two powerful creatures, showing that if humans cannot explain them, they certainly cannot come close to understanding their creator.

Our common approach to science quickly eliminates the wonder of what is.  The moment anyone dares to suggest ignorance of the basic issues of life, he is bombarded with answers, in spite of the fact that most of those answers are best guesses.  Sadly, most of the best guesses come from a scientific community which refuses to entertain the suggestion of a creator.  All Job needed to face the reality of God’s existence was another look at what is.

LORD, forgive us for refusing to see you in what you have made.
