Our Sovereign Creator
“Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?" Job 11:7
"...the Lord answered Job... 'Who is this who darkens counsel by words without knowledge? ... Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding." Job 38:1-4
The mighty Creator of the universe continued speaking. He pointed to His sovereign hand behind light, behind the ocean tides, behind the evaporating waters that rise as clouds over the seas before watering the land, and behind the wind currents that warm and cool the planet according to His divine providence:
"Who shut in the sea with doors, when it burst forth...
When I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther,
And here your proud waves must stop!’...
Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth?
Tell Me, if you know all this.
Where is the way to the dwelling of light?
By what way is light diffused,
Or the east wind scattered over the earth?...
"Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?
Can you set their dominion over the earth?
Can you lift up your voice to the clouds,
That an abundance of water may cover you?" Job 38:8-34
"I am the Lord your God,
Who divided the sea whose waves roared—
The Lord of hosts is His name.
And I have put My words in your mouth;
I have covered you with the shadow of My hand,
That I may plant the heavens,
Lay the foundations of the earth,
And say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’ ”Isaiah 51:14-16
"For by Him [our Lord, Jesus Christ] all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist." Colossians 1:16-17
