Omnipresent God // Wednesday, August 27
Posted: Wednesday, August 27
2 Corinthians 1:12-2:11
Verse of the day:
But he knows where I am going. And when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold. (Job 23:10)
Even the subheading of this chapter is daunting: “Job’s Eighth Speech.” That banner alone brings with it a certain level of futility. This is not Job’s first complaint, and it won’t be his last. The man has lost so very much. His children are gone, his livelihood is destroyed, and even his health has been robbed from him.
“My complaint today is still a bitter one, and I try hard not to groan aloud. If I only I knew where to find God, I would go to his court.”
As followers of Christ, we passionately believe that our God is omnipresent. We believe that our God is everywhere at the same time and aware of all things. We do not believe, however, that we will always feel his presence. We do not believe that God will always reveal his presence to us. And in those moments, how do we respond?
Job had a thousand reasons to believe that God had abandoned him, and yet, in that time, Job’s soul protested, “He knows where I am going, and when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold.”
