Then Job answered the Lord and said:
“I know that You can do all things and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.”
One of my favorite songs is a worship song called Never Lost. The bridge and the chorus of the song goes like this:
Bridge: Right now, I know You’re able
My God, come through again
Chorus: You can do all things
You can do all things but fail
‘Cause You’ve never lost a battle
No, You’ve never lost a battle
And I know, I know You never will
The song speaks to the reality of the God of the universe. He is the undisputed, undefeated champion of the universe. Exodus 15:3 calls the Lord a Mighty Warrior who fought the battles of the people of Israel. Jeremiah 20:11 says that the Lord is with us like a mighty warrior! He conquered the enemy nations in the Old Testament, but even greater than that He conquered death when Jesus rose from the Grave after going to the Cross (1 Corinthians 15). Hallelujah! God can do all things!
The man of God named Job speaks to this reality in Job 42. As you may know Job was a man of God who walked with Him and endured some intense hardship. He literally lost everything near and dear to him but his own life. He spends the majority of the book processing what all is going on with some of his friends, then the Lord speaks. God encounters Job in chapters 38-41 and reveals Himself to Job. Job cannot help but to respond by acknowledging God’s infinite power and authority. Later in the chapter he actually chooses to repent for his ignorant words and chooses to trust in the Lord. Perhaps we could use the reminder of the God we follow and worship. With so much uncertainty, one thing is for certain: God is still in control and is still at work. So choose to trust Him today!
