Trust in God

Trust in God

"Behold, Behemoth, which I made as well as you." – Job 40:15 NASB Reflecting on his problems, Job wondered what had happened and why. He tried to make sense of events. Finally, he found clarity but only after a personal encounter with God, who reminded Job of his limits and how little he understood. God did this by describing the scope of creation, specifically the behemoth. What is this creature? Some think it might be a hippopotamus or elephant. But one thing is certain: God knew everything about behemoths – what they eat, the source of their strength, where they hide, even how they are not frightened by turbulent rivers (vs. 15-23). Through this description, God delivered a powerful message. If He knows so much about behemoths, does He not know about every detail of our lives? How can we doubt Him? How can we not trust Him? How can we not believe that He is working everything together for good (Romans 8:28)? Jesus taught in Matthew 6:25-34 that we should not worry about anything. We should realize how the Father feeds the birds of the air, even though “they do not sow, nor reap, nor gather crops into barns” (v. 26). We can see how He clothes the lilies of the field. Therefore, we need to trust Him and “seek first His kingdom” (v. 33). Don’t give in to worry or doubt. Instead, think about all God has promised you. Be faithful to His call. Trust Him completely. He is your Creator! Prayer Father, thank You for Your awesome creation. I trust my life to You. Help me to be faithful to Your call. In Jesus’ name, amen. Extended Reading Job 40
