God is God

God is God.
God created the universe by a word from His mouth.
There is nothing He cannot do.
God is God.
And we are not...

That is the message I get from Job chapters 38 to 42.

God asks lots of questions...

Job 40

1 "Then the Lord said to Job,
2 “Do you still want to argue with the Almighty?

You are God’s critic, but do you have the answers?”...

6 Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind:
7 “Brace yourself like a man,

because I have some questions for you,

and you must answer them.
8 “Will you discredit my justice

and condemn me just to prove you are right?

9 Are you as strong as God?

Can you thunder with a voice like his?

10 All right, put on your glory and splendor,

your honor and majesty.

11 Give vent to your anger.

Let it overflow against the proud.

12 Humiliate the proud with a glance;

walk on the wicked where they stand.

13 Bury them in the dust.

Imprison them in the world of the dead.

14 Then even I would praise you,

for your own strength would save you.
15 “Take a look at Behemoth,[a]

which I made, just as I made you...

1 [c]“Can you catch Leviathan[d] with a hook

or put a noose around its jaw?

2 Can you tie it with a rope through the nose

or pierce its jaw with a spike?

3 Will it beg you for mercy

or implore you for pity?

4 Will it agree to work for you,

to be your slave for life?

5 Can you make it a pet like a bird,

or give it to your little girls to play with?"

In the entire conversation, God never answers Job's questions!

God is God.
And we are not...
