Work/Works – Day 30

Job 26:13-14

By His breath the skies became fair; His hand pierced the gliding serpent. And these are but the outer fringe of His works; how faint the whisper we hear of Him. Who then can understand the thunder of His power?

The Thought

It seems right as we come to the end of this month looking at “work” that we spend some more time contemplating God’s work and all that He has done. During his long illness Job had plenty of time to do that. In the first chapter of Job, we see that God, with the confidence that Job would stay faithful, gave Satan permission to attack him. And he did stay faithful!

Job lost all his family and his property, but Job had three friends who stayed by his side during this very long tragic time. Unfortunately, the friends did not do the best for Job trying to persuade him that he must have done something wrong for God to allow satan to do all that he did. The whole book makes an interesting study.

In these verses today Job is encouraging his companions to think more about all the work that God has done. But later God Himself responds from a whirlwind (Job 38:1-41:34). Those chapters make good reading as The Creator of Heaven and earth describes some of the things His hand has made.


Think about God’s creation today, what do you appreciate most?

How would you answer those who believe in evolution and not creation?

Read some of Job today and be encouraged to believe that God created everything with a purpose. Praise Him for all He has done for you.
