TOPIC: God Is In Control

TEXTJob 21:22-34

“Shall any teach God knowledge? Seeing he judgeth those that are high.” – (Job 21:22)

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 15 October 2021 MESSAGE:

Hard as it may seem sometimes, we must recognise that there is no situation facing us that God is not aware of. This is why the right attitude in times of challenges is not to raise our hands in resignation, or to grumble, and get angry with Him. At such a time, we should draw nearer to God and trust Him more.

This is the example portrayed by Job. He could not understand why he was suffering; yet, in his anguish, he neither minimised his faith in God nor disregarded His power and ability. He declared that no one can teach God knowledge or question His propriety in permitting some things that happen to people. For instance, some people die after a fulfilled and luxurious life while others die following a life-long suffering of poverty and penury.


Either way, God is fully conversant with their situations. In accusing Job falsely and without evidence, his friends seemed to be oblivious of this fact as they imagined the worst possible fate for Him. He must be wicked, they thought; otherwise he who lived like a prince would not have lost virtually all in his life. But Job told them that things were not always what they looked like. The wicked may seem to get away literarily with murder, but fierce judgment awaits him at the end of life.

Trials and troubles should not make us to turn away from God. Instead, the suffering should be an incentive to walk more closely with the Lord, trust Him to tackle the challenges confronting us and to allow Him determine the best time to come to our rescue. We must never lose sight of the fact that whatever is happening, God is still in firm control of our affairs.

God’s everlasting arms are strong enough to hold you from falling during troubles.

Isaiah 38–41
