Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - December 03, 2007

Good morning,

Our devotion for today comes from Job 42:3 "Surely I spoke of things I did not understand; I talked of things too wonderful for me to know."  

Remember this morning, and throughout today, at work, home, school, church, military,  or whereever you are, it's easy to thank God when he does what we want.  But God doesn't always do what we want.  Ask Job.

Remember, his empire collapsed, his children were killed, and what was a healthy body became a rage of boils. From whence came this tragedies?  From whence will come any help?

Job goes straight to God and pleads his case.  His head hurts. His body hurts.  His heart hurts.  And God answers.  Not with answers but with questions.  An ocean of questions.  After several dozen questions, Job has gotten the point.

What is it?  The point is this, God owes no one anything.  No reasons.  No explanations.  Nothing.  If He gave them, we couldn't understand them.  God is God.  He knows what He is doing.  When you can't trace His hand, trust His heart.   

 Have a blessed and wonderful trusting day!

Your brother in Christ,
J. H. Flakes, III
